A steep climb leads to a beautiful panoramic lookout over the Eastern part of Lake Laurentian. The trail then runs along the shore and back up for lovely ridge views, before descending to where the easy Point trails separate into Loop 1and Loop 2.

What a trail! It starts with a steep climb uphill, but you are rewarded with some spectacular views of the lake. Up and down beside the lake, be careful not to slip on some of the steeper portions of the trail. The good stepping spots are juuuust far enough apart to make it tricky. We completed Loop 2, and it was pretty overgrown. Most of this section of the trail was waist high bush with a narrow path, but the path was still very easy to follow.

A short climb to a nice lookout then you descend to the two point trail loops. Loop one is more forested than loop 2 which has more shoreline trail. Both are a little overgrown at the time of year. Beautiful views of the lake and wildlife. Excellent trail if you are looking for something shorter than the full lake loop but with the similar views.

A great trail for our family. There was enough of a climb to make it feel like we got some exercise, without being too steep or technically challenging to hike with a baby strapped to my chest. There were lots of lookout points which made the walk feel very rewarding, too!
