  • We visited on a tour. Under the sunny blue sky, listening to the description of a nature guide, slowly and enjoyed the gentle mountain. (Of course the conductor with) listening to the instructions while using the types of Maple and a simple English word or why leaves could learn while enjoying the views.

  • After a short about 15-20 minutes walking on a partly steep forest trail opens one a prime views of the surrounding mountains. We have the India summer with a 60-70% may experience discoloration, it is incredibly beautiful.

  • This uphill hike through the forest gets you to a panoramic cliff view of three lakes facing the western side of the park. The colourful leaves in autumn are a bonus. 
  • The trail was moderately difficult. Not super easy, but not too hard either. There was some rocky up hill climbing though. The view at the lookout was spectacular. Definitly one of my favourite trails in Alogonquin. Make sure to have enough water, and good hiking boots. Overall, I would most definitely recommend this trail!
  • Great view of the park. Nice place to syretch your legs after a long drive. Short trail but moderately difficult due to a rather steep descent.
  • Awesome view but bring good shoes to walk the steep slope. Bit of a climb up but worth the panoramic view.
  • Fairly quick trail. Nice spot for a quick stop off the highway.
  • Perfect for a short hike with a great payoff - the view is surprising given the relatively minor elevation gain.
