Rather easy trail, good to do with the kids. Nice water lands along the way that make for a few nice pictures. The hike starts at the intersection of the Huron trail (blue square #3) and Ridge road. You will come across a few intersections with other trails, such as #20. The trail up to the lookout is Black diamond #28. Don't be frightened by the black diamond. The trail gets steeper, but remains very accessible. Instead of going strait up to the lookout, why not continu on trail #3 until you reach the road, and then turn around to come back. This will give you a few extra km on your hike and lead you through some nice water lands. The distance to the road is 5 km. The trip there and back, plus the lookout, totals out to about 11-12km and can be done in 3h (that is with breaks to take pictures and enjoy the view). The lookout would be a nice spot to have lunch!

Great walking trail with plenty of elevation and great views. Walked it once then ran it.

Well maintained trail. Lots of nice little creeks and a beautiful waterfall to see along the way. There is a bit up climbing uphill but nothing too bad. I enjoyed this trail a lot.

Short hike but really cool to see the ruins, for sure! Great photo op!

It's an enjoyable trail, particularly good if you're short on time. You can easily link to another longer trail if you need a bit more of a challenge after getting to the ruins.

Nice challenging trail through forest and clearings. Make sure you have bug spray. Parked at P12 by Meech lake followed trail 40 to trail 24 and 1B making a stop at Western (there are washrooms there :) then followed 1B to the Champlain lookout to enjoy the view. Trail 1B to trail 2 back to P12. Enjoyed it and will do it again.

c'est bien pas trop dure avec la famille, belle randonnée en forêt avec des points de vue intéressant dont la chute qui doit être belle au printemps

wow, je l'ai fait en automne mais doit y retourner en été car l'eau doit être plus clair encore mais tranquille comme endroit reconnecte avec la nature
