Went for a walk. There's two sides to this conservation area - either side of the creek. There is some altitude gain on the west side. The trails are relatively flat and wide.

This park has some great trails and brings back memories of when my kids were young and we hiked there regularly. The campground is long gone but new trails are being created now to connect the park with neighbouring communities.

Great place to go with kids or by yourself ! Trails are great and wide enough to feel comfortable. Good place to walk or run. Kids love this place, lots to see from frogs to ducks as well as the occasional deer.
