This was a nice trail to complete; moderately/easy hike. I had no complaints about the trail maintenance and the stream (little falls) is pretty. It was not heavily trafficked which is what I prefer.

Leisurely walk, with nice views in the fall.

Great trail! Loaded with ripe blueberries and black bear! Came across two mothers with their cubs in separate occurrences. Gets your adrenalin pumping for sure. A great mix of about 6' wide trails and then lots of thicket. Highly recommended.

Nice, relaxing walk. Kids and dog friendly trail.

Perfect quick hike if you have small children. Lush with ferns and giant rhododendrons. Flat terrain.

Did Bruce lake trail to West Branch Bruce trail back to parking... 7.25 miles. Trail starts out wide and then narrows to a deer path. Good hike! Warning: wear long pants the path is overgrown and narrow!

Nice easy wide well maintained trail for hiking.

Great afternoon walk

Nice place. Will get back there in the spring/summer time . For those who afraid to get wet their feet - on the north part of the Egypt Meadow Lake - no bridge, and you have to walk across the stream. In summertime it must be fun.

8.2 miles beautiful hike some parts by the lake could be muddy especially after rain

Awesome trail on a fall day

A nice quick hike very easy to do. Very scenic. In season, it is full of blackberries & huckleberries. In winter, have done a snowshoe hike with some beginners. Plenty of benches around the loop to sit with hot cocoa & enjoy the scenery.
