Very easy trail with beautiful scenary. Paths are wide open with some small inclines /declines.

Only raiting this a one because we couldn't do it, but I wanted to write a trail condition update for those who may be attempting it. We tried this on October 18, 2018. The creek that runs along the tracks has flooded due to a beaver damn and all of the recent snow/rain. We tried going through the water barefoot, but it was extremely cold and rutted. We couldn't tell how deep and we were a afraid of rolling an ankle in a whole and falling in. As it was, the water was already halfway up our shins and ice cold. We tried three different routes as we hate "quitting hikes" but we just couldn't find a way around the water and my feet were aching from the cold. If there has been a lot of rain/snow, check the conditions before attempting this one. We ended up going to McGillvray Falls instead.

The entire perimeter of the loop is 1km so it helps you to track your distance. Beautiful park, paved path. Just a great scenic place for a walk anytime of the day in any season!

A nice, easy hike to Sturgeon Falls. Lots of different mushrooms grow here in the late summer and you can sometimes see otters playing in the water.

For a longer hike, turn right after crossing the suspension bridge to go to Pine Point Rapids (8.7 km one way). Not much in terms of views as it's essentially a wide swath of access road through the forest, but you're likely to have it all to yourself. @jesiannoutdoors

One of my favourites. I don’t agree with the rating of Easy as the trail is in a state of disarray, with many fallen trees over the very overgrown, poorly marked path. Navigating the bog without getting feet wet is always a highlight, as well as scaling the short granite walls. It’s no Hunt Lake, but if you don’t have the time for that trail, don’t pass up on the Bear.

Always wanted to go here - finally did today. Drove most of the way in and hiked the final 3 kms. to the lookout point. We had a fire and a picnic while enjoying the spectacular view. It's worth the trip. (We did see a bear on the trail.)
I'd go here again and park further away.

we rode bikes along the trail. our 4 yr old had to walk the steep bits but otherwise a nice riding trail

We could only get about half way to the lake, route is impassible by smaller ATVs. Really wet swampy muskeg made it impossible for us.

I did this trail walking was not very exciting if you were looking for a trail to bike or the jog in and out I would recommend this trail.

Took this trail from the bridge sign in the Nutimik lake campground area to Sturgeon Falls. Fairly easy trail - we had 7 kids with us including one in a backpack carrier and everyone managed the hike no problem. Lots of nice lookout points especially the bridge and the rocks by the falls.

There's a bog right near the start that got the feet a little bit wet but they were mostly dry by the trails end. There's a nice little lookout at the end with a firepit that's a great place to have a lunch and fish from. Lost the trail at the end on the way back and had to hike through the bog.

I love Legion Park. Heyes ChildCare Centre is having a bike-a-thon fundraiser at the park now, perfect trails for beginner bikers with plenty of space for celebration after the kids are done their 5km ride. Thank you Swan River for maintaining beautiful parks!

To answer Kevin Esau's comments we have uploaded a recording for the alternative route to access the trail from the east, therefore avoiding the river crossing. Please review the recording "Pike's Peak Alternative Access" and details for more 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.

Great place for a short hike. It's very beautiful as well.

Tried the hike on May 31, 2018. Parked at the fork of the snowmobile traile/maintenance trail. Northbound was closed due to a closed road sign stating bridge was out. Westbound was closed due to fire risk sign.
Tried walking to river. Once I got there, bridge was out and no way to cross the river. Did not try to bush wack to a possible crossing so not sure if there are options. So until river goes down or bridge is replaced I would not recommend

Love this trail. Have to cross river on foot...wear good shoes and take a walking stick. Make noise to let bears know you are in their neighbourhood.

Great little lake. Few muddy spots on the trail. Best accessed when the road is dry.

Trail has some muddy spots but the lake is a short walk in. Easy to access by snowmobile in the winter.

Great Fishing destination! The lake is only a short distance away, but it can be hard to access due to the trail conditions

Home to small-sized perch. Access is tricky in the summer as the trail is a natural path through the forest and there are no markers of any kind. Best visited in the winter months as there is a short trail adjacent to West Watjask Lake.

One of the Best Views in Manitoba!

This road can be a little rough with some rocks and a few large potholes. But if users stay off it when it’s wet the road is pretty good. I’ve got my minivan in there in the fall with no problems. Great walleye lake when their biting!
