A little snow covered in places but still easy to follow.
Perfect for a sunrise winter hike

I use the trail lots because it's traffic free. It's very open so wind and sun can be a big factor. I have riden full 90 km and it is well worth it

Love this trail. I snowshoed around it today with my pups, it’s beautiful this time of year.

I am currently seeking brave-hearted courageous individuals who are up for snowshoeing the mantario trail

I'm going to start training January 1st doing smaller trails in and out of the city doing a few overnights to dial in my gear

must have a vehicle to park at the other Trailhead and all the gear knowledge and cajones to survive on the trail

this is not for the faint of heart serious inquiries only if this is something you are interested in send me an email and we can discuss more in person

This is a beautiful area and the falls are worth seeing, but the trail is quite difficult. Much of the trail is within trees so the only view is the bush. There is a campsite near the falls, and a high cliff with a good view of the river near the halfway point. The map says it’s a 22 km loop but my GPS recorded 30 km! Give yourself plenty of time! Be prepared for bears - lots of bear scat on the trail and we encountered a mother & cub.

Good winter trail

Nice trail for a winter walk. A few blue Jay's but not much else. Park has almost completed the new washrooms.

Beautiful, short hike. A little far from winnipeg but made a day of it and it was great. lots of beautiful scenery.

Amazing hike! Beautiful views, climbs and forested areas. Difficult but doable terrain (can be very slippery when wet!). My friend and I completed the hike in six hours (including an hour of photo taking and hanging out at the trail end). Only complaint is that it is poorly marked on the way out. We actually found a fellow hiker who had circled back by accident due to the poor markers. I would suggest using this app to keep track of your hike. But can't wait to do it again!

have taken the family and dogs many times. can be muddy and does get busy, but is always nice to go to for a quick getaway.

Such an impressive trail in Manitoba. Loved the rocky inclines that make you feel as if you're no longer in the prairies but the rockies!!

I love this trail. Period.

Great trail! Really challenging. Good snowshoe trail

Wondering about trail conditions in the winter? Is it heavily used by foot traffic, snowmobile or dogsled?

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.

Bead Lakes is a 4 km loop trail along Highway 10 in Riding Mountain and is a gorgeous place for a hike.

I hiked the trail in the fall which made for a beautiful setting with the changing colours of the leaves. The scenery was really pretty as the trail followed through the forest and passed by a few lakes. There were great views! The trail was moderately challenging with some inclines but it was more than manageable.

I spotted lots of fresh bear scat along the trail but didn't see any bears, although be aware that they are definitely in this area.

Fantastic hike and one of my new favourites in the park!

This past summer, I hiked to Bald Hill along the J.E.T. Trail in the North Escarpment and it was an absolutely gorgeous and scenic hike with the good amount of challenge involved. The trailhead is located a 45 minute drive along Highway 19 from the Wasagaming townsite. It is rated difficult and was definitely a workout for the legs.

The trail was beautiful and passed through forest and along the edge of the valley with gorgeous views of the escarpment along the way. There were lots of ups and downs, with some steeper inclines, but it was not quite as strenuous and difficult as I was expecting.

You will eventually arrive at a junction in the trail, with a sign. Someone has scratched Bald Hill on the sign with an arrow pointing straight ahead. Follow straight ahead for about 7 minutes and you will find yourself climbing onto the narrow and rocky ridge at the Bald Hill Lookout. Although it is not an official trail, don't let that deter you. The trail is easy to find and follow. The hill is literally bald - it is just rocks and nothing else, with very steep edges. The rocks are flat and slippery and the ridge is narrow, so be careful how close you get to the edge. The views of the surrounding hills, valleys and forests were absolutely stunning from the top of Bald Hill!

You hike back to the trailhead along the same path. It took me around 4 hours to complete the round trip hike and in total, it is around 11 km.

I would recommend this hike for those looking for scenic views and a good challenge. Wear proper hiking boots/shoes and long pants, as there is some poison ivy along some parts of the trail.

Whenever I visit Riding Mountain, I always hike the first section of the Kinosao Trail leading to Kinosao Lake and then come back to the parking lot along the Brule Trail.

The trail leads through the peaceful forest to Kinosao Lake. The trail is fairly easy and flat with only some minor up and downs. Once you reach the lake, you will see a lovely boardwalk section of the trail, which makes for some beautiful photos.

Kinosao Lake is a gem. In the early morning, the water is so calm and the atmosphere is so serene. You can sometimes hear loons. There is always a canoe laying under a tree at the edge of the water by the dock with paddles and life jackets underneath it, for anyone to take out onto the water. I always love photographing the lake from the dock and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere among nature. There are also great views of the lake (and photo opportunities) right after crossing the boardwalk heading back on the trail, with a bench positioned along the water.

Would highly recommend hiking this trail, especially in the early morning when you will experience the tranquility at the lake. Gorgeous place!

The Brule Trail is a favourite of mine in Riding Mountain and is always a go-to hike when I am in the park.

The trail is a loop leading through the peaceful forest to Kinosao Lake. The trail is fairly easy and flat with no elevation gain or uphill sections. Right before reaching the lake, you cross a lovely boardwalk section of the trail, which makes for some beautiful photos.

The Falcon Creek Self-Guiding Trail is a short 2.2 km loop trail, just a short drive from Falcon Lake townsite off the Trans Canada Highway, next to the Falcon Beach Ranch.

The trail follows over the rocky landscape and through forested areas. There was one very large rock positioned along the trail that was deposited there by glaciers back in the day, from the receding ice, which was interesting to see. You can also spot lots of quartz veins in the rocks along the trail.

This trail was scenic and had great views and beautiful nature along the way. Would recommend!

The Top of the World trail had fantastic views and was really rewarding, although it took some effort to figure out where the trail was and how to get there.

The beginning of the trail starts from the parking lot of the Falcon Trails Resort, across from the main office building, about a 15-20 minute drive from the Falcon Lake townsite. You have to follow the High Lake Trail and follow the signs for the High Lake Eco Cabins and it eventually meets up with the Top of the World loop, where there is a sign indicating this trail. It was a little difficult to find and confusing at times and the signage could definitely be better. The trail map on this site is wrong and the top loop is not part of this trail, just the bottom loop.

The loop was along the rocky and forested landscape typical of the Whiteshell. The viewpoint overlooking Falcon Lake and the surrounding forest was gorgeous and there was a nice bench for sitting and admiring the views there. This was definitely the highlight of the trail. It was a short and scenic trail that was moderately challenging.

The trail and views were worth the initial confusion and effort in finding the right path. Would highly recommend this one!

A great hike with a lot of different terrain that keeps you interested all the way. We had cold north winds...snowy sections...warmer sunny stretches...we had all 4 seasons. . Awesome day!

Quick easy relaxing walk.

A nice quick loop. Take the shorter/detour until freeze up. The back part of the bog has ankle deep water. You will need waterproof shoes and trekking poles to go off the trail and around the water.

It was an easy hike...not many spots to stop and enjoy a view.

Short and scenic. The falls weren’t really falls, more a trickling stream, but the hike itself is nice.
