Have done this trail many times. It’s my favourite trail closest to Toronto! Hiked it yesterday, road is closed during the winter so add 2km each way to your hike. The sign at the trailhead says the trail is 10km but every time I have done it my devices have shown around 13km. In the snow yesterday it was about 16.5 km and took us 6 hours. Winter hiking is not my thing, but the trail is still fantastic! Highly recommend!

Finished the loop with 5 hours. Beautiful view made the whole hiking full of exciting. Very wet and uneven surface, rain boots or waterproof boots could be more helpful.

First half is best. Turn back at stop 5 for a good 2 hour hike. Took 4 hours to do the whole thing

Took 4 hours to complete the loop from car park - including breaks along the way. The ridges are beautiful and can be seen throughout the trail. There are various types of terrain, wet and uneven surfaces which makes this hike more challenging but it's not difficult. Proper footwear (trail running shoes or hiking boots) helps a lot.

The best trail on the highway 60 corridor in Algonquin. Beautiful vantage points overlooking the park.

Moderate to difficult hike. Took my husband and I 4 hours to complete. We went at a moderate pace but stopped a decent amount of times for long periods to take pictures and enjoy the views. We went the day after it rained so it was extremely muddy which I found made it more difficult. Lots of ups and downs but the views are well worth it!! the best views are towards the end of the loop.

I did this trail in the fall when the colours were at their peak. The views from all the look out points were amazing. By far the best day hiking trail in Algonquin but not an easy one. Be sure to bring plenty of water and some food.

This is the best day hike you can get in Algonquin Park. The views are amazing. Take some water and snacks. The trail is not easy.

Awesome hike with lots of excellent viewpoints and plenty of terrain variety from bogs to blue lakes to rocky Canadian shield elevated ridges with breathtaking lookout points. We are in our thirties and were able to finish the 10 Km loop in 3 hours including rest and stops at viewpoints (mind you we kept a quick pace and heard that it took 4 hours plus for some others). There are some challenging ascents but it is worth it for the views. This hike will give you a taste of all that Algonquin Park has to offer, enjoy!
