If you just want to go for a nice watershed hike, this is the place in Kingston to go. The trails are all easy; they're marked, groomed, and have little or no elevation change. Many of them are low-lying so you'll want to plan for some occasional mud if it has rained recently. In winter, the trails are groomed for... More

A beautiful spot to feed little birds and get away from the city. Different trails to walk along, bring the whole family. Can't wait to go back.

I have lived in Kingston for nearly 20 years and with work and travels, I never really discovered this place until yesterday. My friend and I went Kayaking. We've done this before but in Quebec, this time it was to be close to home. The price was average, $15 ea for two hours. The Kayak itself was acceptable for the... More

Excellent cross-country ski trails in the winter (when we get enough snow!), skating on the reservoir, hiking in the summer...a wonderful place close to the city. We always make the trip out for Maple Madness in March as well for pancakes and maple syrup.

This one-way trail links two road arteries accessing the pre-amalgamation city from the west (Front Rd AKA King St, and Bath Road). The creek itself is in the former Kingston Township between the Cataraqui Golf and Country Club and the Collins Bay Prison Farm lands. A rail line parallels the trail, serving the Investa (formerly DuPont "Nylon") plant, and formerly... More

Went there for the first time last fall and very much enjoyed the walk. Took our dog with us and prob walk 6 or 7 km. The trails are very well indicated and you have many choices of distance to walk. Very good place for the kids and family for picnic as well.

Every trail is a little different, every season a time of discovery! Spring brings many treasures to the forests and meadows. Listen for the rubberband orchestra of the bobolinks and the frogs on percussion. Watch for the bright red epaulets of the red wing blackbirds and don't forget to check out the orchard trail!

This a lovely, open approach to getting out into nature. For the past 3 years my family and I have gone to Maple Madness and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The wagon ride back into the woods for fresh pancakes and syrup is all part of the fun. There are so many trails for self guided hiking, walking/running, skiing, and just... More

Love going there for the maple bush experience. Favourite part however, is walking along the paths and hand feeding birds.
