Easy hiking on well groomed trails with beautiful scenery right in the city. We were there in October when the leaves were changing. Gorgeous. Loved it!

Went for a hike during a visit back home to Nova Scotia. The main waterfall train was closed during the visit so had to use a different trail.

The Victoria Park is a lovely place to walk. It is so pretty and a great way to enjoy the area. We were very impressed with the beauty and there were a lot of people there as well.

We hiked to the falls. Beautiful view. The trail was pretty easy and well marked. Had several opportunities for good photo-ops. We climbed Jacob's Ladder (300+ steps) and were rewarded with breathtaking views.

We had a great walk here. The park is big(!) and well maintained. There a couple waterfalls to walk to as well as other trails where you can just bask in the quiet of nature. It really is a wonderful place.

You can walk to the waterfall and back to the parking lot with a stroller, but to make a circuit you have to do stairs.
