Well worth it
Sep. 2020
The George Island Trail is beautiful with a mixture of terrain. There were some wet/muddy section but we were able to find a route around. I would not suggest to hike this trail after a rainfall. The view of the Georgian Bay is beautiful. I would love to go back during the summer and go for a swim. The trail is mostly well marked, there was 1 section where we lost the trail, but found it within a few minutes. The friendly staff at the Killarney Mountain Lodge boathouse gave us a ride across and picked us up when we were done. Great and quick service!

The George trail has been totally redone and marked . It is maintained and well worth the hike . Easy to moderate level .

Must check it out

It is a lovely hike. It is not strenuous and it's safe. It is a good trail if you are doing it with someone or solo.

George Island, Killarney, ON trail
Aug. 2019 • Friends
We inquired at Sportsman's Inn of the ferry to George Island and were informed that it is no longer available. We were informed that "nobody goes there to hike" as the trail is not maintained, bushy and not marked. The staff at the inn said that he would not recommend going there. He directed us to the nearby Killarney Provincial Park for trails.

It’s a beautiful trail, had been very well signed in the past, but some of the signs are quite weathered nowadays.

The first problem for us is how to cross the water? Luckily we found the Sportsman’s Inn has taxi service for $3 each person.

The loop trail is swampy, rocky and also buggy. We walked the loop clockwise. Once you reached the south shore of the island, you will thank yourself for going through all the trouble.

We got a little lost on the way back. There seems to be more than one trail on the west side of the island. With the help of gps on my cellphone, we managed to get back to the main trail. It took us 3.5 hours to finish the George Island Wilderness Trail.

At one time , this George Island loop was a fantastic hike . Now , it is a nice one way (out and back) hike on the western side of the loop . The Eastern side of the loop is difficult to find .. very rough hiking as a good part of it is under water ! That means a lot of bush- waking ... and hoping that you will find the trail after getting yourself around numerous bays ! I took my grandkids on this trail .... advertised as a 3 hr. hike , it took us to 6 hrs. to do the loop ... and I know that many would not put up with so much effort to try to the trail . This could be a nice hike if it was reset and maintained .
