Really awesome scenery and stone work ! Don’t buy the hot chocolate from the vendors it’s not good

Gorgeous but too many stairs. I prefer more natural terrain.

Gorgeous in the Spring, around Mother’s Day, to see thousands of trilliums and other spring flowers.

Bring bug spray

I did this trail with my dog on a Thursday morning. It was very foggy out and we only ran into one person (also with a dog) on the entire trail. I hiked from the Lauriault Trail to the Waterfall Trail, down to the waterfall, then through the tunnel and back to the parking lot via the Mulvihill trail. The entire loop took less than an hour and half, walking slowly and stopping to take lots of photos. Beautiful foliage this time of year! Definitely wear boots as there are many wet areas along the trail. If I do this trail again, instead of taking the Mulvihill trail back I will detour through the Mackenzie King Estate. Highly recommend!

Even on a busy weekend or holiday, this trail gives every adventurer or runner a chance to see something. From the deer stand to the many varieties of birds and other 4-legged friendlies trying to grab some free seed....there is something for everyone.

The trail is quite extensive, especially with the "fire break" addition beyond the Bird Sanctuary (post 2012 wildfire)....trails are well groomed and marked so you make sure to "stay on the trails".

Enjoy the nature you may not realize is right in your own backyard on this very-walkable, multi-length trail. Pick the right trail for you or your family's abilities. Remember to bring lots of bird seed and hold your hand up.

Too much bush and plants in the way

It reminds me Banff or Lake Louise. Lovely trail.

Nice easy hike with lots of info graphics about the unique ecosystem of pink lake!

Perfect hike for the family. My 5 and 7 year olds were able to complete this hike with ease, and were kept interested by the turtles, tadpoles, fish and frogs that we saw.

Great trail with nice view of lake. A little too easy for me so stopped to go into the caves. Best part was wading through the cavern waters and being underground!

Beau sentier. J’aime le fait qu’il donne accès à plusieurs autres sentiers pour ceux qui veulent faire un plus long trajet.

Fun walk with our dog!

Easy, great views for pictures

Easy trail. Lots of man made wooden steps.

A fun hike though the Forest. It was cool in that part of it follows the Rideau Trail for a while so you get to follow the orange blazes. Bring Bug repellant in the summer.

Nice easy loop - took about 30 to do it - so I pooped twice to make it a nice hour long. Great views up top. I’d say easy to easy intermediate. Go early as it gets busy around lunchtime.

Scenic and an easy walk.

Great relaxing hike and so much to see. 7.2km Bugs only on last 200m. Would definately hike it again!

I loved this trail. Nice and easy with one scraggly part on the Chipmunk Trail. Some cool things to see like the Lime Kiln, Views of Swamp, Wild Birdcare Centre, and we saw Wild Turkeys! Amazing Trail!

A great trail to try if you’re looking for something quick and interesting. Although I would consider this trail “easy”, proper footwear is definitely a good idea because of the steep climbs and stairs. Not accessible.

Worth checking out if you want a scenic yet easy coasting Trail. The lookout is worth the time and the waterfall is beautiful. There are some interesting aspects to the layout of the trail which make it enjoyable.

Started at P12 which was easy to find using google maps. Headed out uphill right away on Trail 40, then turned onto Trail 24. Turned right onto Trail 1B and followed the signs to the lookout. There were washrooms and garbage here as well as a parking lot. Took 1B back to Trail 18 which then turned into Trail 2 back to Trail 40 and the start. It was about 10.25km and 260m of elevation. Very beautiful trail, well marked and easy to follow.

Beau parcours !!

Beautiful short trail with lots of stairs and amazing views of Pink Lake!

Very buggy, had to jog a few parts because they were so bad! Trail was nice, fairly easy but could be a bit bumpy for a stroler. Also my car window got smashed while we were hiking and things were taken from my backseat so that really sucked, but the hike itself was nice.

Good trail but it is best to go left at the fork to give yourself a good challenge and save the view/lookout for last. We did it the opposite way and thus it was mostly downhill!
