    Route Description for Mincinglake Valley Park Circular Walk

    Walking the Mincinglake Valley Park Circular Trail is certainly a fun and scenic way to spend an afternoon outdoors, but you should make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes for the best footing along the trail and in recreation areas. Additionally, portions of the trail can become quite muddy following a good rainfall, so water-resistant shoes may be necessary. There are also some stiles/gates to navigate along the trail.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will head to the southeast along the path and follow it into the forest, enjoying the charming woodland atmosphere until you arrive at the edge of a stream. Make your way over to the opposite side and continue along, following the path as it meanders out of the tree cover and turns to the north. Here, you will traverse a lovely stretch of meadow and enjoy pleasant views across the park, as you eventually loop around to the southwest on the return to the car park.
