Really nice trail with diverse landscapes. The shades keeps it cool in the summer
Good trail to run!

Really good to walk where there is no auto traffic.

A great summer day for a hike. This is a moderate trail with numerous elevation changes. Bring bug spray. This is some of the nicest scenery in this section of the Bruce Trail.

great loop, very nicely maintained trails with boardwalks and gravel. nice views of the lake.

Very challenging trail. Even with using the GPS we got turned around a few times. However, the forest and stream are beautiful.

Challenging trail. The forest is constantly changing which is one of the delights of hiking in the woods. The Russ McConnell side trail is beautiful. We took a few of the bike trails back and those have some steep grades. Great hike!

This is primarily an easy to moderate trail. We were there in on long weekend and hardly saw any other hikers which was nice. It is quite beautiful with changing scenery from Deepwoods to rocks to open fields. I would recommend it if you have a wide variety of levels in your group.

Great trail. Some areas overgrown and force you to have to walk through thorn bushes and burrs. Otherwise the rest of the trail and terrain was what we expected. We will be back.

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.

Nice place to walk around or for biking ...beautiful view as well..not much crowed ...enough parking space

Our favourite trail on Central Ontario. Last week there was still ice in the caverns! Make sure tour find the keyhole side trail. So interesting. You won't be disappointed.

A lovely forested walk ending in an open field. A bit muddy in spots but overall excellent.

Love the walk around the lake.

Very lightly trafficked with tones of to explore.

What a great hike! Our 8 year old asked to go on a big walk for his birthday the end of May. We found this app and this hike. Caves were cool and the ground still frozen. Lots of bugs at the lookout but we didn't let that stop us. Also a great trail for the dogs. People are friendly too.

For someone new to hiking this trail route was a challenge but enjoyable. At my beginner pace it took 3:15hr including a lunch at the top and going off route about 1km to go through the caves etc. I got a bit turned around at the escarpment because the many other forks and paths aren’t in the map so pay close attention to your gps for guidance in this area. Beautiful views and a great afternoon !

Pleasant hike. Trilliums are out in full bloom.

recently ventured the full trail. beautiful scenery!

Great trail. Completed entire loop with my two children. Will be making this one of our regular hikes.

Great very lightly trafficked trail. Nice mix of flat, hills and rock areas to climb, also has multiple water crossings (great for the dogs). As others have said I highly recommend doing the hike counterclockwise, otherwise you will be hiking up quite a few inclines. Overall great day out, would do it again.

Just back from hiking this under the full moon light. Didn’t see much except all the stars and full moon. The view from the lookout is probably amazing during the day. LOL My two friends and I hiked the first half by moonlight and after awhile we used our flashlights. If anyone finds a red tac light flashlight near the end of the trail it is mine. We used multiple tac lights to view all the beautiful deer feeding in the fields on both sides of the trail near the end. What an experience!!

Great hike. We are fortunate to have access to trails like these!

Beautiful stream. Spring rainbow run’s on.

if you come in from the Collingwood side of 9th line the winter maintenance on this road stops About 2 km from the parking lot with a large snowbank blocking the road so you cant access the parking lot.

Easy walking ended up being 7.6km in length. The boardwalk makes it easy to do.

Some spots a little icy with the thaw but it's a nice hike. We went mid afternoon and only passed 2 other couples while doing the loop.

Perfect trail for a relaxing hike!

Amazing conditions for snow shoeing- we took a vertical route up an escapement and then connected with the Bruce trail down. No scenic points along the trail though and we had to take a short cut along the snowmobile route and almost got run over a couple of times. The Bruce trail was well marked but you could easily get lost. The parking lot is pretty big
