Trail was quiet today. Only a couple of other hikers. Very humid, not much breeze on the forest floor, though you could hear it in the trees above. Got a little buggy, but no too bad. There is a part of the trail that is closed and says “private property,” and there are some areas which are still a little muddy. Overall a nice short trail in a beautiful forest.

DOG OWNERS.....trails are not leash free dog parks!!!! ...Keep .Your. Dogs. Leashed. !!! Abide by the rules and signage !!!! This is a Fantastic trail . Love love love it!!! Haven’t been here in mosquito season yet ...I’m guessing it’s very buggy esp with the many swampy areas (. This was very busy today, so if you’re avoiding other folks , i wouldn’t suggest you hike here )

I discovered this trail a few weeks ago. I am happy to report that it is still currently open during COVID and it’s a great, pretty big trail. I can easily be here for an hour and a half and not get bored. It offers lots of different terrain. Big paths, small paths, boardwalks, steep hills, swamps, and ponds. I would definitely recommend!!

Great trail! Nice variety with the hills, deeper forest, boardwalks and ponds. A little difficult to navigate on the backend as AllTrails doesn’t quite line up. Otherwise, a real gem so close to Cambridge!

This is a great trail. It can be totally relaxing or if you want to get your heart rate up you can move a little quicker over the hilly terrain. It's kid/dog friendly and the scenery is beautiful. We feel blessed to live only 10 minutes away.

This is my favourite trail in the area, and I think my pup agrees too! The boardwalk is beautiful, its so quiet and peaceful. I’ve rarely run into anyone else while walking. It’s beautiful year-round but there are a lot of mosquitos in the summer and it does get quite mucky, it is situated on wetlands after all!

Great trail! A little muddy at this time of year, mostly just by the boardwalks though. Lots of trail options. Some hills here and there. My pup loved the walk as well!

Great trail didn’t see any dog poop from what I seen , bring some bug spray lol . If you just stick to the loop it’s 30-1 hour depending on how your walking .

Good trail conditions, some muddy spots. Took the boardwalk trail which is missing half the boards due to rot, so a very muddy hike. Found out when we came out the boardwalk trail is closed, however, no signage on the trail to indicate this. Check the map at the kiosk in the parking lot.

Beautiful cross country skiing today. The car GPS understands that 1822 Spragues Rd Cambridge is the parking lot, though there are two lay-bys at trail heads on the other side of the park on Beke Rd.

This tract can be very busy . It used to have a nice board walk but it fell into disrepair and was closed last time I was there . It illustrates the glaciation that has occurred in Ontario during the last ice age . Very nice forest cover with lots of dog crap . Of greatest interest is that this forest is part of the Grand Valley trail system . As a long distance backpacker it is a nice break from the road sections . You can connect to the Dryden Tract via the GVT to make for a longer more enjoyable hike . There is a lot of people and dog crap at Dryden too ! Enjoy !!
