Loved this trail!! Some easy parts for our 1.5 y/o daughter to get out of the carrier to walk herself. Views were amazing ! Can't wait to go back.

The trail is good..easy to moderate with options of doing 6 km, 7 km or 14 km loops. The only issue we found is that it is not well marked. Aimed to do 7 km loop which covers both falls and Emerald Fitzgerald look out points. After reaching the falls, we got lost twice while trying to merge with trail leading to look out point and ended up coming back to point where hike bifurcates into lookout and falls trails and then went to lookout point, making it total 16 km hike (in retrospect, we could have aimed for 14 km loop in this case)

Nice trail. I would say the easy side of moderate. The falls were beautiful. It was fairly busy on the main trail but away from it all on the larger route. The trail could be marked better. Many trails branch off from the main trail that is mapped. Both visits here I struggled with direction. Missed the falls last time but the outlook this time lol

We did the loop that was 16 km. It had been raining so that part of the trail was serious bog and Joe pye weed over your head! Oh and the deer flies were happy to see us! The lookout and falls are great and a good spot for a fuel up and relax!

This is the full 14.5km Tower Lakes loop of the Lookout Trail. The section towards the middle is quite buggy and boggy and overgrown in sections, but it is a nice hike overall.

Fun trail with a few good spots to stop. There were some muddy spots and the trail can get pretty rough but all in all it was a lot of fun. Falls and the lookout were gorgeous.

Great hike that heads on both single track and double trail. Walking along the waterfall was absolutely stunning. We picnic'ed on a rock and soaked our feet in the waters flowing by. Great moderate to easy hike for those that want to spend a day outside.
