Perfect Pukaskwa ! There are no words to describe this stunning coastal walk. Tried a day hike since it was my first time at the park. Easy signage to follow. Off the beaten path for some sections. Made it past the suspension bridge close to Cook Falls. Stunning views and diverse ecosystems along this first stretch. Spotted a moose and her baby feeding in the marsh. Bald eagles spotted near the bridge. Sturdy shoes highly recommended. Bring snacks. My highlight was walking through the majestical jack pine forest. The forest floor was covered with bright green moss. Something out of a fairy tale.

Beautiful views, nice trail. Add on the Manito Miikana spur - it was the highlight of my hike. Didn’t think much of the Halfway Lake Loop though; don’t add it. Good swimming spots in warmer weather. Had the trails to myself in the hours after sunrise on a Sunday morning.

Just completed!! Started at White Gravel River and finished at Hattie Cove. The weather was wet and cold and the trail definitely challenging. Wet rocks, waist deep river crossings and muddy bogs made it difficult but I cannot be more happy that we did it! The majestic vistas are incredible, trails clearly visible and campsites clean and well maintained. I feel incredibly fortunate to have access to such an amazing wilderness experience in our backyard!!

Hiking

This trail is NOT 16km. Its 24.2km including the necessary hike to the trailhead (along the coastal trail). If you're looking for a combination of cross fit and hiking, this trail is for you. The amount of deep spontaneous mud pits, drift wood balance beams suspended over the bay, and a horizontal wall climb to avoid swimming in a bog (that was the trail) was enough to almost make me yell parkour! But not wanting to scare the wildlife, I resisted. Being a part of the coastal trail one would think you would be inundated by views of the water but 95% of the trail is forest. Don't get me wrong, when you do see the water it's like a glimpse into paradise. Wildlife sightings were frequent, including multiple grouse, various other birds, mice, rabbits and a mink! If you're up for it, the suspension bridge, which adds 2.2 km, is a great addition to this trail. Overall, a great trail, but come prepared!

Easy trail to hike, fun for the whole family. Bring a camera as you’ll see some of the best Pukaskwa views. Trail is well marked. Two options for the loop or a return to the beach

Went point-to-point using boat shuttle to North Swallow Bay (Aug 3-7, 2020). Rocky coast sections were super fun and the views of the lake are amazing. Trail was easier to follow than expected - well worn in forest sections and lots of rock cairns to follow when there's no visible trail. I lucked out with weather (and almost no mosquitoes!!) so I finished early each day. Could have cut this down to 3 days instead of 5 (keep in mind that it is a challenging hike), but if it was rainy/wet, I could see the hiking times doubling. WSH1, FC1, FH3, and CHF2 were my sites and they are all awesome (best ones at those stops for sure). Stop at the sites with sandy beaches - when the weather is nice, it's a huge perk.

HikingGreat!MuddyRocky

Reached this trail from Middle Beach and climbed up for a perfect sunset view (Manito Miikana trail). Beautiful, steep in parts, narrow, mossy and muddy trail up to the top of the rock, with lots of interesting nature sights along the way. Worth it, may be tricky with kids.

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.
