Rocky trail, views are amazing! Definitely worth it, especially considering it’s such a short hike. Part of the loop remains closed. Do note that in order to access the pictographs you have to climb down onto a small, sloped rocky ledge. It requires a degree of caution to avoid falling on the rocks and into the lake.

Amazing view, specially from the pictographs, the lookout to the lake is really nice. We went after rain and the rocks along the shore were dry. But on the way the rocks and roots were slippery. A short hike with an impressive history.

Eventhough part of the trail was closed... this trail is amazing.. A bit difficult at some points... can be tricky and steep! But once you get to the end point... the rock pictographs.. wow... amazing views and great experience!

Definitely worth a stop! Can be done pretty quickly and the tall rocks are pretty awesome to see. The actual pictographs can be difficult to reach as the waves sometimes crash on the rock making it slippery.

A worth while trail to do to see historical sites. Some areas slippery, but overall trail was good. Loop is currently closed due to stairs being broken.

Super easy trail for a moderately fit person. The water levels weren’t too high when I was there so that probably made that portion quite a bit easier. The pictographs can be tricky to spot as they’re pretty faded but still a beautiful sacred site. Worth the stop

Very pretty! Rough to hike for beginners because of the inclines and declines on the rocks. But, the view is worth it.

Good hike, pretty technical. Lots of rocks and roots to deal with. Hike it’s self is fairly short but lots to photography. A closed stair case between to rock cliffs. Pictographic’s at the end of it, this part is dangerous if the weather isn’t good- they are right in the edge of the rocks before the lake comes in.

This place to me is very breath taking with beauty. I felt like I was in a fairytale garden with all the greenery and rock formations. It was worth the 4 year wait. Keep checking water conditions as they are not always favourable to see the pictographs like the day I went. Still a must see.!!

This place is powerful. As soon as you enter the enchanted forest trail you feel as though you’ve entering another world. I went on a rainy day- the mossy narrow path was slick and misty with bits of sunlight sneaking through the treetops. The water was choppy but I was still able to sit directly under Mishipeshu for over an hour and I was the only one there. Look for the hidden path to get to the cliff directly above the pictographs. And don’t forget to throw tobacco into the water with your left hand while asking permission from the spirits who watch over the area to view the pictographs. They are there for you.

Gorgeous gorgeous views from the rocks, and plenty of areas to climb around and get spectacular views of the lakeshore and surrounding islands

This trail has some amazing scenery but is not easy. Just as you enter the trail, there is a warning sign , letting you know people have fallen to their death or have been seriously injured, so why is this is rated easy. It might be a short hike but there’s some tricky navigating. The diabase canyons and pictographs are the highlights. Wish they would put some sort of rail system to hold onto where the pictographs are located, it was wet and slippery when we went and didn’t get to see all of the pictographs because of the risk factor. I wouldn’t recommend bringing your dog to trail and there’s a sign saying no dogs.

Beautiful short hike ! Lots of guests swimming off the rocks, so if you're interested in that bring a bathing suit. I would also recommend running shoes so you don't slip off the rocks.

Not an easy trail for the passive hiker, elderly, or small children. Beautiful views of the Lake in the end. Really enjoyed this short hike.

Awesome! Make sure to bring good footwear and go on a day when the lake is calm to maximize your visit!

Hate to say it, the hike/trail and scenery was better than the pictographs. Still worth the trek down. Not an easy go to reach bottom. No taking granny down. If your in health and good knees, your good to go.
