Today is Sunday, June 17, 2018. I arrived at the lookout point about a half hour ago and am embracing the breeze and the escape from the bugs! For all those hiking his today, your welcome for clearing the millions of cobwebs! lol. The hike is generally fairly tame, but the ascent to the lookout point is quite the chore! Especially the never ending staircase! All in all a good hike, will depart the lookout in just a few minutes for the last half.

Not much in the way of rapids but a nice little walk. Some areas are muddy and need to step carefully. Wooded area and can be best with bugs.

Beautiful trail!! Seriously buggy make sure to use mosquito net or spray !! Short and easy hike but great photo opportunities !!!

Very simple trail has some good views and the boardwalk goes over a portion of the big. If you’re lucky you may see a moose.

This trail is quality for anyone who enjoys a little challenge, with incredible views. I believe it is best hiked in fall or late summer, to keep the bugs fewer and less intrusive. The fall offers stunning views of colourful Canadian forests.

Second time doing the loop at the bottom end of the Western Highlands, accessed from Hwy60, and it was amazing. I happened to pick the perfect weekend (2nd weekend in May) which was perfect hiking temperature of around 14C in the day, but a but chilly at night (around 3C) but the best thing ... zero bugs! And I mean zero. Hit the window between not too cold, and before they hatched. My first time on this trail, last year, was incredibly wet and I didn't have the right boots, so felt like I was "portaging" around wash-outs on the trail all day long, and took me 2.5 days (2 camps) to get through. This time I had proper boots and it wasn't as wet - and did the loop in 9.8hrs hiking. Even so, I did spend a night a Maggie Lake which was amazing. I live in Toronto so I drive up and stay at a hote/motel in Huntsville the night before so as to get an early start. Great hike that's totally do-able in a weekend for Torontonians.

Nice walk, but high traffic and some areas with mud. I did this trail with my 4-year old daughter without any problem.

1st backpacking trip. Finished 40km in 3 days and it was absolutely beautiful. Definitely suggest going before it gets too hot and the bugs are all out. There was still some snow on parts of the trail and a lot of flooding throughout.

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.

One of our favourites in Algonquin Park.

A very long and beautiful trail. Make sure you start early in the day and give yourself atleast 7-8 hours to experience the wildlife and the ponds.
I completed this trail in June. Almost 30% of the trail was flooded due to rain and increased water level of the ponds resulting in alot of mud and bushwhacking.
Be prepared.

Very easy hike & was worth it even though I didn't see a moose but you do see a lot of their poop!
