This classic Rouge Valley hike features excellent examples of rare Carolinian ecosystems while traversing a 200-year-old former logging route where pine trees were cut and floated down the river, eventually bound for ship building yards in Europe. The trail leads from the Glen Rouge Campground over the “hog’s back”, or ridge, north to Twyn Rivers Drive where it meets up with the Orchard and Vista trails. Parks Canada’s guided walks meet next to the Glen Rouge Campground parking lot at the trailhead.

Pets are welcome in the park, but we want them, and park wildlife to be safe. Our domestic animals can be exposed to dangers from wildlife and the elements just like we can, and they may also pose a danger to the park’s protected wildlife, farmland and cultural heritage. For the safety of your pet and to help protect the park, please observe the following rules:
Leash up – For the safety of your pet and others, all pets must be under physical control whenever you are visiting the park.
Stoop and scoop – Pet waste can have adverse effects on park wildlife, farmland and cultural heritage. Please clean up after your pet and dispose of waste in proper garbage receptacles.
Be mindful – We want everyone to feel safe and respected while they visit Rouge National Urban Park. Other visitors and local wildlife may not feel comfortable around your pet. Please keep your domestic animals away from other visitors and wildlife you may encounter in the park.
