      Rose Valley Regional Park has an extensive trail network that is marked by usage rather than signage. It is recommended for the moderately fit as there are some steep climbs and one should be aware there are some sudden steep drop-offs. Hikers should be aware that this is not a looped trail, so they will need to retrace their steps. Hikers will be rewarded with panoramic views, wildlife sightings and volcanic cliffs marked by caves that are believed to have been created by large air bubbles in the lava. There are plateaus of grassland, wooded areas and steep cliffs. For mountain bikers, there are no stunts in the regional park, but the ride rewards you with amazing views.

      CAUTION: These trails are shared by hikers and mountain bikers. Take care to avoid contaminating the Rose Valley Reservoir – it is an important source of public water supply.

      Features: volcanic cliffs, caves, flora & fauna, grassland plateau, panoramic views, Goldies Pond, man-made reservoir, bird watching, wildlife
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
