This loop has the hiker going up an old logging road, and then down the Little Pine Path. Beautiful hike. Cliffs to look off of. A view of Calabogie Forest. Rockclimbers and iceclimbers are here often. Great at any time of the year.

Worth the easy hike up in the warmer months and a snowshoeing trek up in the winter! Great little spot with the option to continue on to some tougher trails.

Beautiful hike! Very easy but can be made into a longer hike. Great view from the lookout. Beautiful fall hike with all the fresh leaves everywhere. Parking is across the street. Turn to the lookout isn't clear - I hike a bit too far and had to turn back so pay attention! Brought my dog on the trail and she loved it. Overall an easy trail with a great reward.

Was great, but we didn’t notice the part where you break off to actually head up to the lookout. We kept walking too far and ended up doing the entire loop back to the road, about 10k in total. I’d recommend keeping an eye on the AllTrails app while you’re going so you don’t miss the lookout spot. It’s only about a 15-20 minute walk from the road

Eagle Nest lookout is awesome. We parked at eagles nest, ascended on the logging road then took trail up to lookout. Descending we used the Pine Trail (something like that) which is a much nicer hiking trail along the ridge. This trail takes you back to the high way at Manitou Trail where you can walk the 400m back to the car. When I do it again I will use the Manitou Trail for sure!

Nice drive over from Ottawa-Gatineau, and the scenery is beautiful.

Pretty quick and easy hike/nature walk, but with an absolutely awesome view of the lake and swamp below, and drastic rocks hitting out.
Fantastic hike, and definitely worth the hour-ish drive from Ottawa!
Looks as if there’s lots of other great trails near it that I’ll definitely be checking out ASAP too!

Half of this trail from the Eagle's Nest to Manitou Mountain is an old logging road - watch our for dirt bikes and four wheelers. The other half connects the lookout to the highway and is a much more enjoyable hike! The lookout itself is beautiful and worth the hike from either direction.

Very accessible. The hike to the lookout is short but the view is very nice.

This trail is excellent for beginners and moderate hikers and offers excellent views of simply pure wilderness which for people from urban areas, this can be really refreshing.
