The trails are marked well for the most part. with paint blotches on trees or stakes. pick your color and go. Remember if you turn back you will not see any paint blotches. so you have to look back to see them. We took our dog and we loved it. Trails were well groomed.

This trail was great. It was a sunny day and the forest is cool and comfortable. There's a lot to enjoy on this trail including interesting fungus, streams, a dam, and ferns galore. This is a wet, cool cedar landscape and so there's many mosquitoes. I wore icardine insect repellent as well as permethrin treated clothing and after an hour and a half I seem to have only gotten two bites. The trails are made of sandy loam, and at low points they can become muddy. However, not on mud is created equally: The lack of clay in the mud means that it will not cake onto your boots like Manitoba gumbo and by the time I got to the parking lot it had largely fallen off and my boots were clean. The trail is also well marked for the most part, and if ever I came to a fork, Alltrails helped to point the way. There are a number of trails at this site and I think that I'll be back to try out some more.

Sweet little trail. Just north of Sauble Falls trail. You could hit both in a row but this one is free

Trail signs are terrible and don’t give good direction. Mosquitos are out in full force. If looking for many hills the blue trail is great. Some water/muddy sections and bridges.

Extremely secluded. Felt uncomfortable walking any further than the first 300 meters with our kids, we turned around. Being bear territory and all it felt dangerous. Although, I can imagine it would have been a beautiful hike.
