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

I almost die at this trail. In an early May’s night, I came to No.10 stick- that is, the bank of Bat lake. The lake is iced, so I don’t know the road is cross the lake or along the lake. I went cross the lake and finally lost the way. Luckily, I didn’t fall into ice lake. Thanks Load.

One of my favourite Ontario trails!

Have done this trail many times. It’s my favourite trail closest to Toronto! Hiked it yesterday, road is closed during the winter so add 2km each way to your hike. The sign at the trailhead says the trail is 10km but every time I have done it my devices have shown around 13km. In the snow yesterday it was about 16.5 km and took us 6 hours. Winter hiking is not my thing, but the trail is still fantastic! Highly recommend!

Nice little hike, not overly challenging even for children. I've done it many times over the years, including in the winter (icy on the cliff).

Hiked the trail in December with snowshoes (though they were not really needed). Nice variety of things to see from different forests, to ice formations, to scenic views.

Finished the loop with 5 hours. Beautiful view made the whole hiking full of exciting. Very wet and uneven surface, rain boots or waterproof boots could be more helpful.

We did this trail in the winter of 2017 (February) with our daughters 4 and 3, very scenic trail . Would definitely recommend hiking this loop in the winter weather

First half is best. Turn back at stop 5 for a good 2 hour hike. Took 4 hours to do the whole thing

We finished the trail in 4 hours including stopping for pictures and breaks. The view is stunning.

The most polular trail in Algonquin Park for viewing leaf color changes in Fall. Really worth it. Moderate for every age.

great educational trail on beaver with very nice views.

If you'd like an easy scenic lookout trail this is for you but other than that there's not too much to see. There are definitely other and more rewarding trails in Algonquin, although at a higher difficulty (e.g. centennial ridges, booth's rock, beaver pond, track & tower, etc.)

Took 4 hours to complete the loop from car park - including breaks along the way. The ridges are beautiful and can be seen throughout the trail. There are various types of terrain, wet and uneven surfaces which makes this hike more challenging but it's not difficult. Proper footwear (trail running shoes or hiking boots) helps a lot.

Really neat scenery and interesting history but a very simple trail. Virtually no elevation change and most of path is wide and clear.

Great trail for wildlife viewing.

The best trail on the highway 60 corridor in Algonquin. Beautiful vantage points overlooking the park.

Moderate to difficult hike. Took my husband and I 4 hours to complete. We went at a moderate pace but stopped a decent amount of times for long periods to take pictures and enjoy the views. We went the day after it rained so it was extremely muddy which I found made it more difficult. Lots of ups and downs but the views are well worth it!! the best views are towards the end of the loop.

Absolutely outstanding views!! Well worth it!
