Great trail, even in the rain. Fantastic views of autumn colours and plenty of quirky mushrooms to see in the forest.

This trail has it all. It has An amazing lookout (in our opinion one of the best in Algonquin). The way up is not so terrible, but it is a good workout so you need to be in relatively good shape (for example no major knee problems..). The way back is really nice and smooth, in a path along the lake. It took us less than two hours. Definitely recommend it!! We did track and tower afterwards and in comparison we liked booth's rock better.

Booth's Rock Trail is a 5.1 km loop trail that visits two lakes and a spectacular lookout, returning via an abandoned railway. You will find ruins of Booth Rock, the railway he built. You will need to be prepared to do some climbing, but its not a hard job to do

In order to update my hike I had to use a previously recorded trail by somebody to sync up. The overview states primarily used for snowshoeing. I find this to be an odd statement as I've hiked this trail many times since a child with my parents in the summer and there has always been many cars in the parking lot.

Booth's Rock is a trail in Algonquin Park that starts at Rock Lake. The trail has a definite path that has both rock, and root throughout. Both are excellent natural staircases to use as you climb to the peaks for a great look at the surroundings.
