Poorly marked trail but marked nonetheless, just have to keep your eyes peeled. Once you pass the old logging road the trail is marked very well with ribbons and little inukshuks. Steep as hell but worth the climb. Definitely make sure to hike up to Brew Hut from lake for the 360 views.

This trail is beautiful once you start on the trail head, however you have to walk about 2.5 km on the train track from the Brandywine falls parking , south direction, to access the trail head. You have to bush walk to access the train track. If you blink you will miss the access to the trail. It is an extremely steep terrain, the use of poles is highly recommended. Because of time restraints, we turned around after 1 km of uphill. GPS a MUST!

This trail is really poorly marked. You spent 2.8 km heading out on an illegal route following along the CN railway tracks. Then the trailhead starts at this point to the right not very clearly marked. The trail is very steep from the onset. Very beautiful though. We turned around after 1/2 hour as we waisted so much time just getting to the trailhead. Almost 6 km of the hike is walking on a train track wondering where you will jump to when the next train comes along.

Ok trail, really rocky and really steep for a section or two. Brings you to a nice lake. Dont hesitate to park futher on the lug road.
