The trails were pretty flat and awesome. I really enjoyed it. Me and my g/f even saw about 5 or 6 deer as well.

My daughter and I hiked the PimiteouiTrail. There were fabulous views and we saw plenty of deer.

Nice to see some water flowing after the rain. Not too muddy, only a few slick spots.

Wake Robin Trail is closed due to construction to fix some erosion on the trail. All Other trails are open. Beautiful hike with a little stream that runs through it.

Nice, well marked trail with a great little visitors center on site. Trail was frozen and a little slippery in spots, especially on the downhill portions. There was a sign saying the Wake Robin portion was closed, so we did two quick loops of the Valley Trail portion.
