Visiting Manitoulin Island in the off-season meant jackets, no frolicking at the beach, and checking which restaurants are closed. On the plus side, I get beautiful autumn foliage, and the entire Cup and Saucer trail to myself! Besides the two steep climbs, the trails are flat and easy going. In the autumn when the ground is covered with leaves, there... More

I really enjoyed our hike up to the lookout point of the Cup and Saucer Trail. That said, I didn't find their map/signage that accurate, which became frustrating at times. The hike is easy enough; we saw and met lots of families with latency-age children doing the hike. There were also challenging sections for those who are up for the... More

We did the full trail over about 4 hours. We did get mixed up at the beginning but managed to rejoin the trails. The views are very nice, the adventure trail is fun if you're up for it, with some well built ladders, caves and tunnels. The steep bits are steep so this isn't for everyone but once you're up...

It was a great trip. We did get lost but once we figured it out it was well worth the extra 4km. We walked everything except the adventure trail because we had a baby in a backpack and we walked 14km. The view from the top is amazing. It's a must do.

The cup and saucer trail was fairly easy to locate w/ help of the GPS. The trail itself though was not as easy to navigate with confusing sign posts. For those more interested in the destination rather than the journey, look at the map and take the trail to the left leading immediately to the look out. If you're stopping... More

The views on the "white path" are spectacular. Not for the faint and weary. Can get very tricky if damp. No railings, steps or guards. Give yourselves at least 4.5 hours to do the whole trail with time for photos and snacks. Bring water and be sure to be out before dusk.

The trails were fantastic. Beautiful scenery. The trails, however, are poorly marked. The regular trail was an adventure enough for me so, I didn't attempt the adventure trail.

Wonderful views once you get there, the first part of the trail isn't well sign-posted even local people get lost.

We did this trail during 2nd weekend of August 2014. Right of the start after 100meters or so the path splits into two ways, a narrow trail on the left and a wide path going towards right. We by mistake took the wide path which costed us extra 15-20 mins of hike. If you there please make sure that you... More

With the important warning that you need to be well aware of being cliffside, we did the short loop using the side trail one way and found this was the perfect hike for our family (two kids aged 4 and 8). The side trail mostly avoids the cliffs and has just enough rock climbing that my kids felt like they... More
