Beautiful views and well maintained trail. We took the service road back down which is definitely the easier way to go as it is less steep.

Great biking trail! Scenic, well-groomed. Came out at Lawrencetown Beach - fantastic spot to stop and rest and then turn around and head back. Love it!

Wonderful trail with steep rugged sections and some narrow sections. fantastic view at the end.

Great hike! Beautiful views all the way, gorgeous fauna and lots of places to stop and let the dogs have some water. Loved the variation of trail from open flat rocks to short steep stints to deep forest and windy trails through lush plant life. Our dogs had no problem with this hike, just took it slow to allow for breaks and water. 3 hrs round trip with our breaks.

Great place to take the kids to get a little coverage from the sun on a hot day!

Nice easy hike but I only gave it 3 stars because 6k of 9k are on the rails to trails. Nice view of Mahone Bay when you get to the top of Castle Rock.

amazing views. there walk to the trail head along the beach and the Sea stones of not fun, but the elevated views from the point are gorgeous.

Quiet and peaceful, will def be back!

Nice cold pool to dip your feet in at the base of the pretty waterfall. Worth the short hike.

a great hike with an awesome view from the top. I'm very glad I went and will be heading up there again for sure!

Beautiful old growth forest....well worth a visit

Great hike on a well marked trail. Great views.

Unfortunately we saw no moose, but it was a great quiet beautiful spot early in the morning.

Fantastic scenery! No direct path so you get the opportunity to explore the rocks.

Amazing trail!! We had great weather with no rain but high humidity. Stayed at Refugees Cove and Seal Cove both had swimming beaches which was great as it was mid-July when we were on the trail. Highly recommend!

A nice shady easy trail to a waterfall. Gradual climb on path. Waterfall worth the walk in.

A steep hour long climb up to great views over the clyburn valley and ingonish area. A loop trail. The trail is a old access road less steep and easier in the knees but long and boring. A couple lake lookouts.

Hike up was challenging. Great views from the top. Bring snacks and water. My 11 year old son brought a book and stopped to read a chapter when we reached the top ( 4 km marker). Took the ATV trail back down.

Nice quick trail at end of day. We completed this one after a late dinner to work off my large fish and chip plate.

This is a nice pleasant, easy walk for all types of walkers! Some nice views of Halifax on route
Great for a leisurely ramble.

The view of the falls is very much worth the hike in! If you’re able to, get up to the second plateau to get a better view of the top of the falls (when you’re standing at the end of the trail facing the falls, turn around - there’s a steeper, root-ier climb that requires a bit more flexibility and strength than an “easy” hike). The flies were bad, but what can ya do! If there’s a walking stick offered at the beginning of the trail, use it and return it when you’re done (there were about 5 leaning against trees earlier this week).

Beautiful spot for an afternoon hike. I went when it was quite foggy, but the cliffs still provided amazing scenery. The main path is quite easy, but I went off the main path in some parts to walk up some of the rock. I would recommend waterproof hikers because there are a few spots on the main trail that can be quite muddy. Lots of rocky spots to stop and eat lunch with a view of the ocean. The trail isn’t marked so you many need gps to find the start of the trail.

Wonderful hike with so many changes from the path, to the board walk, and along the rocks. Wet ground today through the woods but worth it coming around to the beach. Very easy but you need good shoes for walking the rocks. Missed this hike last year when a man was returning up and said there were bears ahead and I might want to just walk to the beach.

Beautiful trail beautiful scenery! Rated as hard and it is but well worth it. Did the trail in 3 days but would probably opt in doing it in 4 next time to enjoy it more. Refugee cove and Seal cove campsites were perfect! Would recommend for sure!
