If you happen to be in the area for a hike and have some questions on a route this is a good place to start. The folks here weren't overly friendly, but they were helpful. There are hikes in the area for any level of fitness and experience.

Hiked Mount Jo via the Long Trail. Reviews say this is the easier trail than the Short Trail. I can't speak for the Short Trail, but the Long Trail has some very challenging parts. My girlfriend and I are not the most fit people, and we were able to do it, but it is NOT a walk in the park... More

We went to the High Peaks Info Centre before hiking Algonquin Peak. If you forgot anything on your way to hike, this is the place to get stuff before you start your trek including maps. Employees will answer any questions you have and seemed to be knowledgeable about the different trails and their conditions. It does cost to park, or... More

Stopped in before hiking Algonquin Peak. Got the current weather forecast and up to date trail conditions. They also have some last minute items for sale if you forgot something important for the trail. A must stop before going into the mountains.
