Old growth white pines!!! They are huge. As far as Southern Ontario goes to see a tree that wasn't logged in the 1900's is a very rare sight. The trail is quite easy except for the last little bit when there's a few large up and downs. The trail is quite packed down in winter hiking boots will suffice but it's always fun to strap on the snowshoes.
Big Pines Trail is a 2.9 km long, but is an easy enough trail to do. You are gifted with the sight of large white pines a long your hike of this trail
While this is a fairly short and easy 3km trail, you will find yourself stopping a lot to look up at these massive white pines - and maybe even hug a few! Love the interpretive guide and posts along the way that discusses the history of logging in park. You will also visit the remains of an 1800's logging camp. This trail is all about the view...of big pine trees. A must do when visiting Algonquin Park.
Nice quick, easy trail. The large white pines all a long the trail are very impressive.
