My family and I did the north end of Torbolton Forest. We had heard this area had pine trees and sand dunes but although the soil is very sandy, we didn't see any dunes. There were lots of pine trees though! You park at the community centre on Len Purcell Drive and cross the street for the trails.

Heard lots of birds and saw blue jays, woodpeckers and red squirrels.

The trail itself is dead flat with very little elevation changes. It was nice but somewhat repetitive after awhile - hence the 2 star rating. .

I'm curious to walk the southern portions of the trail to see if that's where the dunes are.
