It's not really fair of me to review this hike because we did not do it all. Secondly, I am used to the mountains so it take a lot to impress me. That said, we mistakenly took the "side trail" that departed from the main trail early on (to the left). Do not do this! It's only a meander mostly... More

I highly recommend doing the full 14km hike including the adventure trails, which offer some moderately difficult terrain to negotiate. Most of the trail is easy in difficulty with some moderately challenging portions along the way. There are numerous lookout points to enjoy and the views from the top of the escarpment are stunning. Some of the rock formations are... More

Amazing scenery. Great hiking trails. Will definately come back in the Fall. Reading previous comments i was afraid we would get lost but its not as bad as i expected. I took the white trail with 3 of my boyz and they had a wonderful time. Will for sure come back again ;)

Always a must when visiting the island. It's fun and the view is amazing. People of all ages can do the hike. Bring a lunch and sit up top and eat and enjoy the view!

The Cup and Saucer Trail provides both a fabulous view from the top of the escarpment and a challenging hike to get there. The trail system has several options that can provide levels of difficulty and distances. I have done the shorter trails four times over a period of several decades. The most difficult part is the two locations where... More

A great hike in a scenic setting! Some of the trails lack markers that would make it easier to navigate. Aside from that, we had a wonderful time - some of the look out spots are absolutely spectacular with some great photo ops!

We wondered whether we were on the right trail and after studying the signage showing the route, we made the right choice. Yes the signage is bad and we met another couple who had difficulty finding the way. In the end we found the limestone ledges on the bluff with incredible views of the lakes and forests of Manitoulin Island.... More

Phew....I'm glad we weren't the only ones lost. The markings - blazes - for the trails are really bad, or non-existent. We had a long hike through the pleasant forests and meadows and stepped and climbed over many fallen logs. Never made it to any cup, let alone saucer. We met several couples and families who were similarly deluded into... More

Everyone we met in the parking lot and the trail are unable to find the right path. We spend 3 hours hiking in the wrong path but able to got back to the trail and enjoy the awesome view with the help of another hiker. I hope our picture will help others find the trail. Dated July 30 2015.
