Very nice trails with quite a few different routes to try. Never overly crowded and quite clean (not a lot of littering). Definitely wear running shoes as it can be rocky in some places and this time of year the fallen leaves cover a lot...More

If your like to hike and do the trails you will love the Ardagh Bluffs. I would wear running shoes only because the walkway trail could have tree roots in the path.

This park has kilometers of single track biking trails that are easy, moderate and difficult. It was well under-used and there was very little traffic. Despite this, the trails were in amazing condition. We went two days in a row while visiting Barrie.

We are so blessed to have thew Ardagh Bluffs in our neighbourhood. For those not familiar, the bluffs are a wooded area, generally along a hillside running from just west of Highway 400 at Essa Road all the way to the western boundary of Barrie,...More

A nice place to wander away a few hrs. While the scenery is a bit monotonous, the forest is a nice, quiet area to get some peace. There are a few different trails, coded by colour/symbol. Trees are painted along a trail to guide you.
