we rnjoyed this trail a lot, nice lookout, maps and marks are good, one of the favourits now in Halton.

This trail is on the moderate end of easy. It's easy in that the trail is fairly wide, but it's not something you'll be pushing your kid in a stroller through. A number of roots and rocks to watch out for, but the views are beautiful and worth it. 4 stars because we went on a hot day and though there was a breeze outside of the trail, it was quite warm with the trees blocking the wind.

Nice shady hike. Easy

This is my go-to and one of my favorite trails. It's hilly, scenic, and beautiful!You're in for a moderate hike/workout. It's not a looped trail but either end is a destination (if that's important to you), whether it is Rattlesnake Point for the view or Crawford lake for the lake.

I've hiked this trail dozens of times it's a great walk.

Definitely a challenging hike, because it ends in a different spot so you need to hike the whole thing twice! Rattlesnake point is a beautiful lookout, and the entire trail is well-marked, but there are no updates as to where you are, the the part close to the buffalo crag lookout seems to really drag on.

This is a well-maintained trail. I'm over 60 and this trail was easy - no idea how this gets a 'moderate' rating. There are very few rocks - you don't have to step on any if you don't want to, and there is certainly no required scrambling. The altitude change is very modest and not steep. Markings on the main trail near the start point are better maintained than secondary trails or the return trip.

Minus the mosquitos, great trail!

lots of shade, easy walk .

Beautiful hike! It was super busy near the trail head and the lookouts but fewer people further out. There terrain is pretty much the same the entire hike but would definitely recommend it. Not much for wildlife probably because of the volume up people but still worth it!

One of my favourite trails in the area. Nice incline midway!

For all you hikers, as well as Schitt's Creek fans, Pinnacle Lookout is where Patrick proposed to David. Very Cool...

Nice quiet trail with a very nice lookout. Easy trail for beginners. Wish it was longer though.

Great look outs with beautiful views!

lovely trail, very icy today but the views are still awesome

Great views! We went in January so there weren’t huge crowds. Maybe a dozen people passed in the 4 hour hike. Would definitely go again.

Out on this trail today with a friend; absolutely beautiful. Definitely very muddy in parts but completely tolerable if you’re wearing proper hiking shoes. Trails are well marked but make sure you’re paying attention and have time to go to Crawford loop - we went out in afternoon and didn’t notice we made wrong turn and ended up in Crawford trails (only planned on 7.8 loop) - our loop turned into a 16k - we started later in day so we’re worried about losing sunlight. That was our bad though and still a beautiful detour. Look forward to doing this again.
