We did not follow the trail, went down river to the first big bend then back up through the trees on a path we found. Very nice place to snowshoe

Short trail, beautiful views, up and down hill, rocky. Wear decent shoes. We saw many in flip flops which looked dangerous. Take your garbage with you please.

The trail was nicely challenging; while the lookout point itself was easily accessible, its mixed terrain went from a rocky descent to the basin to winding , uneven paths - watch out for bulging tree roots! The section across the bridge has lots of steep inclinations, making for a nice cardio session. For the most part the path was well indicated. There were lots of juicy, fat blueberries to be picked for a light snack as the lookout provided an incredible view of Onaping Falls, one of the biggest waterfall in Ontario. A trail to fall in love with.
