Nice springtime route. It dries up sooner than some of the other greenbelt trails.

Great place for birdwatching within city limits. Lots of marshlands for the occasional muskrat too!

Bring boot grips because it is extremely icey. Avoid this trail for a couple more weeks!

Nice set of trails. Still snow and ice covered. Not much mud yet. Boardwalk ice mound is getting narrow, may be treacherous in a week. Lots of chickadees and squirrels around. Deer prints and tree rub marks to be seen.

I would recommend the north trail, #27 across the road 'West Hunt Club's for those who wish a more 'woodsy' feel since you need to swerve and bend under and around branches. Very peaceful and beautiful for snowshoeing or cross country skiing.

Five stars because it packs a few thing I like into a short loop: a long boardwalk, an exposed rock clearing, a picturesque pond, and mature maple bush. A potential challenge is that the trails through the bush can be hard to follow, especially in the fall when they are covered in leaves.

Trail was muddy due to recent rainfall, but still easily traversed. Not much as far as wildlife and very peopley for Wednesday morning. GPS was acting up at points as well.

It’s a swampy mess right now with all the rain but if you wear your rain boots, it’s great!

not enough wildlife, a mess of cut/shredded trees, mapping not accurate.

A beautiful trail through a beautiful forest close to Stoney Swamp. It follows the Rideau Trail for a part of it. I highly recommend it for the family or anyone who wants to be out in nature.

Nice hiking area to bring your dog! There are a lot of different “off route” trails that give you the option to extend your hike and see different things. Dogs are allowed during spring, summer, and autumn but not during winter.
