HikingGreat!

Challenging ups and down lots of rocks and exposed roots. The views were great. At the top of the mountain the flora was waist high making for a very interesting landscape. Hiked clockwise around the well marked yellow trail and really appreciated walking the last km or so on the well groomed woods road to the parking lot.

Recently did this one on a perfect sunny week day. Only ran into one other person :) I did this trail clockwise and completed it in 1h45m. I'm not sure I would call it moderate. Moderate in relation to completely flat trails, but as far as hills go this one is so gentle! Gradual consistent upward slopes and gorgeous wildflowers. Incredibly peaceful hike.

Nice trail that is a mix between roots and rocks and has lots of changing elevations.

Great trail. Lots of rocks and exposed roots but it’s a well worn path.

Perfect trail for snowshoeing. Very well marked yellow trail. Look off spectacular and view of wind farm was amazing. Highly recommend this trail in winter and finish with maple infused brunch at Sugar Moon Farm.

Very nice trail and not difficult at all; a great length distance and time wise. Great mix of views and variety of forest growth. Lovely variety for birding. Saw a beautiful Mourning Warbler on the hike!

It was a beautiful day for a hike. Bugs were only bad when you stopped for too long. Would like to come hack in the winter to snowshoe.

Awesome trail. Moderate terrain with some steep sections - beautiful views. About 1foot of snow on ground when we were there - but well packed from other hikers.

Ok... for me a great trail consists of food, fun and fabulous views (or a waterfall). This trail has all three. At the base of the trail is Sugar Moon Farm. A log hut with roaring fire places, great coffee and very good maple butter covered pancakes. Then the hike, probably the best marked trail in Nova Scotia. Not too many markers and not too few. Lot's of uphill challenges (fun) and wonderful water features, especially Jane's Falls.This is a beautiful lace like fall in a grove that is likely 40 feet high. Man, it doesn't get much better. If your going this winter (i hope to) check for open hours at Sugar Moon.

A nice loop. We did it clockwise to get the steep ascents and descents out of the way whilst our legs were still fresh. Extremely well marked with a couple of great rest spots with a bench to admire the views. Informative signs along the trail make for a more interesting hike and providing you time your hike properly the Sugar Moon Shack cafe/restaurant awaits you with a welcome respite at the end.

Great mix of terrain, make sure you have good footwear as the trail is steep in multiple spots with lots of rocks and tree roots. The waterfall was pretty much dried up on September 3rd, but definitely going back in the spring to check it out!

Really great trail! Definitely moderate which is something we were looking for. There is a huge elevation to it which we found to add the perfect challenge. The trail is well marked and the terrain changes quite a bit so there was always something new to see. We were sure to have a hot apple cider at Sugar Moon Maple Farms to warm up after. It is a trail we would be happy to hike again.
