It is a nice forest walk but there are very few trail markers and they dog signs also need to be updated.

Really nice walk! Took me around 2.5 hours for the route provided. It’s definitely not dog friendly right at the start/finish but I’d say that 3/4 of the route was dog friendly. I parked at the Old Quarry Trail parking lot and there were signs saying no dogs on the trails but I had my dog on leash the whole time and no one said anything. It wasn’t overly scenic, but it was a nice forest walk! There’s lots of ways to make the walk shorter or longer so I’d definitely do this one again!

Nice place for a walk. It’s mostly flat so it’s easy for everyone. Lots of recent rain and standing water meant lots of mosquitoes. Take something for the chickadees and nuthatches. They fly at you at the first junction on the north side of the loop (leaving from the Eagleson parking lot).

Love this trail! But got completely accosted by some woman about the dog, both on the trail and in the parking lot. There are trails that are clearly marked no dogs in the conservation area, but others say dogs are ok or there is no signage. I was on one of the dog green trails. They should update their signage so it’s more clear for both summer and winter as their are a couple of signs that say no dogs in the winter and some that have no restrictions. Otherwise a great walk.

Good 3 hour hike with swamps, forests, grassland, boardwalks, Canadian Shield, potential for deer (early morning). Hike through 2 west end NCC trails (NCC 23 - Old Quarry, NCC 24 - Stony Swamp) that intermingle with no roads to cross. Parking either from Old Quarry or Stony Swamp - whatever is preferable.
