I’m writing this review pretty late - I visited this trail back in September but a nice easy trail with some good views, especially with the fall colours. Not sure if it was just the time of year but the “rapids” were more of a stream

Beautiful swim spot halfway through the trail, and the water is crystal clear with an emerald green tint. Water was super warm, I couldn’t resist jumping in. View is okay in comparison the lookout but the water made it overall better.

An excellent challenge for hikers of various levels. Plenty of ups and downs. Views from the ridges are excellent. Bring bug spray ... they were nasty in places.

It was our first 10k hiking experience and we were travelling with 4 people and a dog. It took us about 4.5 hours, but we had some big breaks. It definitely has a lot of great views!! Saw a few snakes, but they were harmless. Got sidetracked once, but this app helped us get back on track! We hiked it yesterday and we barely saw any people at all. At Every lookout point we were the only people, which is incredible for this trail!! I would not do it again since it was a little bit hard, but definitely something you should do once for sure!

Magnificent Took me 3hr15min with my dog. Took two short breaks. Stunning views. Very clearly marked. I used bug spray and I think I came out with only one bite. So worthwhile. Wasn't busy. Sunday, July 5th.

Good trail. We were a little disappointed in the difficulty as the middle part of the trail is a long super easy stretch used for service/research vehicles. However, that part has neat views of the marshland. We came prepared after reading reviews and bought $14 bug shirts at Walmart. I think the bugs weren’t bad today so we didn’t use it until after the easy stretch when we didn’t feel like dealing with buzz in our ears anymore. We hadn’t been bit up to that point, but I could see how the bugs could get bad! It’s been dry lately so the trail was fine but I imagine regularly it’s a floor is lava in the forest sort of situation. Be prepared for mud!

Great hike! with beautiful views worth the climb up. As can be expected there are lots of rocks as this is canadian shield and bugs are bad this time of year. i would rate this trail as moderate not difficult.

Path is way too rocky. Feet hurt a lot halfway into the hike despite having good hiking shoes. Also the real view comes almost at the end of the trail at the 10km mark. Most of the trail up until that point is mediocre at best. Also there were A LOT of mosquitoes and flies throughout the trail (June). Effort to value ratio isn’t that good but if you’ve already done booths rock and have time to kill then this is good.

This is a challenging hike. Lots of rocks and tree roots. Lots of good elevation changes. Most of the hike is through forest. When you do get a view of the lake, it’s a backcountry campsite so hope no one is camped there at the time.

What an experience! Me and my friend started the trail around 10am and finished at 2pm. We took a few breaks during the way to enjoy the amazing views. I would highly suggest doing the full trail as you will get to see a lot of different scenery. You can also go down by the water after finishing the trail for a swim! Bugs were not that bad and didn’t see a lot of snakes. Overall, great experience!!

It's a decent trail if you love backpacking. We 2 people did 95km loop, and it was beautiful experience. There are lots of people doing first loop, but if you are going for this, you better do biggest loop. You won't regret at all.

Trail mostly wooded, with some boardwalks. The middle part of the trail has sandy paths and a lot of deer flies. The rest of the trail definitely has mosquitoes, but is a bit more bearable than the deer flies. Bug spray necessary. Definitely has many marshy/boggy areas and lakes, with wildlife sighting opportunities. Sjnce we went out around 1030, we didn't see any moose or beavers but we saw a few herons! Reviews saying its muddy in some places are right (it goes throigh so many bogs and marshes) - we went when it had been dry the last few days, and there were still some mud areas you have to skirt around, though not impossible at all. Might not recommend the day after a rain

Good trail, would say it’s pretty moderate toll over the last half. First half has the best ponds/lakes for bird viewing. Recommend bringing binoculars! The deer flies around the lake area were intense and not very enjoyable. Bug spray is a good idea

My favourite trail so far. Lots of hikers and I haven’t seen any snakes. The view at the top is breathtaking! Just pay attention to the markings you will easily get lost. enjoy this trail!! Enjoy the view!! A must hike trail in Algonquin Park!!!

A decent hike, not overly difficult. Followed the trail markers and went clockwise, which was definitely the right choice. The views while along the ridge are beautiful! The forest sections are mediocre in comparison to other hikes in Algonquin. The trail needs some grooming. We began around 8 am, and didn't see anyone else until the beginning of the trail. Parking lot was almost full when we got back to our car. Took us around 3.5 hours with two 10-15 minute breaks. Saw a black bear between marker 8 and 9! As with all of Algonquin Park, expect bugs.
