Trail markers were easy to see, trail had some great views but very overgrown with lots of logs to climb over/under. Overall enjoyable if you give yourself enough time to move at your own pace

If you’re looking for some real wilderness, this trail is it! It’s well-marked and offers some nice views and some really great stops. However it’s incredibly overgrown! Constantly having to push through plants and bushes for 15 km takes quite the toll. It would even take quite experienced hikers 6 hours just due to the conditions. If you’re up for a long kinda challenging hike I’d recommend it. (Also tons of wild blueberries along the way)

Very good trail if you're in the park for the day. uphill and down hill rocky train terrain but well marked and well maintained.

Trail is classified as easy it more moderate than easy. some parts the ferns have over grown and must of had to climb over atleast eight trees. The park list this trail as six km not four point three. beautiful views for sure a good work out.

First half of the trail is easy, next half a little more challenging. Nice views and nice path in the woods.

Moderate hike with some great scenic viewpoints, however it took us 10 hrs from start to finish due to many fallen trees & washouts all throughout the trail. Was difficult to navigate around the trail and get back on track & find the yellow signs because of this. Would only recommend after maintenance has been done to the trail.

Loved this beautiful hike. Did this with my 9 year old son and 6 year old daughter.

Tried the “Hawksridge” trail with goal of backcountry camping: absolute TERRIBLE. No fresh water on trail and the “campsites” had no clearings to pitch tent. Near zero view for majority of the 15km. Don’t bother.

Great trail, definitely wouldn't consider it an "easy" trail. Lots of climbing through multiple different terrains, including steep inclines of rock. Some great scenery at the lookout areas.
