Photos of rock formations and wood walkways are misleading. I only found one wooden walkway and it turned out to be a short dead end. The trails were by no means groomed and had at times a lot of tripping hazards (ruts, rocks etc..) I do not recommend anyone with a baby stroller unless it is one to adapt to rocky terrain. Do book 5 days in advance if you want in, but you won't get a refund if you back out, so make sure you check your weather and hope it's a good day. We booked two days due to rain in the forecast. Cellphone coverage is minimal, so don't rely on the AllTrails app to work properly - preprint a copy of the trails before you go. Plan on walking a fair distance for the rock formations if you are at the main entrance. Apparently there are more than one entrances to this park. There are some good views in the park but I won't be back any time soon

Magnificent place esp. during fall season. It takes 20-30 mins walk from parking to View deck. Better to go there afternoon.

Great hike with my kids age 6 and 9. I reserved online for the whole day which was about $18 for the car load. They have pit toilets at the entrance and along the purple trail. The northernmost part of the cliff top trail has the awesome viewing area. Very fun and a little bit challenging hike.

My wife is on a hiking kick- lucky me. She found this one on tiktok, and I guess so did all the other 200 cars.
The parking lot was packed, no service there to buy a day pass so be sure to get that ahead of time. Don't forget that step because the enforcement officers were there giving out tickets like the neighbours on halloween.

The famous picture spots are very misleading, don't let social media fool you. The park is stunning and its a great 5-6km hike, but a lot of the photo spots are dead ends, or smaller than they appear.

Dog friendly so that's a bonus.

The outdoor bathrooms smell foul, hopefully they can hire some more staff with all of those tickets they were handing out. Even saying that- make sure the wife and kids use it, otherwise they will be using leaves along the trails.

Lovely little park. Perfect for an afternoon stroll . You can also bring your 4 legged creature. But if you are going for the canyons, they are pretty hidden down a stair case. It's is about 500 m long. A bit dissappinted

Pros. Nice trails to hike with a viewing platform and you can bring your dog for a walk.
Went during the week so no massive influx of people jamming it up because of tik tok

Cons: not a place to bring a stroller, and quite a decent amount of horse poo right on the middle of smaller walking paths.

This is just about trails and should not be called a provincial park
There is no place to picnic , just the parking lot and trails
The gps address is wrong and you get lost
There was no park office , maps , proper bathrooms or picnic benches

Really nice walk for inexperienced hikers and young kids (we went with a 4 year old and a 7 week old (in a carrier). It's definitely not stroller friendly (at least not the route we took) but it's very walkable and quite scenic. We took the Carriage route trail from the parking lot, took those steep stairs up, took a short break, then did the "green" Clifftop trail north, saw the lookout and the rocky cliffs at the 2nd set of stairs, then took the "blue" Walter Tovell trail and Link trail back down, took a break at one of the ponds to snack and feed the baby, eventually returning to the Carriage trail to get back to the lot. Our 4 year old never got tired and loved the butterflies, caterpillars, dragonflies, moss and wild flowers along our route. We did get a day use permit online (free, but something they recommend due to the pandemic to limit capacity) but found there was no one on site checking for it (that we were aware of). We went on a Thursday mid-June and the weather was around 20 degrees C, which ended up being perfect. The trail was maybe 90% shade and yet there were very few bugs. We only noticed some black flies towards the end of our 20 minutes sitting near one of the ponds. We got there around noon, and the parking lot was barely half full, and found 50% more cars in the lot when we finished our hike around 3:30pm, though we didn't pass many people on the trails. Just here and there.. definitely not "crowded" and everyone was social distancing when passing. We even saw two people on horses, which our 4 year old loved seeing. There are 3 vault toilets at the parking lot, which had plenty of thin toilet paper, were a bit stinky (as expected for vault toilets), and had signs about using sanitizer but did not stock any (it's ok, I think everyone has their own in the car these days, right?). Didn't see any picnic tables anywhere, so don't plan to picnic here. Overall, I would recommend this park and may return next year.

I was at the park on the 6th of June. I disagree with the last comments, the parking staff were very friendly. They explained that there was limited parking spots and due to recent parking issues, the township made all side roads no parking. Due to the influx of non area residents ignoring the stay at home order, lots of GTA visitors accended on the park. Because cars weren't allowed to park on the shoulder and wait, they tried to make the wait to get in enjoyable by saying it was like a game of musical chairs, we had to keep moving on the roadway until spots became available.
I see now that you need to pre-register before attending.
I'll be going back!

The park is really awesome but the people working there, especially the people controlling the cars coming and going needs to know how to conduct with people, we were there yesterday and the people (parking security) behaved very badly towards us , when we ask them what’s the rule for waiting to get the parking, they told us you can play a musical chair but I will not let u in and I wish to not to let u in. That kind of behaviour is unacceptable and creates toxic environment. I hope the appropriate authorities take notice of the issue and resolve it.
