Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I love this trail. Any time of year, it's great. In the winter, I love the trees with the frost; in the fall, I love the trees with their yellow leaves.

Frame Lake is in the town and there is a good trail all the way around. Go for a loop to see the city.

This trail around the Frame lake is quite lovely and retain a bit of the wild at the same time that connects with the city. You can walk the whole trail in an afternoon with a relax pace (3hr-4hr) Starting from the Legislative Assembly Building there is a a parking lot that doesn't look too much like an entrance for the trail but is there. I really like the views and the change on the landscape.

On the Frame Lake Trail you’ll come across the Fireweed Studio. The studio is open on a Saturday and during the Tuesday market when I visited. The gallery has a range of locally made arts and crafts and they are exceptionally well priced. Apparently this is because many of the items are made by people as a hobby rather than purely for profit. This isn’t to say the resulting articles are not good, far from it, but it does mean you can buy a unique piece of local art or craft without a hefty price tag. It’s just a shame they aren’t open more frequently. Choosing what you like the most will be the hardest part.

Just completed the Frame Lake trail. It was awesome but harder than you would think. Parts of the trail are paved and very easy. Other parts are more challenging and I would advise people with mobility issues not to complete the entire trail.

What makes the trail so special is that it provides great view of the city, yet it is so quiet, you do not realize that you are surrounded by a city of 20,000 people.

I was amazed at how some joggers were running through the very difficult terrain.

The city hall visitors center provided a great map and information on the trail.

With some light jogging in certain sections we did the loop in 1hr. and 15 minutes. I highly recommend this walk as it is absolutely a spectacular trail to take in some incredible scenery and tranquillity. The hike is very technical in nature and may not be ideal for all as you ascend the rocky Canadian Shield for about 70% of the trail. Watch your step and watch for the pole markers indicating the trail direction. Hike is fine for adventurous families as well.

I actually went around this last summer during a trip in August. The bike trail is quite good for about half of the distance - until you hit the legislative assembly (if you go around counter-clockwise, as I did). After that, it is pretty rugged, and I had to carry my bike as much as I rode it the rest of the way. Still, it was a nice trip and I enjoyed the views and the exercise.

The trail is more like a walk in the park, but you have to climb a rock here and there, so it's not wheelchair/ stroller accessible. The city views aren't so special from the trail (at least not in the fall season), so don't waste your time and go outside the city for real trails and beautiful views.

A very scenic diverse trail that you can start and go part way and exit onto a road or go all the way around. Some sections are like a wide paved trail, to dirt track to scrambling along solid rock and muddy sections.
