Pleasant, super easy. Very much a walking path in a park as opposed to a trail through wilderness though.

Geese poo everywhere if you go off the trail. Very easy walk. They charge $4 per person during peak season on weekends.

The Lazy Way trail starts at the east end of the main loop at Milne Park, by the parking lot. The trail goes past the dam and then on go Markham road. It is fairly easy urban trail, meandering east through the woods, and is never too far from local houses. There are a couple of modern bridges to cross and plenty of park benches on the way for rest stops, if needed. The least attractive part of the trail goes under an overpass for Markham Road itself, just before the trail ends.

Recommended for easy road biking, walking and dog leash. Dam bridge under construction but scenic. Park is good for barbeque and road biking. Some shady places are beautiful. If you are mood to have easy going trail, then must visit.

We went for a walk on June 1st, a Saturday, at around half past noon, and were pleased with the lack of crowds. If you head into the woodlot (connected to the easternmost point of the Milne Dam Trail) you get to see a lovely little suspension bridge and boardwalk. Good for a nice easy weekend stroll to get the blood moving!

Milne park has some nice walks along narrow paths, but this was very unexciting - broad pathways with not enough adventure! That said, a nice stroll with a walker, I should think.

Is a good place to be on a picnic and be amongst green though isn’t exactly a trail that you would expect. lake is great. Walking along it gives you that feeling of being in seclusion but it’s a short one. Overall a good family place with outdoor picnics where kids can play.

Walked along the water on a cold winter day. Beautiful and calm.

It was okay. Big park if you want to play sports or have a picnic. Not much to see

The park itself is big with a wide path and other than lots of green space not much to look at. The trails on the out the edge take you into the woods and are more Intersting. It's a fun walk if your In the area and come before the park opens to vehicles(before may) and you can walk around without seeing a soul.

If I could I'd give this one a zero. It's 4 bucks each to get in if you follow the directions but if you drive north of the park and park on a residential street there are plenty of access points that are not monitored at all. The vast majority of this "conservation" area is mowed grass - perfect for large groups holding family or company picnics. The "trail" is not marked at all so we ended up doing a circuit of the park on a gravel path, it was pretty boring. We then found the "trail" which consisted of a short (probably 200 ft) walk through the woods which lead us to a 2 block walk through a residential area and then another short grassy walk to the lake. You can hear the heavy traffic from the 407 everywhere you go. The lake is beautiful and you' d swear you were in cottage country except for the loud traffic noise. This was a total waste of time.
