La randonnée est agréable et la vue à l’arrivée est belle (on aperçoit les Flowerpot à l’horizon) mais une partie est fermée car elle est immergée.

Trail was great. Gravel to start and then rugged terrain. Lookout was a nice pitstop. Part of the trail was closed (the part that takes you nearest to the waters edge) so that was disappointing. Worthwhile hike.

Partially closed due to flooding. Nonetheless still beautiful and one of the best trails i’ve hiked.

Très beau sentier. Puisque l'eau est très haute, une partie du loop est fermé mais nous avons quand même réussi à passer sur des billots dans l'eau.

Excellent choices for swimming even with the crowds, have your water shoes. Otherwise a forest hike, very rocky lots of stubbed toes. part is closed due to high water. I'm from 2.5 hours away and frequent Georgian Bay but for those that don't the area is pretty spectacular. It's a shame that people need to play loud music even when hiking these days.

Really nicely shaded trail with a few very pretty lookouts. Options to go swimming.

got lost with the high tide, but finally found waterfront chill spot

Good leisure hike

Great alternative to the Grotto! I found the trail itself and the lookouts very similar to the Bruce Peninsula National Park, but with fewer people. I would definitely do this trail again.

Brought the dog and kids, lots of rocks and vines to climb and step over through the trail, the first lookout point you can climb down rocks to go swimming, clean clear water, very cold, and slippery rocks underneath.

loved this trail. Pretty scenic and fun with different terrain in different areas with multiple look outs. Would do this trail again

I would rate this trail as easy - can’t bring a stroller through her but a small child can easily walk the trail. It’s the only trail loop near the visitors centre so fairly busy. Nice views but not the most scenic in the area.

Great hike! Lots of ups and downs, lookouts are plentiful...terrain is rocky in some areas, a small bit of scrambling near the coast but not difficult.

Nice forest trail - not as much rock as some other parts of the Bruce trail so a bit of a break for your feet. The views are just OK though (compared to the elevated views from the trail section that starts at halfway log dump road).
