Very good condition. We visited after a rain and it made the trail difficulty increase. Beautiful views and changing topography.

Fun hike to do with the kids. Well marked trail with option for an “adventure” trail. Kids loved that side trail. Trail has changed in the last few years so if you haven’t done it in the past five or so years the entrance has changed. Very popular trail go early for fewer people

The trail is not like it used to be, it has completely changed. The view is absolutely beautiful and the trail it self is nice. There is not much climbing and if you park on the road your car will be towed.

Great trail, the views up top and phenomenal! The trail is well worn, however many of the marking for the trail had seemingly been ripped off the tree from passers by. The trail has a few climbs, some pretty steep but over all isn’t pretty modest. One section does have wooden stairs. The hike would be pretty easily done by kids or elder adults with reasonable fitness. The cliffs from the top are very steep and a fall would certainly be fatal, so be careful when near the face, especially with pets and children.

Really good trail especially if you do the adventure trail part as well. The adventure trail can get tricky and, I would say, not for beginners. The lookout is worth the hike. Proper hiking shoes are a must as the trail is rocky.

Great views with a few steep parts

Nice trail. I recommend the adventure trail, yellow trail on the map, for those who want a bit more challenge. It's not hard if your used to hiking and some bolder climbing. The main trail goes to the same lookout but I find it more boring. I did the blue loop. You have a few more lookout on the blue trail but after the first few ones the rest have very similar view. The rest of the blue trail is mostly flat forest trail. I would pass the blue loop not missing much. Maybe go to the first few lookout on the blue trail and go back.

Beautiful trail , bit rocky in parts. Its not a hard trail but neither can be classified as easy. However anybody with moderate level of activity can complete this trail. Saw many kids and dogs in the trail too.

Great trail. Amazing view from the top. Worth every step.

Busy trail, amazing lookouts. I would consider it easy as the terrain is pretty even and so is the path.

Moderate trail. Wish we would have had the time to do the extra 5k. Recommend doing the whole 6 mile loop if you can. Take all the pics. Great views and a good adrenaline rush, especially if you don't do heights ;) Don't pass on this one.

As some one from the area originally I’ve climbed this trail dozens of times and it is quite fun. Plenty of different terrains for everyone with wonderful views of the island. Watch out for Massasauga Snakes as they are venomous and common in the area. Not the most clearly marked trail and definitely not the most leisurely hike either.

completed the Red Trail, there was some difficulty/ rock to climb but lots of breaks between. went one Lookout Into the Blue Trail which I believe is the best Lookout

So there is three parts to this trail the blue trail, the red trail, and the yellow trail. All parts make the trail 9.5 km. You start on the red trail which is 4km and includes all the lookouts, from there you can either go back or continue into the blue trail which is 5km and has no lookouts but is an easier hike in a lovely deciduous forest. There is a small trail that goes off of red trail called the adventure trail which what my favourite part. Has ladders and caves to climb into. But be warned, if you bring your dog, the adventure trail has a ladder you will have to carry it up (thank god mine is only 20 lbs). The red trail is extremely busy, even on a Wednesday! But only saw two other couples on the blue trail. Blue trail is much less marked but is obvious where to go. Took us 3 hours to do all 9.5km.

Nice trail! They changed it a little bit and the trail now starts from the highway approximately 2km to the west of the original one.

Nice trail with some variation. Much of it is through the forest on a well worn path. Some ascent required along the escarpment. Great views from the edge of the escarpment. Lots of options for shortening or lengthening the route by either taking the inland forest path and/or adventure trail.
