I hike quite a bit. The trail says easy, not an 'easy' trail. You will be climbing up and down the Canadian Shield. Many areas will be steep. This trail has absolutely stunning views, worth the hike up!

Such a beautiful trail! My favourite one in Killarney. Loved walking through the magical looking pine forest, looked like a fairy tale. And the views from the ridge were absolutely beautiful. We hiked it just after it rained and the colours of everything really popped! You get amazing lookout views for not too much effort, and I liked the forest scenery better than other trails in the area. Definitely recommend this one!

A spectacular view for very little effort! Make sure you walk all around once you get to the top to get all the views.

I was really surprised at the beautiful views, especially overlooking the bay. Can be done pretty fast. A few rocky areas that could be challenging for anyone with mobility issues. Bugs aren’t as bad in the afternoon and in the open lookouts.

Great trail for the novice hiker. I went mid morning July, bugs were terrible I the forested parts but bug spray kept them at bay. Did the trail in just over an hour, with time spent at the beautiful scenic look out points

Great trail. Some nice wooded walks and rocky sections to climb. A nice view from the lookout. We saw grouse and raccoons on this trail.

Two or three beautiful look out spots. Our 6 and 8 yr old daughters hiked it with us. Went in January. Lots of hard pack snow made the hike possible with boots. Snow shoes not required. Took us 1.5 hrs.

I wouldn't describe this trail as easy overall. There are easy sections, especially the beginning and the end, but some of the scrambling around rocks near the top was a bit challenging. Nothing too tough, but I would rank part of the trail moderate for sure. Beautiful vistas from the top. We loved the view of Georgian Bay and the islands.

Very nice trail! Takes about an hour to do and there's a nice old car in the woods about 10mins into the hike. Pretty cool to see:) Beautiful views especially if you explore abit off track !

muddy and soft in some spots when you start off but nothing you cant walk around. bugs are a pain in the butt when the wind dies down, LOTS of mosquitos. and the blueberries are starting to come out!

Amazing view once you reach the top. I would recommend doing this one first before others. Seeing the others takes away the wow factor. Still a gorgeous trail.

Good hike, the old car was cool. Views of the la cloche range from the top.

We did not choose a good time to hike this trail. For the first 10 minutes of walking, the trail was very muddy and had at least 4 or 5 huge puddles that we had to go around. The mosquito situation was also a little difficult to handle (I never use bug spray and I usually do just fine without it, but that time I really wish I had some!) I have to say, though, that the view of La Cloche mountain range from the top of the hill was so exquisite it was all worth it. Definitely re-doing it at the end of summer.
