The full trail length is under one kilometre, so it's a perfect one to take that friend who doesn't enjoy hiking.

Take your time admiring the chickadee birds hopping through the trees, and the fresh snowfall over a quiet lake.

There are multiple other trail options within a five minutes drive of the parking lot. If you enjoy the area, continue exploring with the Stony Swamp Trail, Jack Pine Trail and Lime Kiln Trail.
