Great hike with spectacular views. Many up and down elevations can be hard on people with knee or lower back issues. Being hiking poles if needed. Also has area for rock climbing off the water. Campsites are nice but no firewood around. Great for swimming and has areas to cliff jump. lookout is a half hour to 45 minute hike.

Trail is well marked (follow the yellow flags otherwise you're on a side trail); it's an out and back trail.

Would have not been possible without a mosquito net/hat. Well marked trail with a lot of elevation change.

Many areas of the trail are flooded due to the rain and a few industrious beavers. Some trail signs are missing causing some confusion as to the trail route when going around the flooded areas. Overall a good trail saw moose track's and unfortunately deep ruts caused by a atv

I'll agree with some of the other comments the trail is confusing. first I went to what clearly looked to be a trail with the signs but that just takes you to the water.
The trail begins by the pavement on the road. So mc crae crae you made me crae crae today. but the views are worth it.

I 100% recommend this. Hike far enough to get to Georgian Bay. It is stunning.

Fantastic trail. A bit obscure with the signage. We couldn't find the parking lot (mostly because it's off the on ramp for the 400 and there was no signs telling us that's where it is) but we managed to access the trail from a snowmobile trail entrance. Beautiful scenery and breathtaking colours.

This trail is beautiful but the lack of signage made this trail a bit of a nightmare. We had NO clue where the yellow markers were taking us so we ended up turning back the way we came. If McCrae Conservation would like people to enjoy this trail I recommend putting a picture of the trail at the start with how many kms it is. If they don't want people to enjoy it keep it the way it is.

Was going to try this hike but was unable to find it. If it is somewhere around here there are no signs.
