Great trail. Has some hills so my ice trax came in handy. Crossed some horses on our path. So many options for trail length and scenery.

This is the CPT Credentialed hike for BSA. Note it was youth led, so contains one small error in routing.

This recorded track more closely represents the actual Chief Pontiac Trail between the two organized group campsites in Proud Lake Rec and Kensington Metro Park. I make this statement based on the park trail maps and CPT trail markers located along the route. In any case I've hiked this trail a half a dozen times, each time gaining more insight about the trail, its beauty (and after making many wrong turns), its location/track.

Wonderful trail. You don't have to follow the red line the whole way, you can use the blue and black dotted trails also. Unfortunately it's not a loop so you gotta walk back to get back to your car. Not great signage to point you in the right direction, but AllTrails map plus GPS does the trick.
