Beautiful trails. 3 different trails to choose from. A 7km and two 4km options.

Good outing ....esp fun in the winter time.

Great area for a long or short hike, there are different loops from a 45 min loop, to several hour loops.

This one works you! I did this solo on the first snow fall of the season in late October making for some very slippery sections. I did it in about 4 hours but it took everything out of me. In my opinion it has the best views in the park, so totally worth the effort.

Did the trail in the snow and it was a beautiful trail! Definitely one of the harder ones I've done so far. I would recommend this trail to anybody who is able to finish the whole 10km loop.

Fun hike. Took 4.5 hrs. A few nice views, but a lot of the hike takes you away from the lake. Trail was well marked, no map needed. Only saw one other hiker. Although the park was closed (closes for about 2 months) we were able to access the trail without issue.

Long Sault is my go-to for hiking and walking the dogs. There are a few trails to choose from and it’s quiet, but you can hear traffic from nearby main roads.

Awesome hike at the end of fall season!

Took 3.5 hours with a few food stops. Trail was not too hard, a little wet in areas (it rained the day before). The blue trail markers sometimes are hard to follow so we had to back track 2 times. The views were nice, mostly mountain top and lakes. I recommend arriving early to get a good parking spot, and wearing good hiking shoes.

Eh, wheres the real hiking trail? My gps took me to toronto zoo so i had to go back to the bridge at old finch and park.

Nice paths, but a bit boring. You can hear the traffic noise from the road nearby. I wish I brought my horse, but even a bicycle would have made the trails more exiting.

The view when you reach to the top is breathtaking. Must have a good shoes. Definitely coming back next fall early in the morning when sunrise strikes

Went today and the colors were fantastic... Went clockwise and the views were nicer on the east side as there are more trees and no lake.
Took us about 4h but we had plenty of little stops. Would say hike is moderate as there is not a lot elevation gain.

Gorgeous views. A bit challenging but totally worth it. Took about 3 hours with minimum stops just to enjoy the view.

Great trail can be busy on weekends and the loop on the river side is not marked very well so be sure to watch for the markers!

Parking was difficult to find if you just drove to the coordinate provided. The trail itself was quite pleasant, flat with some views of small lakes and streams. Probably even prettier with the fall colours a few weeks later!

My family and I joined another family and did two parts of the trail at two different times of the day: between km 2-3 on the east shore and km 12-15 on the west side. 12-15 km is all forest. its a very nice hardwood forest - lots of ups and downs and roots, rocks and mushrooms - but no access to the water. I would rate that a 3 star. We only encountered two other groups, which was nice although we could hear the road occasionally (and hunting rifles?) which shattered the illusion. Km 2-3 are near the campgrounds and although we saw lots of people the trail was simply stunning. Lots of Canadian shield and places to sit by the water and enjoy the view. I would rate that side 5 stars. Average both sides together and you get my 4-star rating :)

I do enjoy this trail. However I find it a little boring in sections. About 4 hours at moderate speed. Lovely vistas about 1/2 way.
Good footwear is an absolute must in this trail as the rocks can be slippery. Do take plenty of water as well!
Know your limitations on this one as it can be lengthy.

Thoroughly enjoyed getting right into nature on this hike. The path is narrow and for the most art, not maintained. In some areas the path was clear and there were boardwalks for short distances. The scenery was awesome! Fields of flowers, tall trees, babbling river — worth coming here for a nature trip! Wear comfortable shoes as the terrain varies quite a bit. And yes, there are a lot of red ants so comfortable shoes AND socks is a good idea. I’ll definitely be back to explore more!

hike this trail every day ....best trail in this area

We did this trail on the Labour Day holiday Monday and only encountered 2 couples which was great. The trail is 15km, not 13.6. It took us almost 6 hours at a decent pace with a few snack breaks. The first part of the trail near the lake was very pretty and breezy with lots of rocks to sun yourself on if you want to. The trail was well-marked and the terrain was not too difficult. There was a lot of up and down but nothing too slippery or treacherous. There were hardly any bugs to speak of. It was a great day!

You can get lost for hours and it is the best thing ever!! This is a great trail for ATV !! 5 stars !!

Great trail for a day hike with beautiful scenery.
must have: good hiking boots, comfortable backpack, plenty of water and food. My hiking boots were good but not THAT good, near the end of the 10km my feet were a little tender.
I definitely recommend this trail as a Medium in difficulty.

This trail has beautiful look out spots.
The terrain is extremely difficult, lots of long, steep inclines. Bring lots of water and snacks. It took us a little over 4 hours to complete with few stops.

Awesome trail. I went with my parents (64years old) and it took us 6 hours to complete. The trail was slippy because of dramatic rainfall and we did stop and rest a lot.
My mom regretted the trail, I would do it again. Lovely views, it had all I wished for!

This was an overall nice hike. A great day hike with no gear. The terrain is a bit rough in sections, and the far North section takes you along the top of some beaver dams. In late August it was damp, in the spring I can imagine it would be very wet. The path is also overgrown in spots. So long pants are wise. There's not much in terms of elevation change. One or two slightly steep hills. The bugs were active I would be apprehensive doing this in the spring. Total hiking time ~5h + breaks.

I hiked in with 17Kg (37.5lb) of gear, mostly camera equipment. I had absolutely no problems. 7km the fist day, 8km the second day. Good sky views from sites 528, and 530. The ski is reasonably dark, but it's under a flight path. So if you're doing time lapse work you're going to get airplanes.

Great loop to hike or run. The hills can be tough so make sure to pace yourself and enjoy. Lots of smaller loops if you are short on time and there is another 7.2 ish km of trails on the east side for more exploring.

Amazing and beautiful views. The trail is well marked. It will be a challenging hike for some as you must go up and down hills. It's rewarding and would love to do it again in the fall.
