Walk Y1547: This walk is rated 1A and is suitable for strollers and wheelchairs. Walkers may now choose between several options of routes.
The original out and back walk along the heavily shaded Brushy Creek Regional Trail is on cement, crushed granite and dirt paths, with turnaround points to give walkers a choice of 6k/10k/15k routes. The route stays on the Brushy Creek Regional Trail and in park areas along the creek.
The additional new routes consist of various connecting loops along the beautiful Brushy Creek Regional Trail on cement, crushed granite and dirt paths. The loops start in the parkland, go into residential areas, and then return to the parkland. Walkers have the option to walk 6k/12k/18/24k by combining the new loops in various ways. We have completed 3 of the loops. Pets are allowed on the walk.
