Pleasant walk except for the section that runs parallel to the highway, which is completely overgrown.

First section of trail is very clean and keep up until you start in the back with overgrown weeds and with the odd trees across the path and not a bad trail for a quick walk

Overall this trail was good. there were several muddy sections, most of which had logs to go over, or a side trail. As other people said, the signage is almost non existent, so that's a drawback. But overall decent and since it's close, we would come here again.

Pretty solid trail. Several forks without any signage in person or on alltrails. 3-4 completely mudded out sections. Right side of loop a bit too close to 401 and it’s noise for our preference.

This is a lovely wooded area with many wildflowers such as anemones and trout lily. There is skunk cabbage in the low lying areas. Be prepared to navigate wet areas by balancing on well used logs. Great for dog walking. Toyota has a meadow trail off this area which is a great addition. Though private, I have never had issues using it.

Good walking trail. Muddy in the spring. Put most spots have a go around spot.

This trail is great, but you will have difficulty following the AllTrails route as it is severely overgrown in the back portion. If you stick to the blazed areas you will be fine. Beautiful wooded area, it’s 7k including the Toyota loop.

I would give a 3.5 if I could. Overall the trail is nice. Lack of signage makes things confusing.

Posted no trespassing but added signage for trail use after 3:00pm and weekends.. Pleasant walk with a large pond. Highway sounds do not have ale away f I’m the serenity of walking in the woods.

You will need a permit to use this trail . Information available on their website . Primarily used for school outings hence the permit . Beautiful place , great for snowshoeing and cross country skiing . In the summer the bugs will eat you alive . Better use this one soon as the Toyota plant is going to gobble it up in a few years . Enjoy !
