It’s a really good trail overall, however when we went to the different trail, so many snakes we found on that trail, I just can’t remember the name of the trail.

Très fréquenté mais vaut le détour !

belle rando bien balisée et aménagée. Toilettes sèches grandes et propres au quai et au phare. Pour flâner sans prendre un autre sentier au retour deux heures et demi suffisent. Départ 11h retour 14:55. Eaux limpides et...glaciales.

Good fun trail, a few rocky sections that were semi difficult to traverse but enjoyable.

Definitely a must if visiting the Tobermory area. Easy to moderate hike depending how adventurous you like to be. Can be a very busy area. Many beautiful sights along the way.

We found the mountain/marl portion of the trail a nice change from the flat, wide trail closer to the water. Stairs help with the steeper areas. We saw several groups struggling with the roots and rock slabs there. It’s easy for sure but as you head deeper into the island you’ll be surprised if you’re expecting a mindless stroll.

La première partie de randonnée sur levied de l’eau vers les flower pots et le phare est très belle. Les deux autres sections (Mountain Trail et Marl Bed Trail) sont dans la forêt et moins intéressantes, à l’exception de quelques belles roches pleines de mousse dans la a Mountain Trail.

Great little trail. The glass bottom boat or the zodiac will bring you to the island. Spending as much time as you might need. Lots to explore. Really lovely.

We visited this island a few years ago . Kind of costly if your just going for a hike . I could not believe all the garbage that people had left , it was disgusting . Wildlife way too friendly , actually pestering us for snacks . Lots of snakes , had to watch our step in spots . Other than the garbage it was nice .

When we went the hiking was good for the majority of the trail. The cave was closed, light house closed as was the trail to the light house. So 3✡ is all I can give.
