Loved this hike. Hiked it early morning after snowfall, was still well packed and easy to stay on the trail. Had numerous gorgeous lookouts. Will be back.

the view when you get to the lake is SOOO worth it.

we arrived with our dogs and the lady at the front desk said it was okay to bring them with us, just make sure to pick up the poo :)

Superbe paysage. Je l’ai fait avec mon fils de 10 ans donc difficile mais faisable avec en enfants

Hiked this today, to Fish Hawk Cliffs and it was as stated in previous reviews. Super easy until the side trail to the cliffs. In the summer, drier months is would probably be easy/moderate, but with all the water and mud it made the hike a bit longer since I had to take my time. Regardless, it's worth it ten fold. I drove in from Cleveland specifically for the hike and was not let down by any stretch of the imagination. No need for poles, just take your time in the slop. Will be back many more times.

Tougher than I thought it would be! Hiked this trail with my dog on November 1st. Small place to pull off on the side of the road at the base of the trail. There is a map at the base but no washrooms. Most of the ascent happens within the first kilometer, making you get the hardest part out of the way first! The ground was wet and slippery - definitely wear boots! We meant to take the trail clockwise but missed the first turn and ended up taking the scenic side of the hike first. This side of the hike is the toughest but the views are worth it!! The northern most part of the mountain, and the trail along the West side of the mountain did have snow cover, so be prepared. Overall the trail is well marked, however we did end up off course two or three times (although luckily we quickly realized it!). Overall with stops the hike took us 3 hours and 15 minutes. There are not many places you can bring your dog on a hike in Quebec, but if you're looking for a moderate mountain hike in the Mont Tremblant area (and want a decent leg workout!) I'd definitely recommend this trail!

Magnifiques vues avec rochers pour pique-nique au sommet. Randonnée courte et facile, avec quelques passages raides cependant. Très bien balisé et entretenu.

Low effort walk in the park (literally - the first few miles are such a gradual incline and the surroundings are beautiful) that have an awesome payout in the lookout. It’s an easy hike or a good recovery hike if you’re just wanting to be outside on a nice day!

Absolutely ridiculous. I was denied at the tail head by the most rude man I have ever encountered. I was with my service dog and he claimed absolutely no dogs on trail. He has no sympathy or understanding of how a service dog worked. They do not comply with state and federal laws concerning service dogs. I would recommend no one ever attempt this hike within this Nazi “reserve”.

We did this trial backwards. We went over a bridge from the gravel road to take us to the Beaver Meadow falls but before we reached that we hit a small cascade and walked over a gushing river. We continued down the Lower Lake Trail (believe that's what it's called).This was the trail that had the yellow markers and then decided to do the Lost Lookout trail (red markers) and then at some point it turned blue. This was a steep incline! We basically did a loop and ended up back at the Beaver Meadow falls. We basically had to the Lower Lake trail again (HAHA). By the time we reached the dam, we were pooped but nonetheless, hiked up to Indian Head. Please beware that it was muddy due to rain, WEAR BOOTS. No sneakers please. The leaves create a slippery situation, especially damp ones and oh MUD. After Indian head we did the walk in the park gravel road back which was much needed after our backwards start and detour. Either way, this is a beautiful trail and hike! Highly recommended however NOT BACKWARDS!

4.5 hours down and back. The walk from the parking lot to the trail alone takes about 35-40 minutes. Pace yourself at the beginning of the hike until you surpass the waterfalls and streams to your left on the way up. The hike gets vigorous but is very well marked. The scenic route is not much different than the easy route so don’t be afraid to go on the daring side to be closer to the water. The entire hike is filled with beautiful foliage and there is not a singular sight on the way up worth missing. Heading toward the top near the overlook, ensure you stop on the large rock ahead to take some pictures above the trees the views are much different from below. As you approach the overlook the payoff of the entire hike fills you with this sensation of joy. The view spectacular, absolutely awe inspiring and worthy of the 11.1 mile trip. 5 out of 5, will do again.

Hiked this on Saturday October 13, at the trailhead at 0730. Started out on Lake Road, Rainbow Falls, Indian Head, Fish hawk Cliffs and Gil Brook.

The trail was not crowded until we turned to go back via Gill Brook.

The overlook at Indian Head is amazing, colors were just past peak. Fish hawks cliffs was not crowded and somehow we had Rainbow Falls all to ourselves.

Excellent hike, this was my second time in the last 30 days. Can't say enough good about it. Not difficult - except, the night before there were heavy rains and the trail was covered in fresh leaves, since we were early there was a few spots by Fish Hawk Cliffs that we were unsure which way the trail went. Other than that - such a fun hike and awesome colors and waterfalls for miles.

