Difficult trail that seems easy at first, weaving through meadows and small hills. The following difficult sections make seeing agawa falls that much more worthwhile. Some of the biggest trees I've seen in Northern Ontario along the hike.

Awesome trail. I rate it as moderate to hard, if you continue past the first camp site it becomes quite technical and difficult inclines and narrow trails along steep cliffs into agawa river. Never underestimate this region of Ontario, come prepared. I stayed for a few nights in the autumn, rained lots and saw few people.

This trail was a $&@! Come prepared, come with time and camp out 1 or 2 nights. Right now the trail is wet, muddy, slippery, rocks roll under your feet and come out of the dirt as you grab for a handhold on the bouldering section. Dry areas on the way out became 2 feet of water on the way back. Water levels changed overnight and temps are low combined with a constant rain. Be safe.

We really enjoyed this trail. However, there are some VERY technical sections that I think make this more than a “moderate” trail.

This is a beautiful trail and is marked fairly well. The beginning/end hour are quite easy and a little boring but the terrain gets more difficult as you go on. I did this as an overnight camping trip and really enjoyed it. There are spots along the way you can stop to swim in and the view from the top of the waterfall is gorgeous. You could do it as a one day hike if you left early, however I think it would be more enjoyable to take your time and spend the night.

This epic trail offers many fishing opportunities along the Agawa River. Beware that the trail becomes a bit more rugged past burnt rock pool. Ive only done this trail as a overnight trip, but have heard of people making it a dayhike. I really enjoyed the beauty and challenge of hiking this trail. Asking park staff about current trail conditions is probably a good idea.

I would say the trail is a bit higher rated than moderate, although the beginning sections are quite easy. Trail is awesome and one of my favourites I've backpacked. Constantly having the Agawa river beside you and the agawa falls at the end are worth the hike.
