Parking lot is at 1251 Snow Valley Road in Minesing. The trail starts with a short flat stretch followed by a steep uphill climb that feels like it goes on forever. The trail is well marked and there is a nearby snowmobile trail. This is a very friendly winter pathway as there are cedar rails along the uphill climb indicating where the trail continues. There are also sign markers indicating which direction to follow. we hopped off the trail and followed a ravine halfway back for variety.

We take our dog to this trail year round and we love it. We have used our snowshoes but it’s well packed down to hike in boots. There are several little side trails and it’s good excersise. Not very flat though so if you are walking with someone that struggles with hills, it’s probably not the trail for them. It’s very pretty and peaceful.
