Definitely a full day hike but well worth it. be careful what time of year you go, my group and I got in between a mother bear and her cub in late Spring!! Always remember you're in THEIR home! but spray and bear bells are very important.

great trail in Fall and during a storm. well marked, very muddy.

This is a beautiful, well-maintained trail. The roots and rocks can get a bit slippery in the rain, so if it's wet, hiking poles might be helpful. The park maps and trail signs list the peninsula portion of the hike as "Manito Miikana," so keep that on mind if you're also orienting with trail signs. This hike, combined with the Southern Headland trail, make for spectacular views that don't take too long to traverse. Stunning area!!!

This is a great little hike with absolutely stunning views. We saw no trail markers, but the trail was made clear with the odd information plaque, steps, or in one place, a set of bright, red Muskoka chairs, overlooking the most staggering view. I highly recommend this hike.

amazing!!

We made the part from the visitor center to the suspension bridge. The hike was difficult morally because there are a lot of muddy passages with very large puddles and mosquitoes (even with good protection it was a nightmare). The trail is mainly in the forest, it is quite slippery, there is a passage in swamps that is really beautiful and pleasant. The passage of the bridge is very beautiful to see. We could observe eagles in a nest.

A beautiful hike! Keep your eyes on the ground and you’ll spot some arctic alpine plants thanks to the unique climate Superior creates. The White River Suspension Bridge is a real treat at the end!

I took an early morning stroll around this little loop and was in awe of how beautiful and peaceful it was. Excellent way to start the day!

Beautiful views of the lake and coves asking this trail.

August 3-9, 2018 pukaskwa Costal Trail Hike. The Pukaskwa Costal Trail is very challenging and rugged 60km wilderness trail. There are no trail markers and you need to follow rock carins to stay on course. The only road access is at the campground at Hatti Cove from where I took the boat shuttle to the end at North Swallow and hiked my way out. I have been wanting to hike this trail for a number of years and finally resolved to do it for my 50th birthday. The Costal Trail Hike was truly a trip of a lifetime for me. This was my longest backpacking trip and setting out to do it solo was a challenge in itself. I can tell you that this trail does not come close to touching anything that I have hiked before. The hike was phenomenal. Every aspect from the physical challenge to the spectacular views and incredible campsites completely blew me away. I met some awesome people on the trail and left with a feeling that it was a great privilege to spend the time in such a special place.

Also known as the White Water Suspension Bridge Trail. 7.8km hike each way. Beautiful trail with varying types of terrain and scenery. Difficult route, be prepared to climb over a lot of rocks. Most difficult part is within the first/last 4.5km (as it is a there and back route). At 4.5km point is a backcountry campsite right on the water that is beautiful. Great break point. The suspension bridge overhanging the falls/rapids at the end is absolutely breathtaking and made the whole experience worth it! Did this hike at the end of May so we were the only ones on the trail, however, if you plan to camp, Pukaswa is very cold that time of year!

Relatively new trail that branches off the Coastal Trail in Pukaskwa National Park. Being new it had marker ribbons instead of proper blazes, and parts were newly cut vs. being well-worn. First part of trail is easy-to-moderate but in the loop section you're faced with challenging climbs up massive granite out-crops. At the top get ready for some amazing views of Lake Superior and smaller surrounding lakes, rivers, and valleys.