Nice views but the trails are way too crowded.

Gotta say, nothing beats a view like this!

I loved it, 6 hrs hiking from Sutton Chalet (Maple av) foggy, muddy but worthy for the great points of view!! I’ve been there twice and be back for sure!!!

Definitely a perfect low effort high payoff hike. Hiked this on 10/9/18 and the foliage is definitely at its peak. Don't let the 11 mile length scare you, over half of this trail is a literal walk in the park. Once you actually get to the trailhead you follow the trail along the Gill Brook for some beautiful little waterfalls until you get to the last mile, where you gain enough elevation to call it a hike, but nothing you'll find daunting if you're accustomed to other hikes in the ADKs. Would hike this over and over again for the view from the summit because it is so SO easy! Took four and a half hours but me and my friend were doing quite a bit of stopping to identify some trees and check out the chickadees and kingfishers along the way, as well and enjoy the brook. We went out and back instead of looping and it measured 9.2 miles. Can’t recommend enough!

Super sentier avec un dénivelé intéressant, le premier 250 metres n'est pas conseillé avec des enfants de moins de 7-8 ans, très glissant

Belle randonnée, bon cardio à la monté et challenge à la descente.

Très joli. Peut être très achalandé (surtout à l'automne pendant les couleurs). Chiens en laisse autorisés!

Très belle randonnée!
On longe et traverse plusieurs ruisseaux. Plusieurs passages techniques avec rochers et racines.
Fortement recommandée.

Very nice, a bit hard for a « moderate » though!

Amazing view at Indian Head summit and the multiple water falls along ausable river!

La vue est superbe, mon fils a adoré.
Prochaine fois nous apporterons notre chien

This hike will spoil me for other hikes. The Gill Brook Trail in particular was just one spectacular waterfall after another, and the trail surface was soft and grippy for the most part. The view from Indian Head was stunning, as advertised... however, if you do this hike any time that’s not a hot summer day, I would recommend packing a windbreaker (both jacket and pants) because it really whips out there on that ledge; I wish I’d had one so I could have stayed up there longer and drink in the views in comfort. We never did get around to Rainbow Falls. The return trail gets narrow and not well blazed in places; we got the sense as we hiked up that everyone else was doing an out-and-back rather than a loop, since we didn’t see any of our fellow hikers after the summit. The whole thing took us 7 hours total. The Adirondacks are beyond compare. (I should mention that there had been quite a lot of rain the week before we went, so that may have made the waterfalls even more dramatic!)

What a great hike, I took the Gilbrook trail up to Indian head. The trail was fairly easy, it was a bit more work at the top, right after the ladders, but not that bad. The falls were spectacular and the views at the top were amazing. FYI, when they say don't-they mean it, am now the proud owner of a parking ticket!

Hands down the most beautiful hike I have ever down. The views are unreal

Hiked this trail last Sunday, so many things to see! Throughout the day we stumbled upon many waterfalls and bridges. Once you get to Indian Heads peak, breath taking! Awesome views! Great hike:)

I did this hike with a group on Saturday 9/22/2018. We got the Ausable Club around 9:30am and we took the last legal parking spot. Another car in our group had to drive up 1/4mile and park in the next parking lot. The NYS Conservation Officer was giving tickets and redirecting people away from the full lots.

The trail is follows the Ausable Club private road for 3 miles. The signage is clear. We walked to Rainbow falls, and thanks to the heavy rains the night before the falls were incredible! Our guide (ADK 46er) said this was the best he'd seen the falls in 20+ years. Just awesome. The spray was refreshing. We passed a few people on the tight pass going to/from the falls, and we stayed for a few minutes. We had a snack overlooking the lake and took in all the beauty. We headed back on the trail and followed signs to Indian head.

The trail to Indian Head was easy only steep towards the end. Lovely trail, lots of offshoots to other trails - easy to follow and understand. The view at Indian Head was breathtaking. Just perfect. Can't say enough about it. The overlook was crowded, but still amazing. Maybe 30+ people, we were all enjoying the same view of the wilderness in our own ways.

We followed signs to Gill Brook Trail and walked along the stream for miles - that was beautiful as well.

We had some slower hikers in our group, from start to finish it was 7 hours. We also saw tens of cars with tickets on them when we returned; all the cars with tickets were indeed parked around 'no parking at any time' signs.

Overall an excellent hike and I can't wait to hike it again!

Belle randonnée été comme hiver.

Escarpé avec de beaux points de vue.
