Great hike, but it can be a little confusing, there are many trails that lead off the main one. I started at the Whistle Lake p. lot at the info board. the trail start is a wide road. if you follow it straight, you end up at the lake, to get to the summit, you need to make a right at the wood out house, left at the map board and left again when the trail "t's", there's actually directional markers posted marking the way to the summit. it gets a bit steep after that, but we'll worth it. I recommend going early, I started at 9, very few people. Made it back down after noon and it was busy along the trail to the lake & no parking left.

If you do this trail as drawn, you're doing it wrong. Just continue on the track a bit further until you see the sign for Kenny Oaks trail on the left and take that. It will take you along 204 which provides beautiful views of Whistle Lake. The marked trail is pretty boring until you get to the top of Mt Erie.

A nice paved, dry trail leads to stunning view at the summit.
