I am grateful to the commenter above who said that this trail is boring and you have to watch your feet at all times. It made me want to do this trail and I'm so glad I did! Incredible home with lots of puddle jumping and rock hopping with a fantastic payout at the end (or halfway marker of you do the loop). Beautiful and will definitely be back!

one of the best hikes I've ever done. Beautiful.

We took a wrong turn and ended up on the ski hill which was super cool. Took a wrong turn but it turned out great. A major hill at the beginning but really fun:)

Did the hike on a nice fall day - Beautiful trail. Steep ground but good footing.

Easy trail, steep in places but nothing you can’t do in regular running shoes. Gorgeous view at the top- go down to the second look out around the corner from the first- well worth it!

Did this in the pouring rain. The steep uphill ascent felt like hell in the rain, but the payoff was worth.

Definitely a “ moderate “ trail as the first half of it is straight up hill! The view was just amazing especially this time of the year being fall. Went on a clear day and you can see the Confederation Bridge and PEI. This is the reason we hike!

Gorgeous views! About 4km exclusively uphill at the start with varying terrain (gravel, tree roots, rocks, stairs). Beautiful fall colors, streams and views along the way. Can be fairly wet along some parts but I didn't have an issue with sneakers. The various lookout points are astounding, particularly the very top. Absolutely breathtaking and also moderately difficult in terms of physical activity. Had about 105 "flights of stairs" on my Garmin watch and a heart rate up to 190. Took about 2 hours. Highly recommend!

This is one of my favourite trails in Nova Scotia. A good challenge, nice features, beautiful views. It is near Wolfville, so pick up a light lunch or enjoy a great dinner.

Easy, short hike but it’s seeing these amazing rock formations is what you’re there for!

Awesome views. Took us about 3hrs to hike it! It is dog friendly but the trails can be steep and they are skinny trails.

hiked it today really enjoyed the scenery, the only thing I would say is wear good hiking boots as there ate alot of rooots which makes it easy to twist an ankle

Great short hike with rewarding elevation changes, ocean views, a magical forest, and a few secret paths that you should explore. it is not EASY.. the trail requires rugged shoes, is very uneven in places, and the stones on the beach can be very hard to walk along, watch your step.

beautiful view And easy

Steep. Nice view on the top.
Cape Breton Red Chair here!

Pretty awesome east coast hike. A group of us did it in 2 night and 3 days. We stayed at refugee cove the first night, and Carey Brook Cabin the second night. The cabins are very nice compared to a campsite, but comes at a cost (Id recommend them if you are struggling to do distance, or if its cold). There are plenty of rivers to get fresh water from so just bring a water filter. The last part of the trail on the north side past eatonville road is rather dull as it is a walk in a forest with moderate elevation gain. In our group of 4, on the last day I left from Carey Brook Cabin and hiked back to the car at the HQ (20.7KM), while the other 3 waited for me on Eatonville road for a ride. Eatonville road is a gravel road, would recommend a SUV, Jeep, or a truck to drive back there our 2010 corolla did fine though.

Most of the trail is inside the forest, but some times popes out to rock beaches, and once to an open field area. There are some cliff jumping spots near the middle of the trail (10', 40' and probably ~60') jumps, but you have to time the tide just right so you dont get sucked out into the bay. During late August the mosquitos were fairly bad. There were plenty of people on the trail, and there is no sense of danger. Just follow Leave No Trace procedures and you should be fine.

Really nice hike. Great views at the top. Like others we took the service road down and actually ran into a bear on the trail. Gave it some space and it was fine. Just be careful if you do the hike in the early morning or closer to the evening.

Rocky beach, gorgeous cliff views, alternating terrain, inuksuks, mossy forests, a perfect day hike.

Super pretty and fun hike! Did it in 2 days, 3 nights (Seal Cove and Refugee Cove). Hike to refugee cove was beautiful and challenging. Between the two camp sites was a lot more flat than day 1, a long but steady hike. Seal cove to the trailhead is a bit boring, you follow along an old road. Found out later if you ask, there is a shuttle you can pay for and skip the less scenic part of the hike.

The waterfall and the bridge at the end are lovely but the hike there and back can be a little boring. You have to watch your feet pretty much all the time to avoid tripping.

Loved this trail! My fav since moving out east - there’s a swing bridge, overlooking a beautiful waterfall! Great day trip, great hike - will def be back!

Great hike, with amazing views for relatively little effort. Cobble beach to start, check tides. Follow loop clockwise for best impact. Build an inuksuk, swim at a secluded beach.

Overall it was an amazing hike. We did the loop backwards. Extremely rewarding. Amazing views. Loads of looks offs.

After reading reviews and talking to folks we expected the hike to be far more challenging.
We would recommend this trail as a pre cursor to the Fundy foot path (friends we did the loop with us and said the footpath is far more challenging)

great trail with some unbelievable views! lots of up and down elevation. so it's a great workout. also the change in landscape as you work your way through is great. some parts are quite over grown and you lose track of the trail slightly. the full loop about 16km (9km on trail and 7km on trailway) from end of Bayer's Mill road took us 5-6hrs with a lunch break and couple of other stops to enjoy the views. bathrooms are available on the trailway just not the hiking portion of the trail.

Amazing trail with great views. It is a challenging hike but well worth the time and effort. Will be back to hike this again in the near future.

Entrance to trail hard to find behind Kent...Did trail counter clockwise. Fairly clear to follow at first once found...but then not easy due to tons of bunny trails until you get to lake where trail literally disappears...had to u-turn back. Will try doing again clockwise and hope be able to do full loop that way.
