My favorite Trail to hike year round. The views of Old Woman make you feel like you’re in Hawaïi or along PCH. Hiking with 35# toddler on your back makes it a good workout. Pretty moderate terrain :)

Lovely! Easy enough for a 2 and 4 year old.

A beautiful hike with breathtaking views and waterfalls at every turn.

Very surreal place ...a must visit , waster clear and warm . Tons of marking near the beach ..had fun

This is probably in my top 5 best hikes I’ve ever done. I think the distance probably turns many people away but I promise the views make it worth it. The cliffs up there need to be seen to believe. I saw many pictures before going on the trek but nothing prepares you for the real deal in person. The 1-2 kms is almost straight ascent in my opinion wasn’t bad but I do a lot of hiking and an fairly endured.
If you’re gonna do the trek, start early. This allows you time to spend up top as well as detour over to Tee Harbour which is gorgeous (you’ll see signs for it along the way) and get back to your vehicle in time the dinner. It took me and my husband 6 hours or so to complete this hike.

The best kept secret of Algoma. Usually I see no one on the trail and the
trail makes no attempt to be direct and the late fall and winter, slippery patches....a beautiful trail with outstanding views.....at foam lake you can camp as long as you get a backcountry permit....then summit in the morning....one of my favorite trails....feel the burn

Nice trail , easier compared to the other trails in the area .. Have picnic tables at the beginning of the trail, for a quick snack

Great trail. Some parts allows for an easy option and a moderate option. Moderate option provided lots of different elevations and terrains. Decent look out views, buildings in the distance we're visible from top of cliffs

Good leisure hike

First note, this is NOT an easy trail. Anyone with knee or ankle issues may have a difficult time over the long sections with softball to volleyball sized round rocks covering the trail. I would rate this as moderately difficult as other trail sites do. While the lake is mentioned in the description, the high views are the best points to list. The scenery is gorgeous. The walk through the woods was a great break from driving. Mushroom enthusiasts will have a lot to look at.

Short hike but it was absolutely beautiful. Noticed that further down the right side of the trail it’s closed off by a big fence which is a let down.

Beautiful day and place to take in all the beauty of nature!!

the first part of the trail (kabeyun trail) was relatively flat, lots of rocks & mud, we regret not bringing our bikes, it would of made the first part much quicker. we took the extra 1km to the "sea lion rock formation" an easy little hike, worth it. there is a bike rack at the Talus Lake trail where you turn off the Kabeyun trail. the talus trail was nice, some inclines! the 3km up to the Head of the Sleeping Giant trail was a fairly challenging 3km, quite steep. the extra 2km to "the chimney lookout" are so worth it, and youre up there anyways might as well do it! those 2km's are easy. such beautiful panoramic views of Lake Superior, Thunder Bay & the park. we stayed at the top for half an hour. the entire 24km + 1km for the rock formation took us 5:30hours. The views are amazing, no pictures do it justice!

Hiked around the park and this was my favourite view. Very steep for 1.8 km or 1 km depending on what map/sign you look at. Signage isnt great.

This is a beautiful trail and is marked fairly well. The beginning/end hour are quite easy and a little boring but the terrain gets more difficult as you go on. I did this as an overnight camping trip and really enjoyed it. There are spots along the way you can stop to swim in and the view from the top of the waterfall is gorgeous. You could do it as a one day hike if you left early, however I think it would be more enjoyable to take your time and spend the night.

We biked part of this trail to the trailhead for the Top of the Giant trail. It was my first time ever mountain biking. Definitely an adventure.

We did a combination mountain biking and hiking. Definitely recommend biking the first part of the trail to the base of the giant. They do have bike racks at the base. The hike up was brutal and quite the workout. The top of the giant was gorgeous and the view made it worth it. One of the hardest hikes I’ve done.

Started on the South Outlier trail then to the Bruce Trail, the Cliff-Top, and then the Lookout. South Outlier starts off with pretty steep inclines, but is a good workout!! Did 9K yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed this hike!!

Excellent trail ... lots of up and down but still something a beginner can do. We did the tetsmine loop in under 4 hours.

A fairly easy trail, ridiculously easy to follow up to the knees. A gorgeous and very rewarding view make it well worth it. The trail is less easy to follow if you continue around it so keep your eyes open. Watch for wildlife and enjoy the lakes and trees that engulf you.

What a great hike! It's a super easy trek and well worth the 30 minute drive from Niagara. The historic buildings are adorable, the waterfalls absolutely gorgeous, and the grounds very well kept. This is easily one of my favorite day hikes. We found a secret alcove behind Upper Falls for some great photos, too!

Camping in a large group was great! All the feel of backwoods camping with the amenities of a big park. Perfect spot! Hiking trails were awesome! Wouldn’t recommend in slippery conditions. Proper footwear is always a must here too.

Bring flashlights for spelunking the caves!!

Wide, easy trail with some small hills to keep things interesting. Beautiful crystal waters in the bay at the end.

A steeper climb than Top of the Giant, but equally impressive views! Well marked trail with some fun scrambling to be had if you want to explore the lookout.

Pretty challenging hike due to length and steepness once you start the climb from the base of the giant. I recommend biking the first portion between the parking lot start point and the base of the giant trail (there are bike racks). The final view point are unbelievable and totally worth the trek!

We did this trail on the Labour Day holiday Monday and only encountered 2 couples which was great. The trail is 15km, not 13.6. It took us almost 6 hours at a decent pace with a few snack breaks. The first part of the trail near the lake was very pretty and breezy with lots of rocks to sun yourself on if you want to. The trail was well-marked and the terrain was not too difficult. There was a lot of up and down but nothing too slippery or treacherous. There were hardly any bugs to speak of. It was a great day!

awesome hike and beautiful lookout!!

A large portion of this loop is road walking. I wish this app included details like this. We would have double backed if we had known.
