Perfect trail for a Sunday afternoon. No bugs. If you go outside of the regular season, there's no charge.

We were camping at Charleston Lake Campground (highly recommend) when we decided to do this trail - it was AMAZING! Lots of beautiful forest and rocks and water on the way up, and at the top there's an absolutely breathtaking Lookout/view of the bay! It was definitely a moderate-difficult hike, but well worth it. :)

Trail was well marked and easy to follow, even with all the ups and downs. We took the east trail, going towards Slim Bay Bridge, and what we observed this was the easier direction around the loop, and greatly suggest it.

Nice trail - lots of different terrain with several interesting look off points. Quite a bit of elevation gained and lost so a good workout over the distance. It would be very buggy in the warmer weather - some real swamp areas to traverse. A couple of good places to go swimming if you're inclined - bring a suit, not private enough to skinny dip :(

Met a 6' long Black Rat snake en route as well as an unaccommodating porcupine. We diverted off the trail for him.

Trail is well maintained and marked but it is narrow in places and a bit treacherous with rocks and roots. I recommend proper footwear and sufficient fitness.

Current (2017 Fenix 5 Sapphire) GPS technology put this at 11.2 km and 341m elevation gained for what that's worth.

Downside is area is frequented by motorboats so it can be noisy.

We stopped a few times and diverted to Slim Bay picnic site for a break - all in,

Bridge was removed so trail was closed July 23rd 2017. You could cross with a canoe and do the hike. This trail is part of Ontario Provincial Park so 14.50$ day pass fee is needed unless you camp at the campground.
