A bit more then 12 k but the view is nice at the end

Beautiful beach

it was ok for a short walk. easy going. but not very interesting. the picknick area not great either.

Loved it!

It’s a loop trail that goes around the lake and there’s lots of side trails to explore

Shaded, challenging enough at times to be interesting, beautiful surroundings

Challenging but not too long. Just right for a few hours. Great views!

amazing day hike. I like to do side trips up to the old iron mines. lots of sea life to sea and historical petroglyphs. a must do

quick and dirty hike

the timberman trail offers a more scenic route over the McKenzie trail. I recommend doing both to get the full experience

Easy 1.5 hour hike, view at about half an hour and then again 15 min later. A bit of steep rocky areas.

Not sure why this is getting such great reviews. Maybe cause this is as nice as it gets for the island? I live on the mainland and lots of the hikes I’ve done are spectacular. Anyways, this wasn’t hard imo, pup and me got to the top pretty quick but the view wasn’t too impressive so we didn’t spend any time at the top.

Great hike on a sunny, clear day. If it is a hot day and you have a dog with you bring water as no streams.

Very nice trail but with the gravel path in some places it’s not ideal for a stroller.

My favourite hike !

Good hiking trails for all levels.If you feel energetic just take a tougher trail.Less energetic then go for an easier one.Good range of trails.

Its very challenging and its a great workout. Also offers beautiful view.

We took the wrong way and it made for an amazing trek to the cross. Trail isn't blazed well at all. You hear a lot of "did you make it to the cross?" mid Trail and in the parking lot. Amazing views!
