Power hiked the ascents and ran the flats/descents. Several amazing views packed into a relatively short trail. Trailhead sign isn't lying about the steep ascents/descents and slippery sections. Roughly ten stream crossings, some over boulders, but overall trail is easy to navigate. Worth the effort, one of the best trails in Ontario!

This epic trail offers many fishing opportunities along the Agawa River. Beware that the trail becomes a bit more rugged past burnt rock pool. Ive only done this trail as a overnight trip, but have heard of people making it a dayhike. I really enjoyed the beauty and challenge of hiking this trail.
Asking park staff about current trail conditions is probably a good idea.

I would say the trail is a bit higher rated than moderate, although the beginning sections are quite easy. Trail is awesome and one of my favourites I've backpacked. Constantly having the Agawa river beside you and the agawa falls at the end are worth the hike.

A steep, hard 270 metre climb on the first 1.5 kms leads to some awesome views of Agawa Bay and majestic Lake Superior. The views are some of the best on the east Superior shore. There are lots of rocky sections requiring attention to footwork. The trail has been tagged as ‘dog’ and ‘kid’ friendly… only if they are used to tough, mid distance hikes! Normal traffic flow is clockwise, leaving a slightly more gradual descent and flat last 2 km to end the hike. Have hiked this six times… worth it every time!

Amazing and picturesque in the fall season. The agawa canyon tour train is pretty lengthy (4 hrs) so please pack a lunch as they do not provide complimentary snacks or beverages during the train ride.

This trail is well worth the work involved. Be prepared to spend the day here! this hike is not for the faint of heart. You're looking at 6km up and then 6km down. If the trail is wet at all you will want to make some extra time to ensure safety. Hiking boots are highly suggested - I wouldn't recommend running shoes for this one.
I have been here both in the summer and in the fall- The photo is from the fall - well worth the wait :)
