Gorgeous gorgeous views from the rocks, and plenty of areas to climb around and get spectacular views of the lakeshore and surrounding islands

My favorite Trail to hike year round. The views of Old Woman make you feel like you’re in Hawaïi or along PCH. Hiking with 35# toddler on your back makes it a good workout. Pretty moderate terrain :)

The best kept secret of Algoma. Usually I see no one on the trail and the
trail makes no attempt to be direct and the late fall and winter, slippery patches....a beautiful trail with outstanding views.....at foam lake you can camp as long as you get a backcountry permit....then summit in the morning....one of my favorite trails....feel the burn

Nice trail , easier compared to the other trails in the area .. Have picnic tables at the beginning of the trail, for a quick snack

First note, this is NOT an easy trail. Anyone with knee or ankle issues may have a difficult time over the long sections with softball to volleyball sized round rocks covering the trail. I would rate this as moderately difficult as other trail sites do. While the lake is mentioned in the description, the high views are the best points to list. The scenery is gorgeous. The walk through the woods was a great break from driving. Mushroom enthusiasts will have a lot to look at.

This is a beautiful trail and is marked fairly well. The beginning/end hour are quite easy and a little boring but the terrain gets more difficult as you go on. I did this as an overnight camping trip and really enjoyed it. There are spots along the way you can stop to swim in and the view from the top of the waterfall is gorgeous. You could do it as a one day hike if you left early, however I think it would be more enjoyable to take your time and spend the night.

This trail has some amazing scenery but is not easy. Just as you enter the trail, there is a warning sign , letting you know people have fallen to their death or have been seriously injured, so why is this is rated easy. It might be a short hike but there’s some tricky navigating. The diabase canyons and pictographs are the highlights. Wish they would put some sort of rail system to hold onto where the pictographs are located, it was wet and slippery when we went and didn’t get to see all of the pictographs because of the risk factor. I wouldn’t recommend bringing your dog to trail and there’s a sign saying no dogs.

Really great half day hike. Took us four hours with several long stops. Lots of amazing views and interesting things to see (lookouts, interior lake, Lake Superior shoreline, waterfall) along the way. Trail had some rocky sections with several up and downs but otherwise a comfortable hike.

Power hiked the ascents and ran the flats/descents. Several amazing views packed into a relatively short trail. Trailhead sign isn't lying about the steep ascents/descents and slippery sections. Roughly ten stream crossings, some over boulders, but overall trail is easy to navigate. Worth the effort, one of the best trails in Ontario!

Loved this trail. The trailhead sign warns trail takes 2-3 hours. We did it with two kids, 9 and 11, in 1.5 hours. It’s a steep climb, but worth the effort. There are about three lookout points

Beautiful short hike ! Lots of guests swimming off the rocks, so if you're interested in that bring a bathing suit. I would also recommend running shoes so you don't slip off the rocks.

This trail track IS NOT THE TRAPERS TRAIL,
It seems to be a manual track of an old, very old path that does not even exist elsewhere than on some wrong topo maps

Not an easy trail for the passive hiker, elderly, or small children. Beautiful views of the Lake in the end. Really enjoyed this short hike.

This is a beautiful trail!!! The lookouts are fantastic and the forest is amazing. The trail is well marked but it is very rugged with roots and boulders.
The sign at the trailhead rates this as a moderate trail - it's absolutely NOT easy! Be prepared for steep hills with lots of rocks and boulders to climb/descend.

Easy and fun :) We did it in less than 2 hours and take 30 minutes to eat on the beach !

Absolutely worth the drive from Sault Ste Marie! Trail is decently marked. Distance on here is def accurate. Definitely wear big spray if you’re hiking during summer - stagnant water near Lake Superior makes for a very buggy experience. Stop at EVERY scenic overlook, and spend time on the rocky beach. Do keep in mind that part of this trail goes on the rocky beach by Lake Superior. Lake Superior Provincial Park is phenomenal. Definitely swim in Orphan Lake and Lake Superior. Both feel so refreshing.

Definitely worth it! Amazing views!

Awesome! Make sure to bring good footwear and go on a day when the lake is calm to maximize your visit!

Hate to say it, the hike/trail and scenery was better than the pictographs. Still worth the trek down. Not an easy go to reach bottom. No taking granny down.
If your in health and good knees, your good to go.

This is a must to do. Bring swim wear. Absolutely stunning. Great opportunities for soaking in some natural whirl pools
Beautiful!!

Nice walk. Boardwalks always put you in the heart of things. Relaxing.

Great hike. Beautiful views and bring your shorts for the back 9. Opportunity for a soak in a “pool” or two

This epic trail offers many fishing opportunities along the Agawa River. Beware that the trail becomes a bit more rugged past burnt rock pool. Ive only done this trail as a overnight trip, but have heard of people making it a dayhike. I really enjoyed the beauty and challenge of hiking this trail.
Asking park staff about current trail conditions is probably a good idea.

I would say the trail is a bit higher rated than moderate, although the beginning sections are quite easy. Trail is awesome and one of my favourites I've backpacked. Constantly having the Agawa river beside you and the agawa falls at the end are worth the hike.

A steep, hard 270 metre climb on the first 1.5 kms leads to some awesome views of Agawa Bay and majestic Lake Superior. The views are some of the best on the east Superior shore. There are lots of rocky sections requiring attention to footwork. The trail has been tagged as ‘dog’ and ‘kid’ friendly… only if they are used to tough, mid distance hikes! Normal traffic flow is clockwise, leaving a slightly more gradual descent and flat last 2 km to end the hike. Have hiked this six times… worth it every time!
