Good trail to go with friends. Different paths provide variations of difficulty to suit the needs and skills of everyone. Don’t recommend doing this in the winter time or in cold conditions. The trail is mostly on a hill and paths will be icy in the winter time and at cold temperatures. Prepare for a long and vigorous hike since it is on a hill. The look off at the end is well worth it (overlooking Antigonish harbour) and the top provides lots of open area to camp, have a fire, and relax.

Well marked trail. Nice mix of terrains too. It can get a bit swampy in the lower parts.

An very beautiful trail, awesome hemlock old growth stand and excellent view of Antigonish Harbour from the top. A very nice 2-4 hour hike pending trail selection.
