Very easy loop around the lake. Some great points for photos. This past weekend the trail condition was hard packed for majority of it with a few sections on the SouthEast side mucky. Excellent family walk.

Not sure why Wabasso Lake is included in the name of this hike since the route doesn't take you there. Nevertheless, this was an awesome hike. Lots of variety along the trail. Awesome views of the lakes and the valley. Nothing too strenuous, but still some terrain to keep things interesting. Did this May long weekend 2019. No snow on the trail; just a little muck when you first get started. Great hike to do with a dog.

A 2nd bathroom partway thru the trail would be a wonderful addition for parents or pregnate mom's

nice easy trail, good camping area lakeside.

This is a great moderate hike. Mostly shaded by trees with a couple open spots. It’s quite muddy at this time so I would make sure you are comfortable with going off the path into the bush to get around large mud puddles. The trail isn’t super clearly marked so I’d sure to not go too far from the path. There is a small lake at the end, a little bit swampy. The trail looks like it needs to be cleared as there are quite a few trees down but it’s manageable to jump over or walk around them. Overall a good hike though.

Really nice views and a very diverse trail with high lookout points, coastal beach and waterfalls. However, VERY muddy this time of year and very hard to navigate. Requires lots of climbing. This should not be labeled as "easy" !

A beautiful hike. Breathtaking waterfall views. Worth the hike

Short, easy hike on a wide gravel path the entire way. The bridge was beautiful and for sure the highlight, but the small rock lookouts and bench were a nice place to rest while taking in the rapids.

Relaxing trail to wander with some hills at the midway point. Otherwise, very easy to navigate and hike. This is a popular trail for dog owners, be warned many dogs are off leash in case you are hiking with young children. Look out for plenty of fungi, wildflowers and wildlife markings.

Easy! Fun for people with dogs or kids!

Done this hike twice, 5 yrs apart with both my boys when they were 6. It’s great fun, and a good sense of achievement, and with beautiful views! Just be careful if you join it on the south west side as it is very steep and rocky, if you stick to the trail, piece of cake! It’s about an hour all in if you don’t spend long at the lookout.

Beautiful!!!!!! Its an easy hike around, its a little muddy on one side of the loop, but makes it fun an adventurous to figure your way around it. There are many different views of the lake! We finished off canoeing and a bite to which made for a perfect day! Def get there early or you’ll have the crowds around you! Mid way through the loop there is an option to continue onto another trail which is an extra 6.4 km We got lucky because the lake just thawed out.

Off-leash dog park near the south end by Jerry Sulina Park. Lots of parking at the park as well. Can get busy but not predictable. I have been there on several sunny Saturdays when it has been almost empty and Wednesday afternoons when the parking lot was overflowing. Well maintained with benches and garbage cans along the way. No shade so best to bring/wear a hat. Be mindful that this area is home to bears and coyotes. The north end has “Silver Bridge”, famous as a jumping spot for kids of all ages - not necessarily safe at all but still a local tradition. This end also has a well-maintained parking lot with picnic tables and a length of water access great for kayak launching and just relaxing.

Clean, well-maintained, lots of trilliums. Many cyclists. Haven’t seen any dogs. A cool little playground along the trail.

this is a beautiful little trail that you can do alone or add the extension to the lake. I've done both multiple times. the lookout over the channel is a beautiful spot to have a lunch or break and watch water fowl, birds, etc. lots of info posts that you can listen or read along with in the Pinery APP. overall a great little trail!

Beautiful trails! will get good use of the Grand River pass for sure here.

Great and easy trail around the beautiful lakes. The start is a little bit muddy but it gets much better as you get to the lakes. Light traffic in the afternoon.

Great trail. The rapids at the top are really nice.

Great Trail!! Very busy on may long weekend but that's what you should expect on such a popular weekend to get outdoors. Lots of interesting sights to see along the way. With the constant change in scenery the trail goes by quick so take your time.

This is a great trail with plenty of quality places to camp. Some difficult to traverse places, but we only hiked about 5 km in and back before we had to call it a day. Make sure you bring a second set of socks in case your shoes get wet crossing the beaver-dam at the start of the trail.

It's a good trail

A perfect trail to hike with family! 2.5km around the loop in total. The waterfall was beautiful with lots of rocks to have a picnic lunch. Lots of white and red trilliums along the path.

I completed the whole loop, it was approximately 11km. The lakes are spectacular and the views from the valley are just wondrous. I saw chipmunks, squirrels, a grouse, ducks, and more.

It took a long time to walk this loop but it was pleasant and easy

This trail was not for the faint of heart or legs, climbs up steadily the whole way. we accidentally went left at the boulder field which had us scrambling with little to no grip. made it to pierce lake and tried for second, but we were definitely still in avalanche season, and the was up had been snowed over. stayed overnight on the lake, and headed back in the morning. Unfortunately, our car was badly vandalized, would recommend trying for a day hike and light pack;)
