Very leisurely stroll through some fairly nice woods. Definitely not a hike, and not many viewpoints or points of interest. But would be good for wheelchairs or strollers etc.

Just walked the first part of the trail from p17 (trail 53) - about 3.5 km in and then back - with my 7 year old. As I only did part of the route perhaps my 3-star rating is a bit low (I never got to Lac Philippe) Was mostly pleasant forest with gentle up-hills. The trail was quite wide and is under repair due to recent flooding. A decent amount of mountain bikers but they were always respectful.

Great view, especially in the fall.

Went midday during Fall Rhapsody and it was pretty busy but less so on the actual Skyline loop. There are two fairly decent sized free parking lots at the base and many other connecting trails all around.

This trail is nice as it follows Lac Phiippe and the fall colours are very pretty. A couple of negatives though:
1. The crowds! I was hoping that because the trail is in the Lac Philippe sector and not off the champlain parkway it would be less busy this time of year (October). Nope! Very busy. So you never get that true you-alone-in-the-woods feel.
2. In the fall they close the road at Breton beach. That means you have to walk through a series of beaches before you get to the trail. Of course the walk is also pretty but it would be nice if they left the road open all the way to parent beach so half the walk wasn't actually the walk to the trail.
Still, overall, very beautiful fall colours up here and the lake itself is nice
