I really enjoyed this trail! Perfect length & difficulty level with a nice lookout in the middle of the trail. We did have to refer to this app for the gps trail map to ensure that we were going the right way, if we didn't have the gps, we definitely would've gotten lost! It would help a lot of the signage was better on this trail

Took 2 kids on this trail and it was perfect for my 5 & 7 year old. The lookout is amazing and the trail is fun and technical enough to keep kids interested. Perfect length too for a morning or evening jaunt.

Very nice trail once we found it. Need better signage. Lots of signs for bikers. No one on the trail so it was quiet. Found Wild raspberries & bog irises.

Was very difficult to find the beginning of the trail, still never ended up finding it. But did the high lake trail and found some part of it so went from there.

Got to the high point of the trail and the view was great!

Just had terrible signs. I kept drifting off of the path and into the mountain bike trails.

Just did this hike during spring (Late April) so there were still patches of snow on the ground. Temperature was about 18c which made perfect hiking temperature. You might have difficulty finding the trail head so just stop in at the Falcon Lake resort chalet or canteen and ask one of the friendly staff. The beginning of the hike is mostly on a back service road which eventually brings you to an easy to follow path that moves through the trees over top of the rocky Canadian Shield. This brings you to an overlook of falcon lake with a bench at the top. Great view for a packed lunch or snack. The second half of the hike is slightly longer, still through the trees until you get back to the service road you were once on. Overall an enjoyable hike, quite manageble for beginner hikers or children. A leisurely hour long hike with some slight elevation and a great view at the top.

It was difficult to actually find the trail. Ended up in the bush and eventually finding the path. Needs to be marked better. The trail itself is alright. Just a gravel path.
