Depending on your fitness level and hiking experience I would rate this hike as a mod-hard trail. Absolutely worth the climb for the view. The beginning walkthrough is nice and easy then the climbing begins. A few small climbs and descents until the main climb through the crack up to the viewpoint.

Amazing hike, much preffered over Silver Peak even!

Great Hike with Amazing views at the top. Would recommend canoeing to the trail head at the end of Bell though.

Fun and challenging hike. Great views.

Quick, moderate hike. Great views.

The pictures don't do it justice ! The mountains are beautiful ! The trail is very well marked and maintained :)

A nice easy walk. Perfect for if you arrive in the afternoon. Nice views. Very quiet.

I wouldn't describe this trail as easy overall. There are easy sections, especially the beginning and the end, but some of the scrambling around rocks near the top was a bit challenging. Nothing too tough, but I would rank part of the trail moderate for sure. Beautiful vistas from the top. We loved the view of Georgian Bay and the islands.

Wouldn't really recommend this as a hike per se, but as a chance to see a lighthouse on Georgian Bay.
Instead of starting at the trail head indicated on this page, I would recommend driving all the way down Ontario street until you hit the closed gate access to the lighthouse. Park anywhere on the road side and the lighthouse is an easy 10 minute walk. If you want to keep hiking, continue walking away from Killarney. Other than the lighthouse access, which is clearly marked, the rest of the trail is unclear, so hike at your own risk. This is a dog friendly trail. I went early in early May and I was the only one on the trail.

I hiked this trail with my dog in May. We started the trail around 2pm. It took us about 3.5 hours in total with stops along the way. The trail wasn't too overcrowded since it was a week before the May long weekend.
It's a beautiful trail, and the view at the top definitely makes the climb worth it! It can be tough climbing some of the larger rocks along the route, and it isn't always clear where the trail is. There are lots of places to stop and take in the views along the route. Would definitely recommend this trail!

Amazing views! Make sure to wear good tread hiking shoes/boots. Rocks can be slippery to climb on when wet.

Although at times challenging, this trail is unique and offers unbelievable viewpoints! Would definitely recommend :)

Great trail - enough of a challenge and beautiful views!

Great trail. Nice views

Fairly active path, met lots of people, is quite the climb but it super worth it. Extremely unique and a little challenging.

Hiked this trail August 5, 2018. Started out early, around 8:30 am and met several people coming back on the way up. The first 2 km are a walk in the park but it then it gets more challenging as you get into more up hill hiking over lots of tree roots. From here it moves into scrambling over rocks up to the top of a hill (just a warm up to the Crack). You then have a decent and back into an uphill hike over tree roots before getting to the Crack. The Crack is a steep uphill scramble over more rocks but there is always a place to get a good foothold. It took about 2 hours in total to get to the top.
The view at the top is awesome but it started to get crowded around 11 am making it difficult to get good shots with foreground interest that didn’t have people in it.
Started back around noon and were back at the car around 1:30. The last kilometre was difficult even though it was easy trail. (Probably due to the heat and humidity).
The trail is well marked but you need to look up to see the markers. We were glad we took 3 1/2 litres of water. We drank 3 litres.
It would be a great trail in the fall or a great place to catch an awesome sunrise or sunset for those with experience.
We would rate the trail difficult.

Nice hike, nice views. Definitely doesn’t deserve the hard rating however.

It’s a weekly staple hike during July and August for us. Great way to kick start a work out and maintain your fitness level!

Challenging hike overall - lots of rocks to climb over and through with steep ascension close to the lookout. Absolutely amazing view at the top and worth the challenge. Saw families and dogs on the trail. You’ll need a partner to help your dog over the toughest points to avoid injury. Going down is tricky so make sure you take your time. A bucket list hike for any nature lover!

Challenging and rewarding. We did the hike with our two kids in backpacks. (3 years and 15 months). It was challenging at times but doable for sure. Saw lots of families and groups on the way there and back. Would recommend having one adult per child of hiking with kids. Going down was far more difficult than getting up. Views are paramount. Really great hike.

Rented a canoe from Bell Lake. The employee at Killarney Kanoes gave us some directions and tips. The canoe ride was about 40 min. We started the walk on the trail. Very easy walk that was about an hour. And then we stated the climb. Some areas are tougher than others. We were the only ones at the peak today when we arrived. Spectacular views from the peak. The trek down was a bit tough. We ended our day with Fish and Chios in Killarney.

I would not rate this trail as “moderate” and Lake of The Woods as “hard.” This trail’s elevations reserve it for more serious hikers. You can bring older children that are accustom to hiking with proper footwear. The views are remarkable and the traffic is light.

Some steep parts, some parts of the trail are poorly marked. Bugs were horrible.
Beautiful trail though. So many areas with amazing scenery. Wonderful views of the bog and lakes. Lots of variety of terrain, but easy to get though.

Amazing hike with breathtaking views ...... takes about three hours there and back and as an hour to enjoy the views up top......

Killarney mountain lodge is constructing more buildings and has destroyed access to this trail.
You kind of have to go on the edge of a construction site to get to the start. This makes it hard to get to, and it shows that it hasn’t been walked in a while. I suggest trying something else. We had to turn around after 5 min. Bad bugs and get very over grown. A shame really.
