Nice little hike, not overly challenging even for children. I've done it many times over the years, including in the winter (icy on the cliff).

Beautiful and demanding cross country trail in Algonquin Provincial park. The trail starts at the West Gate. There is plenty of parking space. There is a warming hut at a half distance. The trail is always nicely groomed by the provincial park staff. This is a trail not to be missed.

Great trail, well traveled in summer but thins out in fall. Nice campsites lakeside along the way.

Hiked the trail in December with snowshoes (though they were not really needed). Nice variety of things to see from different forests, to ice formations, to scenic views.

Great hike. Lots of wildlife and well marked and easy trail. A little hard on the knees bring a hiking pole. Winter camped along it, amazing

Very wooded trail. Very beautiful lake views at campsites. I recommend the campsite at Eau Lake. Very quiet and private single site with water access. Although many report wildlife, I did not experience any encounters of such.

Finished the loop with 5 hours. Beautiful view made the whole hiking full of exciting. Very wet and uneven surface, rain boots or waterproof boots could be more helpful.

Complete this trail with my wife and dog for 4 hours. Very beautiful view at 7 point. Forgot to open this App as it’s a new one in my iPhone.

We did this trail in the winter of 2017 (February) with our daughters 4 and 3, very scenic trail . Would definitely recommend hiking this loop in the winter weather

Very good for me but my wife had a difficult time. Very muddy in a lot of sections. Lots of rocks and roots.

First half is best. Turn back at stop 5 for a good 2 hour hike. Took 4 hours to do the whole thing

We finished the trail in 4 hours including stopping for pictures and breaks. The view is stunning.

The most polular trail in Algonquin Park for viewing leaf color changes in Fall. Really worth it. Moderate for every age.

great educational trail on beaver with very nice views.

If you'd like an easy scenic lookout trail this is for you but other than that there's not too much to see. There are definitely other and more rewarding trails in Algonquin, although at a higher difficulty (e.g. centennial ridges, booth's rock, beaver pond, track & tower, etc.)

Took 4 hours to complete the loop from car park - including breaks along the way. The ridges are beautiful and can be seen throughout the trail. There are various types of terrain, wet and uneven surfaces which makes this hike more challenging but it's not difficult. Proper footwear (trail running shoes or hiking boots) helps a lot.
