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 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.

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

Nice variation. A little muddy in places. Half of the trail is closed so had to walk through campground to road to get back to parking area. The bridge is closed but you are still able to get to parking lot.

The trail was really nice seen deer in 3 seperate spots. The ticks on the other hand were hungry I got bit twice and took 8 off the dog just crawling not latched on. Still good times

great trail lots of everything.
such a shame the spring flood downed so many trees

This trail was great! Took us about 1hr! Nice views of the river too! Be sure to pick up one of the trail brochures. It follows along with posts on the trail which teach you all about the forest development! Great for kids! Lots of potential poison ivy though so wear pants!

Great hike.

Great trail easy to get up and down all the trails. Rocks were a bit slippery but had rained which made them slicker.

I love this trail. It cuts the Arkon loop from 11km to 8 so it's a great option. I find the Arkon parts of the trail are more difficult than the Bufflehead part. It's fairly flat with just a few hills. There's a beautiful rocky spot overlooking a lake that I love to stop at.

This is my favourite hike to do at Frontenac. Particularly Tetsmine but adding Hemlock last fall was amazing. Hemlock had the best fall colours of any of my hikes last year. There's a spot where you see across the lake and you walk alongside it for a while and it was simply breathtaking with the beauty of fall.

Tetsmine is my favourite Frontenac trail because it has so much to see and its very balanced. There are several "wow" moments and they are evenly spread out. There are mines, waterfalls, a gorge, this beautiful meadow lined with mica bits (when the sun shines it looks like you are walking on golden pathways in a meadow - amazing!) when the water level is high there's even an infinity pond. This trail is awesome and its a challenging hike but we'll worth the effort and the extra drive to the far parking lot.

For a 3.5km trail this one is excellent! It provides many ups and downs for a slightly more challenging walk in the woods, some great lookout spots, and begins right at the park office. It's great to have a trail this beautiful that can be done in under an hour.

This one is quite spectacular in the fall. There are some amazing spots where you can watch the leaves fall like rain or walk through a rainbow of trees. so beautiful! It's not the most challenging of hikes - it's one of the easier Frontenac trails for this distance but still has difficult moments. It's great that if you don't have time for the full trail you can cut off 3km and do Bufflehead instead. Also lovely.

buggy,buggy,buggy.Nice trail.

Very simple trail has some good views and the boardwalk goes over a portion of the big. If you’re lucky you may see a moose.

This trail is incredible. Definitely more difficult than regional trails like Track and Tower, but offers plenty of spots for views and rest breaks, if needed. I would also advise that hiking this trail should be done during weekdays in fall, for optimal fall foliage and fewer hikers. It is definitely a great hike to do with friends, and will help keep you in shape.

Beautiful trail, especially for naturalist or bird watchers. A great variety of wetland, lakeshore to forested areas included.

Lots of mosquitos but that’s just part of the great outdoors!

Holy crap! If you wanna get in shape real quick do this trail a couple times! Great hike, fantastic views, a little muddy in spots. Make use of those streams, especially during the final quarter and dip your hands and cool your head. The billboard at the beginning of the trail says 6 hours, I did it in just over 4.5. Bring lots of water, bug dope, and snacks for energy. Hiking 101. When you reach the sign after tying the loop, you get a sudden burst of energy. Harness it! Keep a cold beer in a cooler in your vehicle and enjoy it when you return. It’ll be the best dam drink you ever had!

Loved this trail. Because of the climbs, a little more challenging than some of the other trails I've done in Algonquin. Have been waiting all winter for access to this trail to open up again so I can do it again:) great views.

The actual point loop trail is shorter than stated here. You can do a loop of another trail to make it longer if you want. It is a well marked trail that is easy to follow.

Second time doing the loop at the bottom end of the Western Highlands, accessed from Hwy60, and it was amazing. I happened to pick the perfect weekend (2nd weekend in May) which was perfect hiking temperature of around 14C in the day, but a but chilly at night (around 3C) but the best thing ... zero bugs! And I mean zero. Hit the window between not too cold, and before they hatched. My first time on this trail, last year, was incredibly wet and I didn't have the right boots, so felt like I was "portaging" around wash-outs on the trail all day long, and took me 2.5 days (2 camps) to get through. This time I had proper boots and it wasn't as wet - and did the loop in 9.8hrs hiking. Even so, I did spend a night a Maggie Lake which was amazing. I live in Toronto so I drive up and stay at a hote/motel in Huntsville the night before so as to get an early start. Great hike that's totally do-able in a weekend for Torontonians.

Tried this with my 9 year old son. It was a bit much for his first but we managed to get to Sheldon Lake where we spent one night and did some fishing. He caught 2 small bass. It was a lot busier then I thought but can’t wait to go again with my wife next time. I enjoyed the challenge.

Nice walk, but high traffic and some areas with mud. I did this trail with my 4-year old daughter without any problem.
