Great hike could be better marked from hwy as it looks like somebody’s driveway at first. View from the top is beautiful. Easy hike if for your fur baby’s also. Would be amazing in the fall colours time.

Great winter hike with stunning view! Made me say “wow” out loud coming out of the trees.

Could be marked a little better. Fortunately there was a pretty freshly laid snowmobile trail there for me to follow. Other than that, fantastic. Another gem in the heart of Nova Scotia.

Did this trail about 3 weeks ago. Excellent trail with gorgeous views of the fall colors. Signage could be a little better.

Very steep incline at the bottom that lasts until you're about 1/3rd of the way up, but then it levels out and is a very pleasant hike to the top. Beautiful views - especially during the fall!

Great little trail with a spectacular view at the top. You can see confederation Bridge and Prince Edward Island from the top view. Steep up hill climb via an old logging road. There are direction signs but they are faded . Great October hike when the leaves are the most colourful.

The view alone is worth the climb. I would agree that it's a moderate trail. Well marked. we hiked over to the top of the ski Hill which was also a nice hike.

A rainy day but truly worth it. Relatively easy hike with some very solid climbs.
