Minnow Lake Trail is a lovely hike and is also an excellent opportunity to see the Petroglyphs located near the beginning of the trail. We saw lots of wildlife (grasshoppers, snake, toads, birds, chipmunks). It is a bit hilly but can still be easily done with kids. Not too tough so long as you are fine climbing rocks and boulders for a short section. The views from the lake are wonderful.

This is a pleasant trail with nice views of Minnow lake. However the poison ivy was quite prolific and at times difficult to avoid since it sometimes closed in on the pathway from both sides! The path is steep in places but should be ok if you have reasonable shoes.

There are 3 trails in total that all meet at certain points along the way to form a loop. We took the Marsh Trail and it was well marked with blue markers, not yellow as indicated on the signs. A few big trees were down and lots of poision ivy be aware. As well with July the deer flies were very bad. Nice boardwalks and you cross a nice creek with a shady spot. Of course we went and viewed the Petroglyphs such an amazing piece of history. Gates are locked at 5:30pm

On the easy side of moderate. Gets your heart pumping, but not too much climbing involved. Lots of wildlife - we saw garter snakes, toads, minnows & a turtle skeleton. Various mushrooms & fungi. Keep your ears & eyes open for creatures in the brush. The rocks on Minnow Lake are a great place to sit for a while & take it all in.

Petroglyphs Provincial Park offers a couple of decent hiking trails, most of them going through forests with some nice lake views. The one i hiked was very easy.
