A nice flat trail for biking. Saw a beaver dam and some babbling brooks.

Have ridden this trail for years. Orillia to Barrie. Cross/gravel bike. Trail is predominantly smooth fine crushed gravel and cuts through bush, wetlands and small communities. There are noticeable inclines but nothing too significant, Very close to Lake Simcoe if you are so inclined. Lots of good views and occasionally well-behaved puppies dragging their owners out for a walk. Have seen herons, beavers, porcupine, eagles, hawks, deer, turtles and snakes, usually early morning not during tourist season (June to August). Lots of bikes on a weekend but still not too busy. Big biking community here. Well maintained.No motorized vehicles!

Used to ALWAYS see baby turtles, frogs, and snakes all over the trail. Now the swamp seems to be all dried mostly. Less wildlife. Except on the one side a grey heron returns every year! Anyways, super easy well maintained trail for walking running and biking!

I only went a few km in and back starting at James street but it was a great trail. I loved seeing the graffiti tunnel. It still had some snow and mud but to be expected this time of year. only complaint was the smell from the dump was strong today.

I love rail trails, so what's there not to like about this route. I didn't do an out and back, but rather made a loop, coming back from Barrie via the Lakeshore. Totally enjoyed.

Went for my first round trip Orillia to Barrie today, nice trail good condition lots of shaded sections but as a few people have commented not many lake views, but it is an old rail line so it was not built for scenic vistas

Nice easy trail simply for walking outdoors or jogging, cycling, walking the dog. Marsh area in the northern section just south of the OPP Training Center is pretty.

We hiked the trail and did three stations but found it quite monotonous. This was originally built as a rail line and that is exactly what it is. The rail slag is covered with screening which can be thick is some spots, so be careful. We decided to come come back and bike it and that is what we did today. Still the same opinion as far as the scenery goes but great for exercise. Pretty flat and all the road crossing are fairly deserted so the bike ride can be pretty unencumbered.

My girlfriend and I took the trail from Barrie to Orillia and back. (Approx 75km total) It was a decent trail, not a much lake view scenery, most of the trail runs through the woods. I would NOT recommend this trail for anyone with a road bike with thin tires. The rough road and fine gravel made for a tough ride. Mountain bikes and cruisers will be fine.

I use a section of the trail fairly often for both biking and walking. One of my favourites.

Is this trail good for a road bike, or mountain gravel bike?

It’s not a particularly interesting trail. Lots of poison ivy.
