Today is Sunday, June 17, 2018. I arrived at the lookout point about a half hour ago and am embracing the breeze and the escape from the bugs! For all those hiking his today, your welcome for clearing the millions of cobwebs! lol. The hike is generally fairly tame, but the ascent to the lookout point is quite the chore! Especially the never ending staircase! All in all a good hike, will depart the lookout in just a few minutes for the last half.

Amazing views, well marked trail + booklets (to borrow or keep for $0.50. In French or English), and not difficult (non-hikers could do this!)

Went here at beginning of May 2018
we used the west trails as recommended.... awesome, just awesome... I would recommend this to anyone.... but I want it all to myself.
I have decent tires but no serious obstacles, west is for moderate off-road.
Eat I may try next.

Beautiful look outs, after a moderate hike.

An easy and flat trail (read path) used by walkers, bikers and runners. Not exactly exciting but will get your run off the road.

Great trail! We did the loop starting from Brantford Conservation. It took us just over an hour. Our bikes are just 7 speeds from Canadian tire.

Great hike, amazing views, what’s not to like!!

Really liked this for a shorter hike.

More of biking trail than hiking but it was okay.

Riding the trail from the north, the proper trail ends just east of Kennedy Road. Some work has begun on extending the trail and some of it is marginally rideable. However, just before Tomken Rd, the trail is impassable. It would be nice to have some signage to indicate when the trail is expected to be completed.

on The Crack

Age 37 male, 135lbs. Did this with my 35-year-old gf. I found it really easy. If this is labelled 'hard', it kind of makes the 'hard' designation useless, since there are countless trails I've done that are much, much, much more challenging. It's still a nice little hike... simple walk on a path through the woods for the first half, then some nice going up rocks until one gets to the top. Nice views up there of the surrounding area. We went on a nice sunny weekday in mid-June, before school finished for the year. There were people certainly, but not too busy, starting at 11am. Didn't see any wildlife. Bugs were annoying and got some bites despite multiple OFF sprayings, but not horrible. If we had put on our nets and all that, we probably would not have been bitten at all.

it's a nice short walk and passes by a playground.

Usually do this every September for the Terry Fox 10KM event.

Good place in the area with little touch of nature.

Its a long stroll only but very nice if you like the beach.

Gets too crowded in the summer, it has lost the feel of being on a nice quiet wildness hike, too many people using it now

Dull, too busy, it's just a walk along a road and sometimes you get smells from nearby industry.

on Buck Lake Loop

Snowshoeing in March was super. Great trail and very quiet. Small stream crossing at southern point but stepping stones make an easy crossing. Due to snow levels had to park some distance from start Buck lake and made for a much longer walk.

Great area for snowshoeing. Trails are clearly marked. Easy parking. Able to combine several trails to make a longer walk. Nice wooded area and not too busy when we went.

Not much in the way of rapids but a nice little walk. Some areas are muddy and need to step carefully. Wooded area and can be best with bugs.

on Logging Museum Trail

Such a nice history story along this trail. Saw lots of wildlife on the lake. Good accessibility, clear path without too much undulation. Loved the old machinery and buildings.

Nice hike and reasonably well marked by blue paint on rocks. Some places need to step carefully due to rocks and low cut shrub roots etc. Took a tumble on one and make me think they should trim these to ankle height.

Short walk up a series of steps to a lookout tower. Good for scenic view or panoramic photographs of the valley. Probably good for birds watching as well.

Without question one of my favourite trails. Some fun scrambling rewarded with incredible views!

It was a great hike. Great trails and beautiful scenery! A must for all ages.

Great trail! Gorgeous views, beautiful pines, and a sweet little waterfall!

nice place.. a good hike. waterfall makes it worth the while. definitely bring bug spray.

Pretty quick and easy hike/nature walk, but with an absolutely awesome view of the lake and swamp below, and drastic rocks hitting out.
Fantastic hike, and definitely worth the hour-ish drive from Ottawa!
Looks as if there’s lots of other great trails near it that I’ll definitely be checking out ASAP too!
