Rouge Valley Conservation Centre, Toronto Reviews
easy and short hike within thr city. not bad at all.
Beautiful park with trails along a very pretty creek. Geocaching too!
I went there with a group of teens on an October weekday. The office was closed, and the outdoor maps were quite sunbleached. It was hard to tell where the trails started and went. Luckily we met a number of fellow friendly hikers who were quite helpful. Once we got onto the trails, we were treated to some amazing views. Don't miss the lookout on the eastern branch on the VISTA trail. There are no signs about, but it gives a great view of the valley. These trails are very steep, and are not for the young or those with limited mobility. Once big issue we had: apparently the trail is used for horses as well it was very unpleasant to keeping having to watch our step from the "presents" they left scattered all along two trails we took. Can't the riders clean up after them?
Wheelchair accessible portapotties, lots of parking, great vistas, quiet forest 🌳 and varied forests. The only drawback is the highway is close, you definitely hear it and the loop is closed so you need to track back. Other than that it's witchy and wonderful.
Wonderful place to go for a walk, and enjoy the peace and quiet, surprisingly right in the city. My favourite place in Toronto, along with the Islands and the Bluffs.
