Great day spent exploring McNabs Island. Nice trails and fun to walk around the ruins and lean about the history of this island. We took many breaks and enjoyed nature. Fun day!

I went after a big rain so it was a little soupy close to the lakes but someone had put down logs to walk across in most parts and even made a makeshift bridge out of fallen branches. I recommend going for sure, more of a moderate to easy hike and the trail is well walked on and easy to follow

pretty easy trail, a nice hike with wonderful views. good for the family, but watch young kids with some steep drops.

Easy walk, not much to see!

Just a logging road—no particular view or anything. Lead to a power plant and I honestly felt like I was trespassing. I personally wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

The falls were really pretty, but rating lower because there is a section of the service road shortly after the bridge that is completely washed out, so we weren't able to get the distance we were hoping for. We would have selected a different hike for today as we were planning for more exercise, but still a pretty place to visit and will go back now that expectations have been managed.

Great trail, but a little rough on the edges. It was maintained by the Bowater Mersey pulp company but after a takeover by Resolute Pulp, the trail was abandoned and all the trailhead signage was removed. The trail interpretation signage and bridges remain however and are in pretty good shape. There are cool remains of an old logging camp in the middle. Avoid in early spring as the Hiking Trail Road can be rough on non-4WD vehicles until it dries out and the trail can be icy. The first stretch on the historica Old Annapolis Road is an ATV trail and thus is rocky and eroded but the trail soon soon branches off and becomes a nice forest and lakeside path.

Nice short rugged hike. The the orange flagging at the lower trailhead on Shore Drive now leads down to Admiral's Cove on the Basin with some nice rocky perches to look across the Basin. The uphill trail is harder to spot. The upper trailhead offf Snowy Owl has more parking spots. It seems to get a fair bit of night time use by teenager party lovers so the first lookoff at Eagle's Nest has a lot of grafitti and garbage. This tapers off and the rest of the trail was unspoiled - very little garbage.

Not a bad ride but lake view and water fall makes the ride worth while. Mostly service road ride. Close to home so nice one for me.

Can’t see much of the lake

Did this trail in January, there was a few inches of snow on the terrain almost the whole hike. Great views. The majority of it was repetitive steep climbs and descents for the length of it, we then hiked down and did the way back on the flat trail which was about another 7k. Took us about 7 hours total with lots of stops and slowed down by the snow and weather. Can be hard on the body, but a good challenge!

Nice trail. I have been a couple times and enjoyed it.

The falls are to the right when you come to the T 5-10 min walk in through the woods after the bridge.

Loved it

Great view of falls, lots of water

Wicked hike. Moderate to difficult terrain. Lots of steep climbs on a well-marked trail. Took us about two hours at a relatively quick pace and two short breaks.

great little trail with scenic lake views. It's pretty wet and icy in early Spring and sometimes washed out.

Fell in love with this place . Beautiful view of the waterfall.

Great walk. Was super icy. Stop at the bridge and walk in to the falls there. We keep right on going because the map told us to.

Check what kind of hike you're in for! Went in Feb and the entire road was slippery ice. Maybe bring your skates!

Some newly felled trees across trail on West side of Ash Lake, otherwise in great shape this spring.

there are two ways to enter this trail, you can enter at the sign on shore drive or take a few side streets up the hill and get in by a sign there at a small dead-end road branching off the street, there are usually cars here so it makes it easier to find. this entryway is best for short trips just to see the view. before you get to the view there is a small path that goes down beneath the cliff that leads into a more open space with the best view of bedford. highly recommend going down this path

Nice in the fall. Ash Lake is quiet and lovely. It's really good to record and compare with the map as the trails can be a little faint at times. There are tapes and paint at tricky spots though plus some signs. I didn't go the Hobson's Lake route but picked a different way in and back.

Great trail for all.

The Charlie's trail was not well beaten... too deep of fern bushes for my likings.
The only great thing about this hike was the waterfall but even that wasn't spectacular... maybe in the spring.

We went to McNabs for an overnight camping trip and it was great! The water taxi picked us up in Eastern Passage and brought us to a beach on the island. We hiked the whole island and got to see many cool things (fort, battery, cannons). Highly recommend this trip :)

Easy and well marked trail for a quick walk.

Beautiful and such a well-maintained trail. Waterfall was awesome!
