Hard packed/fine gravel path for the most part. Good for bicyclist too. The trail follows a small creek for a good part. Nice enough walk for a bit of relaxation but can be noisy in some spots due to the urban environment.

Just a couple of notes.

This trail is marked April to October but considering it's hard-packed with crushed limestone there's no reason in my mind that it can't be used year round. I'm sure the locals do.

I don't see any reason why a wheelchair can't access this trail. It is somewhat hilly at points but there are no other obstacles that I would think to be an impediment.

First hike with my three kids under 6 years old. Great walk with a stop at the creek to look for toads , then some wildflower picking and pretending to exercise on the equipment placed on parts of the trail. Fun!

This trail is different than the other "Sheppard's Bush trail" in allmaps as this maps some of the routes within the conservation area itself. It's a nice open hardwood forest. We went on Easter and they had hidden eggs around the forest - was fun! It's nice to have healthy looking forests like this sprinkled in the busy GTA.
