Beautiful winter hike/walk went early before it got crowded. Xcountry skiing and snow shoeing are a popular activity on the trail

Belle randonnée mais beaucoup de bruit de ville.

Nice walk with the dog, the trail is well marked, and there are posts and maps at regular intervals. It was very icy at the beginning of the loop, but less so once you get onto the trail.

Nice easy walking trail. Path was easy to follow with many maps along the way. High traffic area. Parking is limited in the lot so you might have to park on the road. I went on a Saturday!

Had a beautiful fall day today for a hike. The trail was in great condition. Leaves were beautiful and chickadees were extremely friendly!

Quite charming if done during the fall season. Otherwise, not difficult.

Beau sentier très large et plat. Très facile d’accès et les chiens en laisse sont acceptés. Il y a beaucoup de mouches, alors n’oubliez pas votre bouteille d’insecticide.

nice trail but tonnes of bugs

I was the only person on the trail on a Thursday afternoon, highly recommend this path for beginners and those who want an easy/peaceful stroll. Make sure you bring bug spray, lots of them in some areas. Lots of shade too

misquitos were mental and the boardwalks a little in disrepair but still stunning. Chipmunks, bluejays, dragonflies and i presume bullfrog song was out in full.

Trail has some muddy spots still towards the T-S trail stations, and intense mosquito action there, too. Otherwise it's in great shape!

Muddy spots but manageable. Fern were unfolding. Mosquitoes also making a presence.

Good hike with the dog. Not intense but long enough to give you and your dog a good work out.

Marsh and woods. all flat. well travelled & busy. feed chickadees - they love the peanuts best. some magical spots with huge old trees and mossy shade-dappled nooks.

Easy trail as it is mostly flat. Lots of various trails this you can adjust how long you want to be out there. Trails and waypoints are well marked. Chickadees come easily to feed out of your hands, bring the kids. Do not however leave valuables in plain sight in your vehicle!

Near flat so 3 stars as not challenging. It’s definitely easy. But very beautiful! You can make it longer by adding in extra trails.

Very nice and quiet trail but nothing special. Bring seeds so you can hand feed birds especially in winter
