Great trail! Really well packed down. I would consider this an easy trail and doable for everyone. Few icy spots on the trail that spikes would be a benefit but easy enough to do without.

Trail conditions are very good where you probably could go in good trail shoes after some recent snow . Pretty non technical with maybe one patch of ice I saw.

Lovely views but quite close to the highway for much of the route, so too much traffic noise for my liking.

Beautiful walk and views all along the walk basically, amazing and easy

Beautiful day for a snowshoe hike

Heads up! Winter season has begun in the park so this trail is not dog friendly until the spring. There are only two trails in the entire park that permit dogs during the winter. The winter and spring start dates are weather dependant and completely up to the park staff. Simply call ahead and check it out.

Did this trail a few days ago with spikes on but they weren’t really necessary. The trail was covered in snow but it wasn’t slippery - it’s a decent incline, took about an hour and a half at a pretty steady pace

Absolutely fucking solid

The trail followed the old rail line/Ganaraska Trail on the way out but we could not find the loop back. The map showed the return section of the loop following an active rail line. We chose to retrace our steps rather than walk along the tracks. It was a pretty walk on a flat level surface, after we left behind Fort Willow. There was one beautiful lookout over the valley below. Enjoyable walk on a beautiful November day.

This should not be a "loop". Its an out and back starting at George Johnston road going past historic fort willow. Or start at Fort Willow for a shorter hike. Nice vistas of the valleys around Minesing. The fort is a really great feature for any local history nerds. Our kids had a blast.

Beautiful area and 80% is a nice and easy walk around the lake. The only challenging part is getting up to the lookout however we did the trail backwards so this may be the reason why, since going up we didn't have the steps that were available on the other side. Some parts of the trail were iced over and slippery but with proper footwear we were fine. Gorgeous views, will definitely be back again soon
