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

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.
