The start of the trail has the R. Tait McKenzie Memorial Museum and the James Naismith Museum (only open in the warmer months), which could be an interesting diversion. It costs $6 to park in the conservation area but the grounds themselves are fairly extensive and there is a playground too.

Very nice trail with great scenery. Paid parking is a bit of a deterrent, but sometimes you can be lucky enough to catch someone as they’re leaving who will pass their ticket down. Love this trail in the winter.

A historical trail with well marked trails. Slightly rocky in spots with a mix of forest, hills and fields. Seats long the way for a pause if needed. Posted map boards very helpful. Hike was in the beginning of April with very icy trails. Intend to visit again in warmer weather when trails are more navigable and histoical facilities are open. Very nice with a fair amount of family hiking use.

Good little trail for all ages. Great place to pack a lunch and play with the kids at the park and museum.

My family and I hiked this trail in the late fall. It was a pretty trail and you walk through a nice hardwood forest with a field in the middle. I'm not sure how the trail is in the winter but the Mill of Kintail Conservation website says its open year round. The start of the trail has the R. Tait McKenzie Memorial Museum and the James Naismith Musuem (although open in the warmer months), which could be an interesting diversion. It costs $6 to park in the conservation area but the grounds themselves are fairly extensive and there is a playground too.
