Was a nice trial to walk in the winter, looking forward to seeing it in the summer. Slightly icy on some paths but easy to follow and nice scenery. Was hard to find using the directions on this app. The entrance we found was on Mutual street in Pickering. Had a parking lot there that was fee. Also has a play ground and a soccer field. Will defiantly be back again.

Beautiful and demanding cross country trail in Algonquin Provincial park. The trail starts at the West Gate. There is plenty of parking space. There is a warming hut at a half distance. The trail is always nicely groomed by the provincial park staff. This is a trail not to be missed.

My Girl Guide group signed up for the Moonlight Snowshoe Hike. We all had a great time and enjoyed the guided hike complete with owl calls and coyote howls!

Great trail...there's a nice spot halfway thru to stop on a rock and enjoy the view...

Snow was pretty deep, but amazing non the less!

Trail started out nice on top of the escarpment , some nice views . As it got into the city the local riffraff was out in force damaging the trail and spray painting everything . A couple punks wanted to get into it with us , they ran off . The million dollar bridge over the QEW highway is interesting . This trail fell short of expectations . Be prepared on this one !!

Great winter hike!

One of my favourite places for a quick snowshoe. Beautiful scenery!

Good day out rocky trail with lots of lookout points modality traveled and well marked lots of parking at trail head

I really like the lookout point that can be accessed from this trail. It's pretty spectacular on a clear day, especially with fall colors.

Great trail in the spring when the trillium are out. I love the smell of the Red Pine on the forest trails in summer.

Always love Mono Cliffs! It was snowing and beautiful up at the Lookout off McCarsten Lake. Magic.

Very good

The trail itself is amazing! It’s gorgeous with lots of different elevations. There’s also an off-leash fenced dog park in the south end of the trail. Dogs must be on leash on the trail though. Unfortunately enforcement of this rule is minimal as everyone let’s their dogs off leash on the trail. We probably won’t be back again because our pup was attacked by two different dogs who were off leash on the trail. One lady claimed her dog “didn’t like dogs who were not neutered”. Our pup was 4 months at the time and isn’t scheduled for a neutering until 1 year. Nevertheless, how could you allow your dog to roam free off leash when you KNOW your dog may potentially be a threat to other dogs, dog owners and walkers? Definitely such a negligent act. Wouldn’t trust having our pup on the trail again. Even though we kept him on leash, it’s hard to control other dogs and the actions of other owners.

I've gone here so many times and it always brings me peace. I love the views on top of the big rocks, the picnic area is great for gatherings and there's a boat launch/beach area that we always buzz around in. Love it. One of my favourites and so close to home!

Great walk and nature area

I Have been here dozens of times. A great place for a relatively short hike that covers different terrains. Take a small Ziploc bag of bird feed and feed the birds right out of your hand. There are a few places to sit down as well.

Good spot, lots of parking, will travel there in the summer as well
