This trail was a pretty loop around a forest, through an open field and back along the river. The river is amazing right now and flowing fast! Some lower parts of the trail were pretty icy today.

beautiful trail with some of the nicest scenery in the area. Dogs are welcome with is a bonus.

I love these trails. Nice scenery and rugged enough to be fun. The Kintail Riverside trail can get icy in winter so ice grips are recommended for winter walks.

would definitely put this at the higher end of easy. More inclines than I expected, many rocks and roots to navigate. make sure you have a credit card or exact change ($6) for parking

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.
