Wonderful trail. Sections are suitable for wheelchairs and strollers and other sections more challenging. Feel like being way in the forest so close to town! Just gorgeous scenery.

Lovely, quiet forest by the creek, well maintained trails. Easy parking at the marked trailheads. Easy to moderate.

Beautiful scenery walking was fairly easy. Kids enjoyed the walk too. Amazing waterfall made the walk along so much more worthwhile.

There's a few places to park/enter on to the Holland creek loop. Basically you go up one side of the creek, cross a bridge, then down the other side. The 'Ladysmith' side is an easier walk and the trail is in better shape. This part...More

We did the "difficult" trail, then returned by the moderate one over two hours. Got a bit confused by the different paths leading to the Rotary lookout. Wish we'd brought water as there are steep inclines and declines. Wish there were more trail markings for...More

We happened on this trail at the Dogwood Drive access point while passing through the area on a sunny day in January. Starting along the south side of the creek, we followed the trail with the idea of getting to the waterfall which was said...More
