  • This is one of the most beautiful trails to hike on, especially during a sunny fall day, when leaf colors are peaking. The trail is quite easy, with a short, but not challenging ascent followed by a....  more »

  • I'm sure some of the hike was beautiful. But, due to the extreme amount of mosquitoes we were unable to enjoy any of it. We literally were running to get out. By the time we got back to the car we were covered in bites. This was all while wearing bug repellant that was fully functioning on other trails. At least the trail pamphlet was a semi-useful mosquito swatter that eventually turned into a graveyard for the ones that followed us into the car.
  • Nice hike with a little elevation change and a nice lookout.
  • A really great trail summer or winter.
  • This trail is really nice hike. I saw some really nice wildlife. Alot of different scenery as you are on your walk. It Only took me and my girlfriend 2.5 hours taking are time and soaking up the scenery. (Map said 3.5 hours)
  • This is a pretty 5.5 km trail. 1.2 km in there is a nice little stream that runs dry in July. At km 2.0 there is a really cool rock that looks like it's floating. At km 2.6 there is a great lookout. At 4.0 km you'll reach Bat Lake. In 2018 the University of Guelph was doing studies in the area, be respectful. Be prepared for lots of mosquitoes in May and June.
