Freshly fallen snow, giant pines, and gorgeous water. I felt safe walking through with my krampons but it may have been a bit slick with some swampy and snowy areas had we not had the proper gear.

I wanted to love this trail. We hiked it in early November, and it may as well have been early spring. There was mud and mucky stuff all the way around, and we probably had to veer around these very wet areas at least 50 times in the course of the hike. Also there were at least six trees down across the path. If the path were way drier, and clearer, it would have been a great. Beautiful views, but not worth it when it’s this wet.

Hiked this trail with my dog on October 29. Entire hike took about 45 minutes. Overall short but scenic - little boardwalks, lookouts, and varying paths make the trail really interesting to travel and photograph. The only tricky parts of the trail were the very beginning, where the trail was steep and muddy (watch your step!), and the last ten minutes, where the trail was almost completely muddy puddles that could not be avoided. If you're going to do this hike, a pair of waterproof boots is a must! I would recommend this trail if you want a short hike with lots to see.

This one works you! I did this solo on the first snow fall of the season in late October making for some very slippery sections. I did it in about 4 hours but it took everything out of me. In my opinion it has the best views in the park, so totally worth the effort.

Did the trail in the snow and it was a beautiful trail! Definitely one of the harder ones I've done so far. I would recommend this trail to anybody who is able to finish the whole 10km loop.

Awesome hike at the end of fall season!

Took 3.5 hours with a few food stops. Trail was not too hard, a little wet in areas (it rained the day before). The blue trail markers sometimes are hard to follow so we had to back track 2 times. The views were nice, mostly mountain top and lakes. I recommend arriving early to get a good parking spot, and wearing good hiking shoes.

The view when you reach to the top is breathtaking. Must have a good shoes. Definitely coming back next fall early in the morning when sunrise strikes

Good walk. boards can be a bit slick when they are wet so watch that. nice view of the bogs. easy.

Went today and the colors were fantastic... Went clockwise and the views were nicer on the east side as there are more trees and no lake.
Took us about 4h but we had plenty of little stops. Would say hike is moderate as there is not a lot elevation gain.

Gorgeous views. A bit challenging but totally worth it. Took about 3 hours with minimum stops just to enjoy the view.

One of my favourite Trails... Excellent for Scenery and Wildlife in all Seasons... Medium intensity...

Great trail! Not too difficult because there is little incline. For the most part the trail is along the edge of the lakes. Beautiful lakes with many chances for viewing wildlife. We saw a few herons, ravens, spruce grouse and an otter. I suggest wearing some shoes suitable for mud! We took about 6 hours to complete, including a lot of time to stop and look for wildlife.

Another great trail. Bit steep at times but well worth the climb to the lookout.
Don't forget to show your parking pass while hiking. The park wardens are always on the lookout.

This one is a great hike Year round! Short one but well worth it. Check out the artificial tree at the trail head.
Great for children as well. Lots to look at.

I do enjoy this trail. However I find it a little boring in sections. About 4 hours at moderate speed. Lovely vistas about 1/2 way.
Good footwear is an absolute must in this trail as the rocks can be slippery. Do take plenty of water as well!
Know your limitations on this one as it can be lengthy.

Nice easy hike!

Great winter trail, especially if you're looking for something flat and relatively quick. Did the entire thing with my dog in March in half an hour.

Ok. Beautiful forest scenery, but misnamed, as there isn’t much in the way of rapids. Or whisky ;) More mosquitos than a typical wooded hike.

Great trail for a day hike with beautiful scenery.
must have: good hiking boots, comfortable backpack, plenty of water and food. My hiking boots were good but not THAT good, near the end of the 10km my feet were a little tender.
I definitely recommend this trail as a Medium in difficulty.

This trail has beautiful look out spots.
The terrain is extremely difficult, lots of long, steep inclines. Bring lots of water and snacks. It took us a little over 4 hours to complete with few stops.

Awesome trail. I went with my parents (64years old) and it took us 6 hours to complete. The trail was slippy because of dramatic rainfall and we did stop and rest a lot.
My mom regretted the trail, I would do it again. Lovely views, it had all I wished for!
