Good exercise in a terrific setting

There are several lengths of trails to try. For anyone with kids, don't miss the adventure trail which includes ladders and 'caves'

A highlight of our trip. The view is incredible and the hike helped us work off all the fish and chips we've been eating

We had a perfect day for our hike along the cup and saucer trail....sunny and dry. We did not walk all of the trail as our time was limited, but in well under an hour, you can reach the fabulous lookout. Start to finish including a leisurely stop at the look out was under two hours. As others have said,... More

I have done the cup and saucer trail many times and each time I see something new. You get a great view of the island from the top of the trail. Lots of parking and the price is right. (free)

This is a hike that is worth the view,so bring your camera,be aware of changing weather conditions beforehand.A rain storm came up out of nowhere and made the trek down dangerous,especially with small children.

We didn't have time to do the entire Cup & Saucer trail. It was still worth it. We got up to the ridge and the view along it made us glad we kept the brief visit on the itinerary. The trail isn't suitable for small children or those with mobility issues as there are steep sections where we more or... More

Excellent hike, a bit tricky in some spots but overall a great place to spend a couple hours. Easy to find and a great value. Pack some water and get ready for a great walk!

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
