Went for a hike and overnight stay. Got to Park at 9am on Saturday and left on Sunday morning. We did 8Km on Saturday and camped at site 6a. Took about 3.5hrs but that time included :30min lunch stop and we went off track to check out a lookout point. On Sunday we did the rest a 4.2Km trek that took us back to the parking lot at Big Salmon Parking. That took us 1.5Km but we didn’t stop and did great time. There are quite a bit of marshy areas to get by but there’s was always a way to get around it with no issues. Lots of uphill and downhill areas durning the hike. You could also park at the park store and start hike from there but that’s another hour to your trek. We parked at Big Salmon parking to avoid the extra distance hiking.

Challenging trail, with lots of scenic views, waterfalls, and beaver dams to look at. We saw quite a few snakes, a beaver, a white tail deer and a painted turtle. The trail is rather buggy when it dips down between rock cuts. Lots of elevation changes, a total of 89 flights climbed as per my Health iPhone app. The dogs really enjoyed this trail as there were lots of areas to cool off in the water.

Fun trail. Lots of wooden walk ways over small rivers, ponds and even a waterfall. Lots of fun for the dogs!

Love this trail. Great for a day hike but offers more challenging conditions than your average walking trail in the province. Wish I could find more trails like this one (outside of Frontenac Park)

One of my favourite places for a quick snowshoe. Beautiful scenery!

Completed the loop in October...while camping in the park. Wonderful fall colours well marked trails..definitely will do again in the near future

A beautiful area, with well maintained boardwalks and clear trail markings. There are many hiking loops to choose from in the park, so the length of hike can be customized to some degree. The landscape is mildly rugged Canada shield with many small lakes and ponds. Some areas were a little soft without being muddy, but it has been a wet year. There are pit toilets available at campsites scattered throughout the park.

Nice scenic ridge along the center of the trail. Lots of beaver dams/ponds great for dogs to swim in. Lots of wildlife around.

Beautiful little trail. A good chunk of it is board walks, so it is a fairly easy hike. Also easily accessible in the winter for snow-shoeing

Beautiful hike. Make sure to grab a trail guide to learn about the interesting geological history of the area as you go!

Fairly flat with four or five short climbs. Beautiful ponds and lakes. Saw lots of chipmunks and birds.

This is such a great trail with many interesting views along the way. There is also a mine entrance you can look down. It is pretty challenging in winter time especially with two little kids but it was a great adventure.

This trail is inside of Frontenac Provincial Park. You will need to buy a parking pass from the visitors center which costs $14.00. They take interac and credit card so if you don't have cash on hand that is no problem. There are other trails to choose from as well.

It's a challenging trail, featuring easy to moderate terrain. Can be muddy in early spring. Takes another 2km to get to the trail from the park office. A nice trail featuring a few smaller lakes, rocky terrain in some areas, a few beaver dams and plenty of creeks and bridges.
