Amazing views!!!

Really great trail for a nice hike. We did about 12K and got a good sweat going in the 30C heat but it was well worth it for the views! Take water.

Get there before 9am on a weekend. Its quiet and not many people. When we descended at 11am.. there were many people ascending so taking fotos on the cliffs is better if u get to the cliffs by 10am. When we got to the cliffs before 10am nobody was there. By 11:30am when we got back to the parking..it was... More

My GF and I hiked to the East Lookout trail. She had ACL surgery 4 months past and was able to survive the hike to the lookout. It was very steep and she had the most trouble coming down on the way back to the parking lot. Make sure as others have said to stay on the right path when... More

Had a fantastic hike. We went with 2 other families and had a blast. The lookout was marvellous and the adventure trail was excellent. Something you could do over again.

The trails are in great condition and be prepared for a few challenging spots, best arrive early when things are relatively quiet... but ultimately once you arrive at the views all is forgotten and you're left amazed... so a camera is a must. Some tips: Take a photo of the trail guide just in case (camera and phone) and study... More

Woke up early to tackle this hike. We were the only ones on the trail which was nice, we could go at our own pace and when we reached the top had the whole view to ourselves. When we were halfway down we started passing people and by the time we reached the bottom (around 10am) it was very,very busy.... More

We did the full 12km in 4 hours, adventure trail is intense but worth the trip!!! The views are unreal, so breathtaking. Dont recommend for children, some areas are very steep for climbing. Was one of our top things to do in Manitoulin!

Wasn't sure how my girls would do on this (age 4 & 7) but they toughed it out through the two climbs. Amazing views of the island from the top.

The trails could have been marked better, once you climb up to the top it is worth every effort. We got lost coming down though

Wear good shoes. Bring water. It's 13k all around. The view from the too is breath taking. Its a hard climb. I had an 8 year old with us and he got tired, but I was tired as well.
