I arrived around 10am on a cold but sunny Saturday in January and the hike was wonderful. I only saw two other people the entire time I was there and they were just heading in as I was heading out. The waterfalls in the winter are amazing, and the lookout was quite nice as well.

Really enjoyed this trail, although it was a total challenge. We only managed to get out there in early November and we committed to hiking it in one day. We were able to complete it in just under 5 hours, but that was really pushing it because we were short on daylight. I wouldn't recommend a November hike because it was also very swampy. But the stony elevations and the views and the micro-environments were fantastic. Challenging but satisfying!

Did this trail on a 2 degree day in January. Beautiful hike. Challenging up and downhill and the stairs to the lookout are a good workout. Would love to back in the early fall. It took us 2:45. Though it wasn't icy we wore icers and were glad to have the extra traction on the well trodden snow.

Make sure your ready this trail is an ass kicker

Great trail, great views. lots of elevation and good camping. recommend going in the fall

This is the hike that I compare all others to...difficult but several summit views of glorious lakes and fields and forests! Bring lots of water and snacks...will take several hours to complete!

I like going early May or early sept never any problem with bugs Faya and Harness are by far the quietest and most peaceful spots

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.

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.

Pretty typical backcountry loop for central Ontario. Views are good but not spectacular. Terrain is fairly challenging if you're carrying several days of supplies but not that rewarding as it doesn't lead to any terribly special locations.

So beautiful and well groomed campsites! Very peaceful.

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.

Fantastic views and waterfall, however the trail was quite muddy and hilly making it a little harder then expected. Would definitely visit again.

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.
