Had a beautiful day to hike this trail. Trail is well marked, muddy in spots but definitely passable. Scout trail was challenging with the large rocks and the fallen leaves are a bit slippery - was glad I had my hiking poles. Will definitely hike this trail again.

We did the blue and red trail and started with the blue and ended with red. The start was quite steep and it only took 15 minutes to reach the best view on the hike. Amazing view of the lake! The hike only took an hour but it was a quick burn to the top followed by slippery rocks on the way down. I had good hiking boots on and still almost bailed a few times haha. Nice hike overall

Amazing views! challenging hike in places, steep inclines and declines lots of roots and rocks. Fun and satisfying. The first look off was especially beautiful.

Challenging terrain and elevation at times, but totally worth it to see the views of the Whycocomagh Bay. Good colour coding signage to know you’re still on the path, but no maps on the trail to know how far you’d gone.

Easier hike going counter clockwise. Different ecosystems. Three great vistas of Bras D’ors Lakes. Rocky trail, lots of roots.
