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

Hiking in Ontario tends to be trees and rocks and rocks and trees and trees and rocks and, if you're lucky, a glimpse of water. This trail delivers in the first 20 minutes. At this point you emerge onto the Niagara Escarpment and follow it along for another 20 minutes or so getting frequent views over the lakes, wetlands, and... More

We did the full 12km and all three trails. We met a young man and his family friend who helped us around the explorer trail. Without them we wouldn't have known the caves to go it. It was a fabulous day spent with my daughter and I would return again, and again…..

The view from the top is spectacular, especially in the autumn. Some of the hike is very challenging and the top is true Niagara Escarpment cliffs so young children should not be taken up and all children should be carefully supervised

We could only do the short 5km hike - we saw breathtaking views and really enjoyed it and wished we could have done the longer one. You climb to a great viewpoint and have lakes and forests at your feet. Unforgettable.

One of the best places at Manitoulin Island. The views from the trail are breathtaking. When there, don't miss out the "Adventure Trail". :)

Beautiful views along the trail. Steep climbs, not a hike for small children. Be sure to take your camera.

Situated in M'chigeeng this was the highlight of our trip. We had a local guide from The Great Spirit Circle. He was very knowledgeable about the entire island and had many great stories to share. If you are in the area I would recommend getting a guided tour its worth it. The hike and view itself will just take your... More
