Great view!

Our group did the 14 km loop, great views of the north east. The kids loved the "adventure trail". Great afternoon!

Save at least 90 minutes on your trip to Manitoulin to do the Cup and Saucer Trail! It's easy to find right off Hwy 540 on Bidwell Road just NE of M'Chigeeng. You'll walk 1.5 km or so, and then climb a fairly steep rise. As you get to the top, you'll have a spectacular view along a ridge for... More

It was a good hike and well worth it! Views of 180 degree + from the cliffs. I hope this thank you gets out to the property owners that allow hikers to use the trails free of charge.

This is a mostly shady trail with some great viewpoints along the cliffs. There are a couple of relatively difficult areas you need to scramble up (and then down on the way back) some rocks, but for the most part, the trail is easy.

One of the best place to hike in Ontario. Certain locations require climbing. So it is not suitable for all family members. The scenic spots are quite stunning if you have never been to Bruce or Algonquin. Enjoy. It's free.

Great place to hike with wonderful views. Especially lovely during the autumn. Involves some pretty strenuous climbing over rocky terrain.

This is A fabulous trail, combining the best of the Bruce trail, with outstanding views along one side, and beautiful walk through a deciduous forest, and caves on the other. One important note...if you want to do the adventure part of the trail (marked in red) do it on the way out, as it is not properly marked if you... More

This trail does require some climbing and it requires about 2 hours minimum. Great views over the island. Be sure to take water and a snack.

Our family 2 adults and 2 kids (11 and 8) hiked on this trail in late June 2016. The view was breath taking. Well worth the long drive all the way from Toronto. The trail was well maintained but the trail signs sometime can be confusing especially in the portion of the Adventure side trail. We ended up finishing the... More
