  • It states this is a difficult hike but it is very simple for someone who is wearing appropriate clothing. We went up the left side instead of taking the full loop round and it was steeper but still a fine walk. Didn't take long at all and the views at the top were amazing! A must see in Algonquin
  • An easy loop hike of a little above one mile. Though the hike has nothing exciting to offer, the summit would have a nice view of colors in the fall. It would be worth an hour of not so difficult but steep climb. Need to have good shoes with good grip. Walking poles aren't needed, however if you aren't confident, feel free to carry them as the hike itself is not gonna be strenuous.
