I have two dogs and we didn’t see anyone on the trails the couple hours we were out. Trails were beautiful with great views of the lake and good biodiversity. Not a challenging hike but very enjoyable for the dogs and I. The park also has a specific off-leash dog park for those interested.

Challenging and rewarding. We did the hike with our two kids in backpacks. (3 years and 15 months). It was challenging at times but doable for sure. Saw lots of families and groups on the way there and back. Would recommend having one adult per child of hiking with kids. Going down was far more difficult than getting up. Views are paramount. Really great hike.

Enjoyed this hike. Pay attention to the white spray paint marks on the trees. If not for those u would get lost. Nice moderate ability trail. Beautiful lake views.

We are novice hikers in our late 20's, this trail is completely worth the 15k trek, but it is a long 15k, we found the 5k-10k point the most demanding, bring PLENTY of water as there are no fountains or such! also the part of this trail which takes you down to the beach and across (see map) is no longer, it deadends and you must return up the hill! the views when you hit the coast are something else, but also don't dismiss the forest!

Thought this was a great 45 minute trail walk for my husband, my shepherds, and me. We went in mid July. Seems like it is surrounded by wet lands so probably would be muddy in spring. There was one narrow spot close to a stagnant pond area so lots of mosquitoes at this part. We hurried through, but that was the only part of trail we didn't like. The rest had nice scenery with decent trail space under a canopy of trees. We went late morning on a hot Sunday and no one else was on the trail. Saw only 1 dog dropping left behind. There was some horse manure left on trail. Overall a nice trail.

Rented a canoe from Bell Lake. The employee at Killarney Kanoes gave us some directions and tips. The canoe ride was about 40 min. We started the walk on the trail. Very easy walk that was about an hour. And then we stated the climb. Some areas are tougher than others. We were the only ones at the peak today when we arrived. Spectacular views from the peak. The trek down was a bit tough. We ended our day with Fish and Chios in Killarney.

A large dog park with woodsy trails, some dogs of the larger dogs found it okay to manage smaller dogs were too tired to move because of the heat
the temperature reached 32° with humidity. :]- .

There is a big parking lot, washrooms, and there is some chairs to the right of some trees where the main trail starts and is accessible to the right with some tree roots on the left sticking up.

Easy trail even for kids. Great views

Love this trail! I use it for biking as well as walking my dog some really great look out points.

Beautiful quite trail, but easy to get lost, no helpful signs.

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!

This is a beautiful scenic trail! The view from the Peak is definitely worth seeing and a great place to stop and rest before turning back towards Tew’s Falls. The trail is not too challenging and offers some amazing scenery and views! Best to go mid week as it can get busy on the weekends!

I would not rate this trail as “moderate” and Lake of The Woods as “hard.” This trail’s elevations reserve it for more serious hikers. You can bring older children that are accustom to hiking with proper footwear. The views are remarkable and the traffic is light.

We did this hike the year the trail opened and were pleasantly surprised, we have returned several times since. It gives you a variety of views and was very easy to navigate. Our dog loved it and we appreciate how secluded it is.

Absolutely love the section that runs through Falls Reserve. I've hit it every year since we've been camping here. Incredibly fun zipping through on the bike. Some sections really keep you on your feet!
if you are hitting it on a bike, take the first drop cautiously!

Super fun hike! I would consider it hard for only people who don’t hike often but if you like to hike a lot it’s more moderate then hard! If you don’t want to do the whole hike and just want to see the ridges do the hike backwards, you get to the lookout a lot faster (about 15mins) then going all the way around

The map portrayed here is not accurate and the signage on the actual trail is some of the worst I've ever seen.

We climbed the path going straight up the hill until it ended and we were forced to go right or left. At this point there is no clear signage. We went right which meant that we did a loop with no views of the water. After returning from the hike, I found a map which showed that left would have meant we took another short straight trail (that would have required us to double back) presumably to the lookout over the water. There is a more accurate map of the "loop" on one of the Georgian Bay tourism sites.

The path until we started the loop was nice and wide. Very pleasant to walk on and completely shady in the forest. It could accommodate a jogging stroller.

However when we made the right turn the path started to get super narrow and wind through fields. Everything was still fairly okay until we reached the part of the trail where there was a large sign warning of poison ivy and there was literally poison ivy everywhere. Not one or two plants - but hundreds for a quite a length. The path turned rocky and winding. Definitely not good for a jogging stroller or small children.

I found it unpleasant even for an adult person as the path in the loop was very narrow (i.e. hitting the branches/leaves of maple trees on either side of you) in several places which just made it uncomfortable. And again signage was none existant - one map in the loop but it didn't even tell you where you were on the trail (and it showed several). The bugs weren't bad and there was cell phone reception, but the forest wasn't all that nice to look at . There are better trails.

Hazards - mosquitos, exposed tree roots on trails, and leave the toxic baneberries alone! Recommended especially in late May for wood warblers and forest flowers. Leave before 11 am to avoid the numerous off-lease dogs and their walkers. Despite these criticisms, it is a pleasant place for a nature stroll in summertime with opportunities to see turtles, frogs, birds. Pack your insect repellent!

Awesome little hike!!! My brother and his girfriend and my wife and I along with my 4 year old daughter hiked this trail with relative ease! Some challenging terrain and many bridges! We were also fortunate enough to see a beaver (I think), a deer, snakes and other woodland creatures. Highly recommend! They also have a few bathrooms for the little ones who forget to go before you leave!

This is an easy trail and beautiful. I so love meeting dogs on the trails but not happy with the fact so many dog owners in this area DO NOT pick up after there pets. Can't blame the dog. The beginning and end of trail is full of dog poo. It's one thing if the mess is off the trail but it's not fun when you have to watch where you walk on the trail. How enjoyable is that. I will not be walking this trail again.
Dog owners be respectful of others using this trail. And yes I have owned many dogs myself and I always pickup after them.

Beautiful scenery

Perfect for taking your dog on a short walk or a casual hike with friends

Not great for walking a dog because of the gravel but good for walking around Kingston

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.

I was just there a week ago, 2nd week of July, I took this trail and the mosquitos had a feast on me. Good trail!

Easy little trail, nice way to escape some of the crowds around the big falls!
