Was looking forward to this trail all winter. It did not disappoint. All the reviews here pretty well sum up the trail. Moderate trail when going clockwise, be prepared for lots of elevation changes going up. It is worth it once you reach the top to the look off. Recommend ice cleats as there is icing spots along the trail and last half of hike is mostly down hill. Good view of the Nuttby windmills and Janes fall was frozen solid. Easily the best trail we have been on.Excellently marked out with info spots along the way. I like how these info spots where at the top of big inclines which gave you a breather to read them! Going to do it again this fall when the leaves change color. Must have hiking trail on anyone’s list.

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.

Lovely day out. Well marked with a nice place to have a picnic at the half way mark. Dogs had a great time

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.

Great little trail off the beaten path. It took us about 2.5 hours to complete. The scenery and views are great, and the trail is well marked out, definitely worth a stop.

This is a great hike for exercise with variable gradients and terrain. It even has a beautiful waterfall. No cellular coverage in area I would suggest hiking with a buddy.
