Due to the heat on the day that we visited, we only finished the "Red" routine, which is good enough walking for us. The mature trees along is not something that we could often see in the City, the density of young trees and natural...More

We hiked the red trail on Canada Day. Signage was great, no issues there at all. The views at the top are worth the effort to get to there. Don't wear flip flops (we saw more than a few people do that); the route is...More

Mom loves to hike, kids... sorta. But our 3 kids make it up the 2km red trail to the main look outs. Stunning views. In a super hot 32 degree day it offered lots of shade and its didn’t feel as hot in the forest....More

Excellently maintained trail, well marked with shoulder high red circles. Red trail is 8km with some challenging spots, wonderful views from the lookouts. Surprisingly few bugs, one cigarette carton tossed near parking lot otherwise litter-free. No graffiti either. Would be slippery on wet days.

This trail is well kept and a beautiful place to go for a hike to view a lovely escarpment at the end of the trail. There are guides on the trail to provide information about the trail and the area. A must attraction!

I saw a couple of people hiked with their dogs on the trail. However, some parts of the trail involve climbing a ladder/very steep stairs; so you might need to carry your dog up and down the ladder.
