Great winter hike, easy to follow and the variations made it a challenge too. The AllTrails map has the end along the road but there is a section of the south shore trail (route 2) that allows you to walk that section along the lake instead!

HikingGreat!Snow

This makes for a good "add on" to the Top of the World trail. When you're done the TotW loop, it's just a short jaunt to High Lake down this trail. As others have noted, it's a gravel road for most of it and for the last bit, it turns into a foot path through the forest, but it's still easy. Once you get to the lake, the wide, easy trail continues along the shoreline with a sign indicating that it's part of the Trans-Canada Trail. There is also a narrower path that goes up into the woods. I followed this for a bit, but decided to turn back since I wasn't sure where it was going. I might go back on a long summer day and follow it further. I'm guessing it loops back up to the eco-cabins, but this is just a guess.

HikingGreat!Icy

I hiked the Amisk Trail on November 14, 2020. This is one of my favourites in the Whiteshell! The trail is just over 4 km and is a loop starting from just north of Brereton Lake. The trail starts off my leading through mostly forest and then climbs on top of the rock face to the first viewpoint overlooking the Rennie River. It continues on the rock face to a second viewpoint and then leads to a junction where you can do a short spur down to the river, head to Inverness Falls (would not recommend - it’s barely a waterfall/rapids and is very underwhelming. Also, the trail is super hard to find and follow) or continue back to the parking lot. The loop back leads through mostly forest. I loved the wooded sections and it was so peaceful! Some of the rocks had light snow cover and ice underneath, so be careful when you’re stepping. Hiking poles were helpful to avoid falling in these areas! There are some ups and downs but they are short and not intense. The trail was beautiful and not busy at all (I started around 11:30 on a Saturday). It was lovely to get into nature and experience this trail again. Would highly recommend!

HikingGreat!

Great little trail. It's right beside the TransCanada Highway, so it's not the most peaceful trail, but it's good for a little jaunt. If you're coming from the west, take the Falcon Lake exit off the highway and then take the right at the 4-way stop and it'll take you under a bridge and straight to the trail. If you're coming from the east, take the Falcon Lake exit and turn right into the stables. This is where the trailhead is. (If you're coming from the east, you won't be able to see the sign for the trail until you're passing it, as it faces the road and it's on the west side of the stable area entrance).

HikingGreat!

I really liked this trail. There is only one tiny square sign indicating where it is, so keep your eyes peeled for that as you make your way up the gravel path. You should note that this trail is also a mountain bike trail, which is well marked and features mountain bike infrastructure along the way. I was a little confused because once you leave the lookout, all you see are the signs for the mountain bike trail. I wasn't sure if maybe I had gotten onto the wrong trail from the lookout, so I ended up backtracking to the shortcut and I took that back to the main access trail that goes up to the lookout. If you are only interested in going up to the lookout and back, then taking the shortcut on the way down (provided you continue along the loop for a bit) gives you a nice little claustrophobic jaunt through the forest and makes it essentially a there-and-back trail. (You'll see a sign for the shortcut on the way up to the lookout and this is where you pop back out if you continue around the loop and take it on the way down). Great little trail. Can't wait to go back and try the full loop next time. Also note that you can cut some of the trail out if you want (especially on the way back) by using the ski slopes and other various trails that criss cross this area. On my way back, I went down beside one of the ski slopes and then picked my way down this other steep trail back to the parking lot.

Did a few hikes in the area and really enjoyed this one. The start is an easy gravel trail then it gets more “moderate” as you gain elevation as it is more rock and dirt trail. You were in the forest and it was beautiful up until the view point which was even more amazing. Drove out from Winnipeg for the hike so any kind of nature that doesn’t feel like the prairie is great. Definitely would recommend for an easy scenic quick hike.

First km was a bit mucky but trail was great after that! Enjoyed the climbing at the end, and the view was worth it. Hiked on a Saturday afternoon and trail was moderately busy. Would definitely do this one again!

A pleasant trail tucked between the highway and the lakeshore cabins. We watched an otter and some birds from the viewpoint at the end of the spur. Finding the start of the side trail to Inverness Falls required the All Trails map.

Beautiful day for it. Air quality was a bit muggy. Muddy in the early part of the trail and was wet, so rocks were very slippery.

Was a good challenge for me near the end. Rock to go down and one up with ropes for support. The mud made it slippery on the one rock.. Glad I had my hiking poles and decent shoes. Couple of spots with water and mud. Did some bush whacking to get around.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Really nice hike across pretty varied terrain. Mostly dry today with a small number of somewhat muddy sections. The “falls” as they were are completely unspectacular, but the rest of the hike is quite lovely. Very pretty views of McGillivray Lake, especially so calm with a thin sheet of ice in early November. Make sure you do the whole loop and trip to the picnic site, the small amount extra time is worth the payoff. Note: we did a dumb thing and went past the Do Not Enter signs, mistakingly thinking they were targeted at mountain bikers. They aren’t. The old end of the trail is pretty grown in, is quite steep, and rocky. We made it through with no problems, but this section would be very challenging in the rain or snow.
