Nice views, not recommended for older persons and little kids as it is very rocky

Easy trail even for kids. Great views

There is not a more beautiful hike in Ontario, in my opinion. It is for more experienced hikers and would absolutely rate this one has hard, as opposed to moderate considering some of the elevations and hiking requisite knowledge required. Trip preparation and proper gear is essential, but absolutely worth it!

Some steep parts, some parts of the trail are poorly marked. Bugs were horrible.
Beautiful trail though. So many areas with amazing scenery. Wonderful views of the bog and lakes. Lots of variety of terrain, but easy to get though.

Killarney mountain lodge is constructing more buildings and has destroyed access to this trail.
You kind of have to go on the edge of a construction site to get to the start. This makes it hard to get to, and it shows that it hasn’t been walked in a while. I suggest trying something else. We had to turn around after 5 min. Bad bugs and get very over grown. A shame really.

So much fun, lots of rocky terrain for climbing. My 8 yr old LOVED it!!!

Too buggy

Amazing!

With a friend, hiked the loop clockwise. 5 nights/6 days. Our first big hike. Was tough. Many steep climbs. Rewarding views. Wonderful campsites. Saw very few people along west part and top. More traffic along east side..Amazing hike! Not sure about rating as moderate. When compared to moderate sections of other trails (eg Bruce Trail), I think this Killarney Hike may be difficult.

Beautiful look outs, after a moderate hike.

Great hike with beautiful views. Lots of variety and somewhat challenging in spots with steep climbs and descents, though short, and very rocky and many tree roots to watch out for. I would only consider this hike easy in comparison to The Crack which I hiked yesterday, otherwise, I would give it a moderate.

This trail is Amazing. I hiked this trail solo in August 2014. I recommend going counter clockwise by yourself, it was nice to talk to one or two people a day and people coming clockwise often said I was the first person they had seen all trip. I heard rumors of potentially getting lost on the ridges, but I found the rock cairns easy to see, as long as you’re observant. My favorite campsite was H35. Saw two bears and plenty of deer. A moose visited my campsite in the morning at H32. I’m returning to the trail this summer!!

Mountains in Ontario! Ive walked this trail twice and although tough the views and pristine waters are unparalleled. Must do!

Very pretty little hike, good beginner trail if you don't mind a little elevation. Lots of sections were covered in ice but as long as you don't mind going around and getting creative its fun.

Attempted in Jan 2018. Covered 18km in the first day. Beautiful winter scenery and just the right amount of trail difficulty for someone used to trekking and climbing in the Rockies. Only regret was not taking enough photos!

Encountered an unexpected severe drop in temperatures. Forecast had called for -18C as the overnight low, but a high pressure system blew away the anticipated snow clouds and dropped temps to below -30C. We were not ready for that extreme level of cold and bailed the next day. Can’t wait to gear up and try this out again someday, but maybe not in January.

Very nice trail! Takes about an hour to do and there's a nice old car in the woods about 10mins into the hike. Pretty cool to see:) Beautiful views especially if you explore abit off track !

Fantastic. Great views.

Hiked solo counterclockwise in 3 nights. Wouldn't recommend this approach, but (obviously) doable. Many spots where I had to search for trail markings, particularly in areas where trees are less dense, but I always found the trail (wouldn't recommend hiking at night, for this reason). All in all, beautiful views and some amazing camp sites.

Beautiful views !

Beautiful challenging trail. Did it solo in 8 days which was perfect. All the camping sites were good and mostly isolated. Met few hikers on trail except for the day hike spots (Silver Creek and the Carck). A must do for all backpacking amateurs!

Excellent trail! Hiked this one in July solo. Encountered very few other hikers other than in the day-hiking/canoe-in spots. Not recommended for beginners.

One of the best trails on the east coast. Phenomenal views.

If you want to experience a classic Canadian shield trail I would do this one. The geology of the rocks is very interesting and the view of Georgian Bay when you get to the end of the trail is serene. The terrain can be a bit uneven so I would rate the trail as moderate for young children although my 6-year old daughter was able to manage. Bring snacks and water so you can linger and enjoy the views of the Bay.
