  • Great hike, with a lovely view. Dog friendly, and family friendly.
  • For those wondering the lookout point is 1km north west from the lookout point trail marker. The trail is a 2.1km loop trail. The trail is quite steep at points. Not suitable for people with joint issues. Also not suitable after rain, as it will get muddy and slippery. Anyway, I went there late in the day and saw beautiful sunset.
  • A young woman in Huntsville recommended we hike this trail if nothing else. She was right. The 2km trail rewarded us with a terrific vista. Bring bug spray. Watch for roots. There are steep inclines.
  • One of the best Trails in Algonquin Park. Amazing views throughout the year. Autumn is the best, but gets crowded.
  • great trail with beautiful view and medium difficulty to reach the top. you will sweat through climbing the hill but not very long. then you can enjoy a bird's eye view of the landscape! we just went there yesterday and saw 20% fall color.
