Rouge Valley Conservation Centre - Review
This park is so huge and so surely gaining in popularity that it almost certainly will become Canada’s first urban national park. There’s over 40 square kilometres of trails, wetlands, wilderness, beaches, farmlands, creeks, golf courses, hills, marshes, viewpoints and forest to explore, all bursting with hundreds of species of flora and fauna. The main activity here is hiking. The whole park is criss-crossed with excellent trails. One of the, the Glen Eagles Vista trail, leads to an incredible viewpoint from where to see the Rouge River and Little Rouge Creek valleys. The white sand beaches of Rouge Beach Park are excellent for swimming, and you can actually kayak on Rouge River. For a full briefing of events, programmes, campings, hikes and activities at the park, call or visit the Rouge Valley Conservation Centre, or check out their website.

Rouge Valley Conservation Centre, Toronto Reviews
Had an amazing hiking experience today at the Rogue National Urban Park. The Park team was super aware of the surroundings, informative and friendly. We saw a red robin come down on a picnic table, and got to see a beautiful monarc following us along the trail. Highly recommend this park for anyone looking for a great hike, or run through nature. Side note, Park Bus is offering a free shuttle from downtown Toronto all summer, so for those of you in the city looking for an escape from the city.
Welcome To The Beare Wetlands I was on a group hiking tour today along the Orchard Trail out in the Twyn Rivers area and during the walk we stopped by the Beare Wetlands. I tried to take pictures of the snapping turtles, but I am Not even sure if I saw them or Not! I want to personally Thank the Toronto Region Conservation Authority for hosting a Very Nice Hike Today back on Sunday, August 5, 2018. Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Visitor Executive, Volunteer Writer For Google And Tripadvisor Websites /HPS
A not so challenging area to get around in terms of hiking, but it definitely doesn't take away from it's natural scenery! Lots of different areas to walk through and check out, and saw many people with their dogs & families which is always lovely to see!
easy and short hike within thr city. not bad at all.
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?
