Lack of signage made it quite confusing to know where you were, how far you had gone or where the next junction was, but overall a nice wooded hike.

Visited from Sweden and decided to try it out. Beautiful trail (surprisingly familiar type of environment for a Swede) which is well marked and quite technical. Rocks, roots, some pretty steep inclines and overgrown sections. A little muddy in a few places but no problem to keep your feet dry this day. I do a fair bit of trail running and really liked the technical terrain which for sure can be challenging if you are not used to "climbing" inclines. Did not see a living soul during my hike, apart from a few bugs when I stopped for view, water or snacks. Completed it in 4 hours in a fairly quick and steady pace with a few shorter stops. Loved the lakes and the parts where the forest had a "troll"-ish feel to it. Was tempted to go for a swim in the lakes but decided against getting wet this time. :-)

Lots of bugs at this time of year but the wind held them off. Lots of rocks, roots, and hills on this trail so wear good shoes and prepare for some vigorous hiking. Beautiful trail that’s great to do solo or with company. Good look off and resting spots for a water/snack break, cooking, camping, or simply just resting.

Great trail. Plenty of rocks/boulders to maneuver over and around, as well as several steep inclines and declines. It was a great workout! Mixed terrain with beautiful vistas and serene forest. Certainly not a beginner’s trail. Watch your step, there is ankle twisting and tripping potential with lots of roots and jutting rocks. My hiking poles were well used on this trail. I highly recommend this trail for hikers with a bit of experience.

I’ve hiked on this trail for as long as I can remember, it’s one of my favourites of all time! Such a variety of good trail and hard trail, nothin a good hiker can’t do! Lots of picture perfect spots, you always see at least one other person but it’s never too crazy! All around a great hike, you can go for as long or as short as you want!

good challenging trail

great for a day hike

Would probably rate this Trail as difficult due to rough terrain and very steep inclines. Took 6.5hrs and enjoyed every minute!

Early in the trail, a large dip in the path was full of water. There were old beams and fallen trees pushed in, but they were not secure -- be aware and cautious with your footing. Just prior to the bridge towards Granite Lake, the ground was completely saturated with water - the planks set up for crossing were submerged and loose. Fortunately a previous hiker had set up some rope to hold onto between two trees -- unfortunately, my stride was still not long enough to make it through and I ended up stepping ankle deep in water! Make sure you bring an extra pair of socks!

Parts of the trail were quite narrow through low shrubs. I recommend wearing/having long pants for this section.

Passed a few other hikers but little activity. Beautiful and quiet.

Bummer got all the way here and the trail head is off a private road. No where to park before this except a park then over a mile to hike to the start of the trail through a neighborhood. Not worth it. Decided to hike elsewhere.
