It was so cold and icy we couldn’t get round very well. However, I’m better weather it’s a great place to visit. I’m going again to see the waterfall.

Extremely motivating running on well kept trails through the woods, over rivers and streams, up and down ladders (the longest of 178 stairs, Jacobs Ladder). You won’t be disappointed. Pets are welcome!

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!

Vague childhood memories brought me back to this park today, and I'll be back again soon. Many steep hills to climb and steep staiways, too, so not necessarily for the weak of heart or out of shape people, but great exercise, lots of gorgeous trails...More

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.
