I have hiked this trail every year for the last 25 years. It is as good a short trail as you are going to find. There are great views of Georgian Bay. Bring a bathing suit, there is great swimming along the way. The trail is easy, can be a flip-flop hike.

Somewhat dog friendly, a few tricky parts but my Bernese Mountain dogs did ok. Fall colours were beautiful. No bugs but it’s also colder out.

Nice trail to experience the rocky beautiful landscapes typical of georgian bay shores. Great trail with a dog. Rather highly trafficked for September, though it was a Saturday. I would rate it as easy-moderate.

Beautiful views of Georgian Bay. Completed in 2hrs with several stops for photos. Dry day end of August. Trails were great for 2 inexperienced hikers. Some more challenging hiking over certain rocky areas but doable if you take your time to find your footing. Definitely not just a stroll on a flat trail but the adventure, exercise and scenery were worth the effort.

Half the trail is forested and shaded, while the other half involves climbing up and down rocks with some great vantage points of the water. Reasonably well-marked. We were able to complete it less than 2 hours.

Beautiful views of the Georgian bay. Some parts can be rocky, not recommended for anyone with mobility issues, but not to difficult otherwise.

Well marked trail, but paying attention is critical (we had one backtrack required). Would not recommend when wet, as much terrain over smooth sloped stone. Great swim/snack/water spots when you reach Georgian Bay. Would rate higher towards moderate due to micro and macro elevations, and "rooty" areas in valleys.

Boardwalks not in good shape. Rocks quite slippery after rain night before.

Nice and easy hike. Trails are well marked. Trail from George lake camping area A is 10 min bike ride.

Very beautiful view of Georgian Bay! Well worth the hike! However the trail isn't well marked in the very rocky areas. Quite a few of the boardwalks on the way out have also fallen in disrepair (several nails missing or sticking out of the wood, & several planks are loose or rotten).

Beautiful rocky trail with a gorgeous lake view (perfect for a lunch/water break, or a quick swim). Forested trail has a lot of roots in parts, so watch your feet. Rocky area near the midway part of the trail could be marked better.

If you want to experience a classic Canadian shield trail I would do this one. The geology of the rocks is very interesting and the view of Georgian Bay when you get to the end of the trail is serene. The terrain can be a bit uneven so I would rate the trail as moderate for young children although my 6-year old daughter was able to manage. Bring snacks and water so you can linger and enjoy the views of the Bay.

Het was prachtig, als er een paradijs bestaat dan is dat hier. Op de een na laatste dag in Canada hebben we de mooiste en leukste trail gelopen.
