  • This is actually a pretty challenging hike. Couple that with insane amounts of mud (especially near Mizzy lake), with roots and rocks almost constantly through the forest portion of the walk and it ca...  more »
  • I made this beautiful and impressive trail alone, I thought I'd do a brisk demanding following what marked on the guide but actually turned out to be a space of three hours.

  • This trail is very rugged and is best enjoyed if you're prepared - mentally and physically. It gives you a taste of everything - streams, lakes, wetlands, boardwalks, an old rail trail, and the very r...  more »

  • The best hwy 60 corridor trail for wildlife viewing... Only few sections in the beginning and before the end of the trail are more challenging, otherwise fairly flat and easy... The more difficult sections can be muddy after rain and stay this way for couple of days. Keep this in mind and wear proper hiking boats or shoes even if weather is warm and dry.
  • A very long and beautiful trail. Make sure you start early in the day and give yourself atleast 7-8 hours to experience the wildlife and the ponds. I completed this trail in June. Almost 30% of the trail was flooded due to rain and increased water level of the ponds resulting in alot of mud and bushwhacking. Be prepared.
  • Amazing trail to hike. Pack a lunch and take your time. Well worth it!
  • We often see otters at Dizzy lake near the end of the trail. A lot of bird life and often see wolf and bear tracks. Lengthy but easy trail. No hills.
  • One of Algonquin's more challenging hiking trails. It is not recommended for beginner or unprepared hikers.This trail is a wilderness day-hike that will take several hours to complete. Be sure to pack adequate food and water as well as clothing for at least 8 hours on the trail. Proper hiking boots or shoes are a must. NO DOGS ALLOWED. This trail offers excellent opportunities to spot wildlife. We recently did a portion of the trail where we didn't see any animals, but did see footprints and scat of moose, otter and wolves. Scenery is classic Algonquin Park and is absolutely beautiful.
