good hiking and awesome for mountain bikes pretty neat jumps too

love the opportunity to be able to get the chance to look at the moment

This really is a nice spot that’s close to everything, yet secluded enough that you don’t hear other noises (traffic, homes near by, other hikers). Lots of trails that weave in an out of each other so watch out for other trail users!

Nice trail for all levels of experience. A bit muddy in spots.

inline sk8n at it's best...bring water and your big girl wheels...this is a clean, fast, fun ride. The initial hill is fun at the beginning of the ride and the last challenge climb at the end. Music is a motivator...come out and ride once and you'll be hooked.

Such a beautiful trail! Really peaceful, you can’t hear road traffic and I didn’t run into many people. The main trail isn’t super well marked so it’s easy to go off on side trails rather than the main loop, but it’s also easy to find your way back. After one hike it’s easily become one of my favourite trails in the area.

Walking the dog here, my wife and I chose this first due to the distance. We’ve been here three times now, the first being on a 40-45 degree day where the grounds were soft and wet in places and also in the mid 20s where everything is frozen. This is a great quick hike/trail run that offers ample amounts of hills and a ton of great views to make the 2 miles go by extremely fast. It’s a great go to trail if you’re short on time but want a quick workout because of the few hills offered.

My wife and I walked our dog here on a brisk 28 degree day. Parking in the scenic overlook lot and taking a right to lead us through some wooded areas, around the gathering areas with pavilions, past the dam and beaches was boring. Once we got past the beach area the trail turned into a much better walk than it had started filled with wooded areas, tighter trails and plenty of sites. My GPS only tallied 3.7 miles but I would recommend this to anyone as it was an easier trail with minimal ascents and descents to be concerned about.

Fun trail and nice views of the river. Since it is a mountain bike trail it is a little hilly and twisty, but not too hard to walk.

Nice trail. Some decent hills and very well marked.

This is a nice casual hike for taking the dogs on. We went on a mild winter day after the snow had melted. If you stay on the paved loop, it's perfect for wet days. We made the mistake of going off onto the trails past the bridge which were way too bogged down. We'll try again in the summer!

Great for a quick run

Very poorly marked trails. Easy terrain. Too many multi-purpose trails and not enough exclusively hiking trails.

Very nice trail. Plenty of hills.

Enjoyable winter hike that was relatively easy. The trail is well marked. There was heavy bike traffic so would recommend hiking opposite direction as indicated on trail markers per day of the week. My GPS recorded 7.7 miles.

I hike here often in all seasons. Nice, low traffic trails. Some parts of the trails are occasionally non accessible with higher water levels because they cross low marshy areas or boardwalks over water. Various difficulties depending on trail also. Warmer months does have heavy mosquitos.

Decent hills on the mountain bike trails. Lots of wildlife. It has a lot of unmarked spur trails, and it’s not marked very well.

We did this trail in October in rain and snow and it was still a great time. we had a pretty easy time staying on the trail with very few map checks.

Pretty hike overall. The trail is relatively flat and easy overall. The trails are very well marked. There is some road noise and train whistles a few time during this hike. My GPS recorded nearly 8 miles around this loop, not 6.5 miles.

Very nice trail. Was dry even though it had just rained earlier in the day. Beautiful and scenic but yet still challenging to anyone looking for a good walk or run.

I've been coming here for years to swim with my horses but have not been in the trails until last weekend. They are beautiful and offer different kinds of terrain. Bass river riders have done an amazing job grooming and maintaining all of the trails for horses .. you could easily spend an entire day here riding all over. In the summer, go early as there is quite the flutter of activity and can get quite warm (not a lot of tree coverage on some trails).

We went on November 10th, 2018. They had gotten a few inches of snow the night before, but it was a good workout and beautiful!
We only walked the short loop but definitely want to hike the longer trail!

amazing trail. could use a few features though like a few jumps and berms on the turns. other than that it's a very fun fast flow trail
