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.
