The Top of the World trail had fantastic views and was really rewarding, although it took some effort to figure out where the trail was and how to get there.

The beginning of the trail starts from the parking lot of the Falcon Trails Resort, across from the main office building, about a 15-20 minute drive from the Falcon Lake townsite. You have to follow the High Lake Trail and follow the signs for the High Lake Eco Cabins and it eventually meets up with the Top of the World loop, where there is a sign indicating this trail. It was a little difficult to find and confusing at times and the signage could definitely be better. The trail map on this site is wrong and the top loop is not part of this trail, just the bottom loop.

The loop was along the rocky and forested landscape typical of the Whiteshell. The viewpoint overlooking Falcon Lake and the surrounding forest was gorgeous and there was a nice bench for sitting and admiring the views there. This was definitely the highlight of the trail. It was a short and scenic trail that was moderately challenging.

The trail and views were worth the initial confusion and effort in finding the right path. Would highly recommend this one!
