These were all adults. They knew they were riding the wrong way, and were very apologetic. They mentioned something about missing a turnoff. Maybe they were looking for the kids.

Other than that, the trail was in great shape!
I was right behind you guys when that happened, on the fatbike when the other group came through backwards.

No worries, I think I know where the bad turn is based on your post here. Saw some confused riders later on crossing Kensington Road. Not sure if that connecting path has any signage to turn left - would be easy to pass it up and keep going for the large bridge. I haven't done that route in years.

Island lake trails were very perfect today. Nice riding with the cooler temps and trail is grippy and fast.
