Hiked with family, total ten people, with four teenagers. Everyone had a good time. It was drizzling a bit, other than that, all was perfect. Some parts were quite steep and slippery, but the majority of the trail was well preserved. The lookout was amazing! Worth all the effort climbing up. We met many seniors along the way, who also enjoyed themselves with no difficulties. Already recommend this route to some friends.

Lovely hike, the trails are well maintained but they are shred with bikes and horses to be aware of your surroundings. There's lots of bugs, millions of them so bring spray and make sure you climb to the top of the stairs as the views from the top are stunning.

Fun trail with plenty of detours available. The directions lead you to a parking lot that may be full and requires payment. You might find parking along the road if you get there early enough. The start of my route is by the road and gives you plenty of choices which way to wander. Some slight challenges in spots but fun nonetheless. Plan to come back and try some of the other off shoots.

This trail takes a LOT longer to hike through that expected. It took my group of friends about 4 hours to hike the whole trail. The view from the lookout point is outstanding and you also get to pass by a little pond. The only downfall was our poor choice of visiting a week after the April 2018 snowstorm in Ontario - all the snow was melting faster than the soil could absorb it, leaving us to trek through large amounts of very deep puddles. Despite that, it was an amazing experience and I’d love to explore it again!

It's longer than it looks. The access up is a switchback style trail and not great if you have problems climbing. Great view. Lost of different types of berries from gooseberries to blackberry and even some grapes planted years ago that flourish.
