Awesome! We took our 3 kids from Ages 4, 8 n 12. Little one made us little slow down but fun experienced as family adventure hiking together. We didn't reach up to end but only stop by before half way km. Our time run out. Lot rocks and tree roots. Some area water n mud. If you like to take a short swim just beside the trail there. Wear good trekking shoes or boots. Good shade area there to take break.

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

well marked and groomed. lots of wildlife snake, turtle, deer, beaver and a small black bear close to pinewood lodge. it was a fun hike. lots of horse flies.

Was a great trail, was able to take my younger siblings on it so it definitely wasnt terribly hard. Got a little lost and wandered down another trail due to our own inexperience. Overall very pleased, will go again!

We took our time on a 29•C day that was also smokey from northern forest fires. A mix of full sun and shade, and low river levels along with the smokey air meant you could see the river bottom colours and the trees in the distance had the look of an impressionistic painting. The south trial and the extension loop are a true moderate hike. The north trail could take bikes, pull wagons or sturdy strollers and is a gravelled path. A variety of rock and soil (clay, peat, sand), and diverse flora and fauna along the south loop and extension. Bugs were definitely out. A few points along the extension loop where the markers where harder to find. Sadly, some cigarette butts along the trail - a real danger in a dry time like this with crispy, dry and easily ignited lichen/moss everywhere. Overall - lovely and worked up a sweat.

It was a hot and Smoky day to be doing this trail today, but the breeze near the water was great. The shaded trails were great. Some roots here and there and on the way back there is one place that needs a marker to take you down the stairs on the trail. Otherwise, well marked and a lovely trail. It does have a lot of clinging and there are a few steeper spots. Dogs all seemed to be on leashes, which was great. Lots of cigarette butts on the trails, which were not! Still a beautiful hike.

This is a very challenging hike! It took me about 5.5 hours to complete this hike, as I am a novice hiker and took quite a few breaks due to the challenging terrain. I was so happy I didn’t get a single wood tick! I would definitely bring bug spray and extra water. I brought 2 litres of water and ran out the last few few kms back. The signage on the way back isn’t as visible on the way there. It’s very easy to take a wrong turn and lose your way. Just slow down and back track if you find yourself losing your way. This is a very challenging, yet rewarding hike!!!

I hiked Hunt Lake for my first time recently and it definitely won’t be the last time. It was incredible! This is my new favourite Manitoba trail! According to my FitBit, the trail was 11.5 km round trip although the map says 12 km. The terrain was pretty rugged as the winding trail followed alongside the shore of West Hawk Lake, passed through forested areas (some overgrown areas with a narrow path through the bush), involved steep climbs and descents on rock walls and had lots of roots and rocks on the path. The rocks were slippery in some areas so watch where you’re stepping. This hike is appropriately rated as difficult. It is an out and back trail. There were amazing scenic views of the lake along the way with some great swimming spots to take a refreshing dip. Close to the beginning of the trail, there is a really cool cave in a vertical rock wall with trees growing through the rocks that makes for great photos. The trail was mostly shaded but there were some areas in full sun. The trail ended at a quiet cove on West Hawk Lake with flat rocks for sitting and a shelter and fire pit at the 6 km mark. It was an awesome place for swimming, relaxing and enjoying lunch. The atmosphere was so peaceful! There were beautiful panoramic views of the stunning natural beauty. The trail was well marked and maintained for the most part. There were some downed trees across the path. It was fairly easy to see where the path was leading though on the way to the end point. There were blue arrows posted on trees and colourful flagging tape to guide the way. On the way back, there were some areas where it became confusing to know which way the trail led, as there were multiple well worn paths. If you find out you have taken the wrong path, just backtrack and find a sign or try another way. I found that when in doubt, climb up! There could be better signage on the way back as most of the signs are facing the opposite direction. I recommend wearing hiking boots with ankle support, not runners and definitely not flip flops (sadly, I saw this). It’s very easy to misstep and lose your footing on the rocks. Bring a swimsuit and quick dry towel for swimming at the various spots along the way and at the end of the trail. Make sure to bring sufficient water and food - at least 2 litres of water is recommended. It took me about 3 hours to complete the round trip hike not including a stop for lunch and swimming at the end for about half an hour. I didn’t take many breaks and was hiking at a good pace. The trail guide recommends that you allow 6 hours or so to hike this. The length of time will depend on your fitness level. I would consider myself to be athletic and I found this trail challenging but it was awesome. This hike was an amazing workout and I enjoyed the challenge! It was sweaty and tiring in the heat and humidity but so amazing. It was very rewarding and well worth the exhaustion and pain of sore muscles.

Great trail! Not a waterfall though.. more like a small creek. But still a great stop for a break/snack! Can be pretty steep at times and make sure you bring bug spray. But over all would do this trail again.

Trail was a nice surprise. Head all the way in to the picnic shelter and go for a swim!
