Went for an afternoon hike. It was with lots of up hills, downhills. Some part of the trail goes by the river. There was lots of wild life and different type of wild flowers. It was overall a good hike. Definitely recommend and will do it again.

Free parking. If you take the loop starting from the west side, can avoid hill climb lol. Initially near highway and can hear it, but eventually end up in nice forests with no sounds. Lovely 5km.

Visit today 1st time for a trail running and have a fun time. Beautiful scenery with some good technical uphill, downhill, muddy, stony road and single lane. Some obstacles and in forest on the hill you can run around off-trail and run on branch and tree. Still very muddy and wet on the ground with some fallen trees, but that's what's trail running for. Definitely come back to explore and run again.

BTW, some of the trail marking is not clear, just be caution.

For what and where it is, beautiful spot year round. On rare occasion you might even spot some interesting wildlife! Trail is super easy, definitely not “moderate”

This trail blows all other Toronto trails I've walked out of the water. This is a real forest. Real animals (other than squirrels) live here (including lots of birds). Although you never get away from the hum of the highway, I can see why they almost turned this area is being turned into a national urban park.

The trail gets a fair bit of use. A downside in a more nature setting but perhaps gives you a bit of comfort in an urban park.

One negative: the trail needs signage and maps!

Great forest trail close to Toronto with a surprising amount of wildlife. The forest seemed open and inviting. The sound of the highway nearby was the only thing to remind you you were in the city. We stayed close to the ridge line which gave interesting views through the forest into the valley. The trail had a number of branches and side trails to wander down.

Great trail for running. Good straight aways, challenging hill climb and a good length for a short high intensity run.

Nice trail with a couple of hilly areas. Good for 1-2 hour walks. Free parking near campground entrance.

Nice, well groomed trails which were easy to navigate. There are various small side trails to explore, which all connect back to the main trail and were easy to figure out. I was here at 7a.m. and there were already numerous people on the trail (dog walkers, runners etc.), by the time I finished there were lots of people and dogs on the trail. There are a few river access points which was nice and dogs can get into the river and cool down, but be careful as there are fast currents throughout the river in some parts.

Note: parts of the trail are hilly and there are some significant inclines to navigate through the northern loop of the trail. Would recommend but suggest coming early morning to beat some of the 'trail traffic'!

Great workout - very hilly. Not a very exciting trail as far as scenery goes, very average forest and occasional glimpses of the Rouge, it was super hot so there wasn't even many birds around. Free parking.

Amazing trail! I go with family. So far we've tried two of the trails. The first one was difficult with lots of incline. I loved it but can't say my sister did lol. The second trail still had some hills but not as difficult. I would absolutely recommend this trail to everyone. It's well shaded so you won't get extremely hot but it's around 4km so take some water!
