This is a great trail, it is short so it doesn’t require to much time commitment. It is beautiful but can be wet and muddy.

Nice short trail. Perfect for the end of a day hike with the dogs. Trail is not well marked but if you look at the map by the parking lot you should be fine.

ESKER Trail. Much more quiet and prettier then Aspen. Took 1:22hr and was very enjoyable with so many butterflies! Very sunny trail passing a couple horse gated areas near the end. My dog enjoyed it too. I would hike this one again (first time I say that for a BH hike 1:3). Enjoy!

Hiked this trail with kids and a dog. Nice bushy trail - lots of berries along the way and a bench at the half way point. Beautiful lakeshore trek on the way back. It took our group just under 2 hours total at an easy pace.

This is probably my favourite trail in this park. It has a lot of ups and downs and some scenic overlooks as well. I have started stashing my bike in the bushes close to the washroom near the top of the trail and hiking up and biking down on the road. An hour up and ten minutes down.

This was my first hike ever. I went by myself and it was a great experience. I did a little bit of the Spirit Sands trail, it was a great challenge. Luckily it was an overcast day because I don’t know if I would’ve survived if I did it full sun. After a bit of the sand trail I went to do the Devils Punchbowl... it was breathtaking. The fact that something like this exists in Manitoba blows my mind! I’m definitely doing it again and bringing everyone I know.

lovely hike, very enjoyable.

Very clearly marked trail and is about 70% shaded. You will walk by a few camp sites, parking lots and washrooms. A few sections feel a bit more secluded. A pleasant walk with the confort of many people around.

Very nice trail once we found it. Need better signage. Lots of signs for bikers. No one on the trail so it was quiet. Found Wild raspberries & bog irises.

Cool trail system. Only had Time for the small 1st trail which took about 25min. *warning* after the short walk my dog had about 12 ticks on her and I even found a few on my ankles. Tuck your pants into your socks and make sure you check your pet after this hike!

Great little trail for a light walk or a hike the kids could do with you. Great nature watching at the pond between 7:30-8:30 pm!

Great trail to ride to either Birds Hill Park or to Lockport from the parking lot @ Hall Rd & Garven Ave. Head out in the morning before the sun gets hot and the wind picks up. Remember this is a multi use trail so be aware of people and their dogs, both on & off leash.

This ain’t your average walk in the park backcountry expedition. If you’re thinking pristine and well maintained trail with adequate markers (both distance and direction), this trail ain’t for you. Want to put your head down and just walk? Think again. This trail will eat you up, literally, and spit you out the other end. Would not recommend for first time backpackers, experienced only if you’re hoping to do the whole trail in a matter of days.

The Mantario trail is the epitomy of Manitoba. It’s got thick brush, misquotos and horseflies, rock slabs, and beautiful backcountry lakes. If you complete the entire trail, the distance is much more than 60kms, over three days I clocked about 80kms of hiking (excluding walking around at campsites). The terrain can be rugged and the bugs relentless, bring your bug nets and spray. Expect your feet to get soaked, given the really muddy and boggy portions which are the worst between Marion Lake and Ritchey Lake. The trail can be very difficult to follow at times, given that you’ll be bush wacking for over 50% of the time while taking bush to the face, and following the numerous detours to get around the fallen trees/brush.

Bring your bear spray as encounters are not unusual. You can definitely conquer this trail in 3 days, but make sure you are prepared to pay the physical consequences after putting your body through some of the most difficult terrain Manitoba/Ontario has to offer.

Very clear and easy trail. No part was challenging. Great shade, views of the river. Picnic tables and fire pits near the parking lot is a bonus for next time. I recommend planning a picnic/bbq and bring the fam! Ps: we did the other hikes too in the same afternoon!

Good trail. Wide gravel/rock trail. Minimal mud holes (unfortunately). some flooded spots due to beavers, but easily passible

You can park right up into the entrance of the trail. You will need a provincial park pass to park here (or anywhere else in the Whiteshell) while you are here!

It is not "near Benito"...it is on Thunderhill. This is a glitch by the All Trails site not the people who uploaded the info.

It was a nice scenic walk. I wouldn’t consider it a hike. I would consider this easy compared to others I have done.

Perfect for biking or in-line skating as it’s paved the whole way. Nice walk.

Scenic, challenging and worth the effort. If you’re looking for a place to test your trail running skills and stamina, this is the right choice. Muddy holes, rocky ridges to climb up and over, and enough roots and boulders that it’s a constant challenge not to roll an ankle.

Great little gem of a trail in Nopiming Provincial Park. The trail head is just 11km north of Black Lake campground. It’s a moderate hike with some big steps required to get up or down the rock faces. The 360 degree views from the top are awesome! There are three picnic tables at the top so bring lunch. This is the perfect hike for kids and dogs.

Sandy quad trail. Occasional shady stretches; mixed red pine, Scott pine, trembling aspen forest with low growth underneath. We didn’t meet anyone else on the trail, heard a quad nearby. Saw some bear tracks. Probably more fun on a quad or dirt bike.

Clean paths, nice view and easy for biking.

Anyone going July 7/8ish weekend? Just for a car key swap yo get back to entry...?

Great trail with beautiful view of West Hawk lake. The trail is hard. Pleasant views make it worth.

Needs tree clearly on the path many downed trees which made it more of a scramble then a hike in some areas. Also be prepared to walk through long grass as there is no packed ground, wood chips, or gravel. Over all the hiking trail just needed some TLC but a lot of fun! Very hilly so be prepared to be going downhill for half of it and uphill for the other half. Wife and I finished it in 51mins.

Great trail. Clearly marked.

Nice hike but LOTS of poison ivy. Be prepared.
