Nice and flat. Lots of different well groomed trails in the winter. Ideal place for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, or just a leisurely stroll. Can be crowded at times. Kid friendly, you could do most of the trails with an odd road stroller or even pulling a little sled.

Nice easy, flat, short scenic trail. Beautiful views of the Tiaga forest, but bring your mosquito repellant. This area rather wet so mosquitos are everywhere.

This trail is great for easy walking and seeing beautiful forest scenery and waterfowl. The trails are flat, not strenuous at all, many handicap accessible. Just don't expect to do any "hiking," and you will not be disappointed!

Very pretty in the summer. There are some woods in the back of the trail that lead off to some other very pretty trails. Wander lake is back there, it is a man-made lake that has quite a few ducks and other water birds. This is a very easy, wide , marked trail.

The boreal forest loop is a beautiful forest walk through a dense birch forest. We were here the end of July when it was dry. I imagine it could be full of water fowl in the spring.

Easy walk. Enjoyable. Spring it can be very wet so plan accordingly before and during break up. Plenty of geese and a few swans to see. A good easy quick and close walk to just get outside for a little bit.

An easy hike, more for flora and fauna than anything else, since the ups and downs are almost non-existent.

This is a nice trail, easy to walk. I live right down the streat and it's nice to go out there and walk during the summer. There is a migratory bird sanctuary there as well so there is penty to see. One plus about this trail is that there are several off chutes that are all labeled and have the distances on the label. This is very benificial for trail running.
