I walked to Sandy Beach = 13 km in, Grey Owl's Cabin is another 7 km from there. Total trail distance there and back is 40km.

Incredibly well maintained trail; This hike is beautiful and takes you through a number of scenic locations and has a few well equipped campsites (with outhouses) along the way

Beautiful trail with great views of the lake!

Beautiful, easy trail to hike.

Great hike awesome views of the lake. The sand cliffs and then the purple sand beach are really something!!

Beautiful area. Usually quite busy due to proximity to town of Waskesiu.

Parks crews have done some work on the trail this year leaving behind dirt sections that get very muddy and slippery when wet. This was to remove old staircases. Hopefully they replace them or put down some gravel as these steep sections can be very dangerous! Beautiful trail though!

Another example of the fine work the Parks Canada staff do to preserve nature in its purest form. I was lucky to hit a windy day, which kept the bugs away. Only found blueberries around the Northend campsite, but ate a lot of raspberries along the trail. Left the trailhead parking lot at 3pm, arriving at 7:30pm and overnighting at the northend,, hiked the 3.8kms to Grey Owl’s cabin in the morning, then hiked out. Probably wouldn’t do that again as you have to keep a steady pace to do it in the day and a half I had available. Ideally, I think I would backpack all my gear to Sandy Beach, overnight, take a day pack to go to grey owls and back the next day, overnight again, then hike out. One would have more time to swim and soak up the solitude!! Highly recommend!

This is a very nice hike along kingsmere lake. There are four nice campgrounds along the way and parts of the hike are on sandy beaches along the way. Make sure you are prepared for bear and bugs.

I've hiked this trail in both winter and summer, and I probably prefer winter. It is so peaceful and beautiful in the winter, not to mention there are no bugs. Check out this video I made of hiking this trail in the winter | https://youtu.be/zdLbcf47BwU The trail starts off with an easy boardwalk through the woods, then crosses the river over a footbridge. This is one the most interesting spots on the trail. The remainder of the hike is wooded with gently rolling hills. It is a very easy hike, and a very accessible hike, so expect company on the trail.

Hiked this trail in the winter. Beautiful views. It was well traversed and easy to navigate. Would recommend for anyone looking for an easier trail!

Hiked it this morning. Great!

An amazing trail! Definitely more of a hike than some of the other ones which are quite flat. Quite a few stairs, the woods are beautiful, great views of the lake, and SO quiet and peaceful.

The boardwalk section is a wonderful scenic walk along the river, with lots of great vantage points for viewing the river and its abundant bird life. The loop through the forest is less interesting.

This trail is actually a loop. The quiet of the morning is a wonderful time to visit. Very steep climbs are encountered on the return leg, making parts of the trail more difficult than moderate.
