Amazing views off of both bridges 1 and 2. Sad we couldn’t do 3 through 6. Youngest’s legs were done after a couple of other sites.

Fantastic view that changes as you go around the summit. A bit strenuous, especially during the last stretch

A bit more then 12 k but the view is nice at the end

There is a high amount of foot traffic. Arrive early to find parking, and prepare yourself for lots of stairs. All culminates to a lovely view.

The town offers simple parks and gardens by the waterfront through which you can wander with ice cream, gelato, cinnamon buns, or doughnuts. Grab a seat after the hike and enjoy a beer and pizza, or rent a kayak for a few hours if you're up for more activities.

Worth a trip.

This was my first hike. The majority of it was great as a beginner, but the last 2km or so were quite the incline. Well defined paths and some great scenery.

Lots of steep trekking and high climbs, but totally worth it! Just when you think you summit the hill, it brings you down and then higher yet again.

on Heart Creek Trail

Did this with my 3 and 5 year old, who are taller than most. They loved it- it was just challenging enough for them to make it feel like an “adventure.” A beautiful hike for all ages. There’s an extra bit of the trail at the end that leads up to the top of the cliff. This was too much for the kids but easy for adults. Worth the view!

I just completed the entire trail from the east trailhead at Tulemèen to the west end at Hope Bc. It's entire length is 74 km. This map only has the first half. I don't know anyone who does it as an out and back. You require a drop at one end and a pickup at the other. This trail has some great climbs, great scenery and countless mosquitos. Photo ops with wildlife of all kinds from black, brown grizzly bears to deer, moose and a variety of birds

Beautiful quite trail, but easy to get lost, no helpful signs.

Very promising trail. Good views from up top.

First thing - views at the top and along the ridge are stunning!

Second thing - the incline is significant. I wouldn't try this hike again simply because the trail is not maintained, easy to lose and can be dangerous for inexperienced hikers on the way down - even more so if the ground is dry. Becomes a loose gravel and stone scramble almost all the way down.

This is not a trail you should attempt without good boots and poles.

If you do, however make the ridge, the view is breath-taking!

There is not a more beautiful hike in Ontario, in my opinion. It is for more experienced hikers and would absolutely rate this one has hard, as opposed to moderate considering some of the elevations and hiking requisite knowledge required. Trip preparation and proper gear is essential, but absolutely worth it!

This is a beautiful scenic trail! The view from the Peak is definitely worth seeing and a great place to stop and rest before turning back towards Tew’s Falls. The trail is not too challenging and offers some amazing scenery and views! Best to go mid week as it can get busy on the weekends!

I would not rate this trail as “moderate” and Lake of The Woods as “hard.” This trail’s elevations reserve it for more serious hikers. You can bring older children that are accustom to hiking with proper footwear. The views are remarkable and the traffic is light.

We did this hike the year the trail opened and were pleasantly surprised, we have returned several times since. It gives you a variety of views and was very easy to navigate. Our dog loved it and we appreciate how secluded it is.

easy to get to, not too crowded, mamy trails to choose from

Breathtaking views at the end of the trail. It has 12 stop for total 6km.From stop 1 after crossing the highway 40 to stop 3 the trail has mild to moderate slope. After that really flat trail offering nice view of meadows with wild flower beds surrounding. Its great experience for kids, we hiked with 8 and 12 years old kids. They enjoyed snow balling at one stop where we found remnants of snow dump.Make a stop at the small water fall to feel the water.

Summer or winter a good hike !

Nice little trail. Very busy by the water on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Fun with lots of challenging ropes and descents. Lake felt great after!

Solid hike with beautiful views at the top of Mount Assiniboine and Kananaskis. Took us 5 hours with a solid lunch break at the top. Trail was well marked and easy to follow. Didn’t need poles or flip flops at all, but bug spray was super necessary.

One of my favourite places to go! Brought up a group of people on Friday night and stayed until Sunday. Lots of fish caught and released as there is now a 0 limit harvest, whereas it used to be a limit of 2 cutthroat trout.

The hike up is pretty steep, lots of up hill but as long as you take your time it is a decent hike. Lots of people on the trail early morning and midday.

We camped between two of the lakes, and despite it raining lightly one of the nights we stayed, the weather was warm and sunny with a little bit of cloud later in the day.

Highly recommend spending a night or two and adventuring around or fishing to spend time in the great outdoors!

Love light and respect

Yup yyyyytt

Good place with good views

Lots of people, trail is very dry, the switchbacks were overall manageable until I reached a couple of very narrow points on the path.

Pretty good hike, took us about 6.5 hours up and down.

J’adore cette Rando pour le côté historique
