Amazing challenge. I'm a guy who likes to get the hard stuff out of the way first, so it was very nice when my camp group over the summer decided to start on the north end. Was really hard on the feet, our group did about an average of 12k a day, the trip took 5 days to complete (although we decided to kill it one day so we got a whole day off at one of the campsites). Feet were wet for practically the entire trip, rained for the majority of the trip but that just makes you go faster, so not a total downside. The scenery changes immensely throughout the hike, keeps things very interesting. The campsites themselves are mostly gorgeous. Overall 10/10 would hike again.

Amazing, very challenging the rain retarded our every step, I injured myself on the south end of the trail which is where we started so I only made it too Marian lake but it was incredible . prepare yourself, I didn’t have trekking poles but I will definitely Invest in them next time as the injury would have been avoided if I had them

Ran the trail in one shot. Parks Manitoba did a nice job cleaning up some of the north end of the trail. Conditions were pretty awful due to a couple weeks of rain leading up to my day. Very beautiful, challenging terrain. Highly recommend for future adventurers. Hopefully the conditions were dryer than we had.

Amazing first time on the trail, definitely tests your fitness level! But worth it for the adventure seekers looking for amazing views and different terrains. Met the friendliest people along the trail as well.

Great new trail leading to beautiful views of the Winnipeg River

South to North: the common feedback I've heard from other hikers about this trail is the southern end is the most difficult with it's higher elevation through undulating terrain. TRUTH: I've unfortunately never completed the trail but have done the route from South Trailhead to Caribou Lake East a few times. Only once I've made the distance to Marion Lake where the scenery/trail only gets better from there (or so I've heard). I hope to finish this trail in full next year but always look forward to the thrill I feel starting this challenging and equally rewarding trail. See ya soon Big Whiteshell Trailhead (North Trailhead)!

So hot. No bugs. No bear sightings, which was good since we accidentally left the bear spray IN OUR TRUCK LOL Nice trail. We walked up to Caribou East. Spent the night then came back the next day. Was pretty well marked. Bring water!! Lots.

Easy, and lots of raspberries on the side of the trail

Great trail, definitely not moderate as it should be easy. Well groomed trail. Few options for bathrooms so be prepared.

Loved it !!

We did about 15km of the trail from caddy lake to bear lake hiking trail head. Watch for the cairns, it’s not always clear which way to go. Using this app helped us stay on the right path, there are a couple different off shoots. Beautiful scenery, lots of open spots, a few stream crossings.

A quick easy trail, great for a morning walk. Not too much traffic. Nice views around the water.

Gorgeous scenery! We did a portion of this trail - about 16kms total out and back from McGillvary Falls Trailhead. Lots of cairns and some signage but I was happy to hike this trail with more experienced hikers that helped lead the way. Forests, granite ridges, and lots of vegetation makes it interesting!

On June 8th, while hiking the Mantario Trail, I found a pair of black, "Foster Black," prescription glasses. I'm not exactly sure where I was on the trail when I picked them up, but it must have been somewhere between 40km and 50km from the south trailhead. I'm moving to Taiwan tomorrow, but I'm leaving the glasses at my in-laws place in Winkler, MB. If these are yours, or if you know whose they are, give this number a call: (204) 325-7611.

Did a small section on the Mantario Trail until a lookout. Interesting landscape change from a central flat landscape.

Nice, easy, short trail good for biking or walking. Cool bridge over the whiteshell river, and nice area for a picnic lunch by the sturgeon rapids.

It was easy to hike even for our 2 year old. The falls were okay and had their own kind of beauty to it.

Beautiful and challenging trail. We did the whole Mantario in September and unfortunately it was quite wet and cold (even got some snow). Can’t give it 5 stars because north trail head start is pretty gross as it goes through what looks to be an old road so it’s torn up and usually have huge puddles. Besides that the rest of the trail is gorgeous.

I would like to thank the people that have used their own signs to mark the trail. It would be nice if forestry would take some time and mark the trail thank God for this app because there was a few spots I did not know where to go. We hiked up to Caribou Lake. The first one or 2 km are very wet. After that the trail was in excellent shape again thank you to the people who have put their homemade signs up when we get the junctions

Great trai...tough test...well worth the walk.

My buddy and I went on the May long, at this time of year it was still a bit muddy and swampy at times. Very challenging terrain for us car campers, but with the right knowledge, gear and spirit it's totally doable. As for knowledge, know your foot care because of the constant ups and downs. Also, we heard wolf howls all night for three nights, so know how to properly store/hang food and such to avoid unwanted wildlife. Deer and wolf scat was everywhere, and grouse thumping can be heard as well. For gear, waterproof boots, sunscreen for going through the burned exposed forest sections and poles if that's your style. And never give up!! keep your spirits high! (Edit: Don't night hike!! We tried for fun, and got lost very quickly! Well marked, but difficult to follow in the dark. Follow the inukshuks if you're lost)
