  • As everyone says the trails are not well marked, but we had no problem getting around since it's not very big. Just pay attention to where the road is and keep it on your left, or right coming back. T...  more »

  • Climbed a fairly steep trail up the "mountain" and it was awesome! Very cool winding trails, with an easier slow slope option as well, animal tracks, and I even saw a deer leap across the path ahead of me. Lots of interesting fungus and flora as well
  • A real disappointment. Not worth it this park has a lot of potential. They should take a look at what Quebec has done with petit train du nord and hiking trails in eastern townships so much better.
  • Trails need to be wider for families biking. The bird houses also need a Champion to update and refurbish as they are getting older. I wonder if there is a person in the building who could refinish while they are sitting at their post doing their time in the building.
  • Great place for a walk or mountain biking. Bring your lunch and eat it in the pavilion.
  • Lovely hiking with friends :) It's peaceful and beautiful here. I was exhausted from walking because there is a lot of land to explore! Definitely a place to pause at the craziness of life, and let your mind relax and enjoy the tranquility from a nice walk.
