An incredible view with interesting side trails. Well marked and easy to follow, I'm excited to try it out again!

Well great hike. From rattlesnake to Crawford lake. 13.54 km. But I forgot to turn off the app on the way to dinner. Oooops!

We started early just stopped raining a couple of hours ago. It made no difference, it was an easy hike, yes with some very muddy places between rattlesnake and Crawford lake on the orange trail. But nothing anyone would cry over. At some points we thought the mud would have eaten our boots. It was just so funny. We did the board walk trail around the lake. It was so nice to hear laughing and giggling all the way to the other side.
We had lunch and a good break at the visitors area at Crawford centre and we were ready for the return hike.
Lots of people everywhere, nice to see families even with strollers which I wouldn’t recommend, but everyone was having fun. At the end skies cleared and were amazing spots for photos.

Great trail. Some parts allows for an easy option and a moderate option. Moderate option provided lots of different elevations and terrains. Decent look out views, buildings in the distance we're visible from top of cliffs

Very nice trail, great view, but lots of lazy idiots littering on the trail. You will find lots of dog poop bags, bottles, and other plastic along the trail; especially near the road areas. The park doesn't put any recycling bins or garbage bins along the trail. It's a real shame....

Great trail, the farther away from the entrance you go the quieter and less busy it gets. It’s nice that once you’re in far enough you can’t hear the highway anymore either.

Way to many people. My fault for venturing out on a Sunday so close to the city.
1st time in Rattlesnake Point.
Love the BTC though!

Way too crowded, lots of garbage left around. Actual trail is okay, I need a little more of a challenge , I guess. Nice views of the area.

Great trail! Clearly marked and adequately challenging. Rocky and muddy at points and crowded at the start of the trails but peaceful and quiet once you get further in. Wonderful experience 10/10 would recommend.

Good trail with some very nice views along the way. There are enough ups and downs to get some exercise, but I’d still consider it a very easy trail. It connects to the Bruce Trail, so it’s possible to turn this into a longer hike. It’s nice even during bad weather since there are enough trees to protect you from the rain.

Very nice trail. various side trails of the Bruce rail system in the area also. I'll be trying to to get it again soon.

I really thought it was beautiful

This is a great trail with some very challenging sections and the elevation changes are great.
Very busy, to be expected and a great fall day like today. And of course we want our conservation areas to be busy!

Down side of it being busy? Some sections of the trails are quite narrow in addition to being rocky so the traffic causes some jams.

Good day hike for any fitness level. There was one short side trail that involved a bit of climbing on rocky surface. Scenic views along the way to stop and rest. Took about 3 hours return to finish. Quite crowded once I arrived at Crawford Lake. Better to go early in the morning.

A great walk for any skill level. Great scenic views from the escarpment side. (South west side of trail)

Beautiful - except we got lost and ended up at Crawford Lake. Signs need to be better. Maybe we're just would be nice to see trail headers everywhere clearly marked.

Beautiful trail and views, easy stroll in the forest. We went on a long weekend and was surprisingly not packed. Will return. Pooch loved it too.

Great trail. Wish the markings were a little clearer as we got lost and never found the lake, but great park overall.

Nice easy trail - slightly busy with dogs and people. Shaded throughout with a couple of nice look out spots. On site parking (note: $7 fee per to enter the park). There is a side trail that takes you over to the Crawford Lake area which is nice if you want to add to the hike and cool off!
