This was a nice moderate trail that took us just under 7 hours to complete at a leisurely pace, with a few stops. Highly recommend walking the extra 0.9 km to the Gorge once you’ve reached the top. The view is exquisite (just don’t get too close to the edge)! The first 8 km from the parking lot are pretty flat and boring, so if you have the possibility, take your bike (though the trail is quite rocky, fair warning). Took us about the same amount going up to come down and overall was an enjoyable hike (with a few sore feet to remind us of the journey). :)

my dog and i did this one a rainy day hence why it was muddy. we walked the entire distance but highly recommend biking the first 6km, there is a bike lock up before entering the stairs. when you see the red sign saying trail closed due to rocks falling, etc, continue straight through. was a bit confused at that point. awesome view with friendly people throughout trail.

After the relative easy flat beginning for about 6 km to get to the Sawyer Bay, the trail gets 'Extreme'. Straight up for 1.7km, covering elevation change of 1550 ft! Pretty view and the sense of accomplishment is worth the climb. The trail is lightly travelled, with really nice picnic stops on the Sawyer Bay.

Easy hike until the trail to the top where it gets quite steep at times. Bugs along the path were quite irritating. Great view at the top though. Took about 4 hours on foot with a few breaks.

I regretted not bringing bikes and riding as far as Sawyer Bay. This will save a lot of time. Very nice view at the top. I'd say the climb was a little more steep or difficult than Top of the Giant and Top of the Giant had more and better views but Head Trail still worth the hike. There is no place to pay at the main parking lot so make sure you pay at main office about 5k before the trail start. The hike is rated moderate but if you compare to many other hikes in this site that are rated moderate, I'd say it should be rated hard.

if you can bike from the parking lot to trail head - do it! Still a manageable hike but that 6k trail in/out is long to finish your day. The gorge is worth it no doubt though!

Rewarding views at the end of this hike. Biked the first portion on Kabeyun Trail, this took just under an hour. Lots of rocks and muddy in some parts, there were a few stretches I had to walk my bike. The hike to the gorge took a little over an hour. The path was well traveled, lots of hikers on a Saturday. Including time spent at the top, 4.5 hours round trip. Brought lots of water and snacks, used a lot of bug spray.

Great trail if you want to challenge yourself. Trail takes around 7-8 hours to complete, but rewards you with amazing views and photos!!! Would totally recommend.

Took me and my husband a little over 4 hrs to do this hike. ( not including the 30 min break at the top and 15 min break at the bay). The hike up is definitely tough, but worth the views! Would recommend hiking sticks for the steep up and down from the top.

A great hike for people who can hike great distances and elevation. The hike was about 14 miles round trip and took me 7 hours. Most of the trail is flat. The climb is hard and steep, but well worth it when your get to the top. Trail marking isn’t good. Make sure to bring a map.

I did this trail with my 4 girls ages 9, 11, 13 & 16. We went all the way to the gorge. Was an amazing accomplishment for all. They did really well. The hardest part was the last 6 km out. Every bend we took we hope for the parking lot. It felt so long after 18 km of excitement. It took us 6.5 hours with a short lunch at the gorge and a pit stop to skip rocks and make inukshuks by the water on our way out. We are all pretty active and resilient so it could take others longer. We were very tiered, sore and thirsty with only one bottle of water each for the trip. Wanted to keep it light since I had a cooler bag lunch packed for all of us. Be ready with water for when you come back and have a really great rewarding dinner planned. Amazing challenging trail! Amazing stay at sleeping giant Marie louise provincial park. Want to go back for the head trail.

Did the hike July 6 2019 it is an extreme hike as the last chunk was steep uphill. But people of all ages, shapes and sizes were on the hike, tough but doable and the "juice is definitely worth the squeeze."

Incredible views from the Top of the Giant. The last couple of kms are pretty much straight up, steep, tough climb, but absolutely worth it! Bugs aren't too bad, as long as you keep moving. Lots of shade.

Absolutely beautiful! Biking the first 8km helps, lots of bug spray needed from 7-10am, and don't skip out on the gorge - go right to the end, you will not regret it!

choice to drive or hike up to the top! beautiful Lookout with amazing scenery along the way.

Long hike with some steep sections. Did this trail in 2012 over Labor Day weekend. The talus field by the lake was fun to pick your way through. Incredible views of Lake Superior. Definitely was sore after this hike!

Would say this is more of a walking trail rather than hiking as it is well kept! We unfortunately went on a rainy day last year in the summer so we didn’t get to enjoy the beach as much as we would have liked to! Will definitely return on a sunny day this year!

This is a great moderate hike. Mostly shaded by trees with a couple open spots. It’s quite muddy at this time so I would make sure you are comfortable with going off the path into the bush to get around large mud puddles. The trail isn’t super clearly marked so I’d sure to not go too far from the path. There is a small lake at the end, a little bit swampy. The trail looks like it needs to be cleared as there are quite a few trees down but it’s manageable to jump over or walk around them. Overall a good hike though.
