Easy hike for those looking to get into the activity. More of a nature walk than anything else. Very crowded on the weekends and during peak season.

Awesome simple little trail. Pretty busy, but still lots of wild life and spectacular views.

Awesome trail, the last 400ish meters is a bit of a scramble in the snow. Would definitely recommend crampons and/or poles for near the peak as it gets icy under foot. I was able to do with out them but it was pretty sketchy at some points.

Great trail, weather was wet and it was pretty busy. Great history with beautiful views, very family friendly hike!!

My favorite place to go for a run!! With the tree coverage it's cool to run in the summer or in the rain. The trails are amazing with different options to go.

Great hike with very rewarding views! Boot spikes and/or poles highly recommended with the recent snow, otherwise it’ll be slow going up and a little TOO quick going down. We went most of the way up with just boots, but the way down was a little dicey, and required some running to manage momentum. We were the 3rd group up in the morning after fresh snow and the groups ahead of us packed it down a bit, but it was only really deep snow the first couple hundred meters. The rest we did without gaiters and were totally fine. It’s definitely an uphill trudge, so take stock of your fitness level and allow time accordingly, but overall it was spectacular views and extremely rewarding on the nice calm, sunny day!

As of 1 Dec the trail was snow covered past Alder Flats. You can get to the shelter with micro spikes but mountaineering crampons are required to summit. Carry an ice axe, all the scrambly bits on the trail are frozen solid.

This is a hike with a number of great features. The lake is artificial due to Nova Scotia Power's hydro activity. The falls are pretty really nice. The top of the falls have a trail leading up to it. To get to the bottom, expect almost a scrable through the mature forest. Then there is the old concrete culvert under the dam. Best echo I've ever heard!

Found this trail on a recommendation by a few people. Was such an amazing trail! Not too challenging....some uphill but not too bad. Plenty of picturesque spots to stop and enjoy. So many waterfalls along the way.

This trail is part of the Porcupine Ski Runners trail network and is open to cross country skiers only during the winter months. A trail use fee is required or a club membership which can be purchased at the clubhouse. Use at your own risk.

Stick to the main trail. There are many little trails that take you all over the place, which is fine depending on what you are going for. Otherwise great hike. Moderately challenging to get to the Cross. Incredible views at the top!!!!

I have been hiking here weekly for 20 years. There is option at PAY for 2 hour pass for $3.00, the $11.50 is all day. This is a Provincial Park after all & you have to pay entry all all Provincial Parks! Walk my dog , always quiet. Some trails on west side of park always wet, as natural springs & marsh land all around, hence the name Springwater PP (for all the natural springs throughout park). There are trail maps on posts at each trail intersection and trail head (last parking lot- lot 5). Take photo of map if required. Another idea is I purchase a yearly pass through Ontario Parks, giving me access to any Provincial Park in Ontario daily & no fee. It was $175.00 last year.

The first 2/3 is about 2” of snow and little ice and the last bit to the saddle before the full peak is deeper snow but definitely manageable! We ran into great temps and little wind and even a little bit of a cloud inversion in the morning. We only ran into 4 groups of people later in the day.
