Worth to visit
Aug. 2020 • Family
We were so lucky that Kusky led us through the Warriors loop. My daughter chased Kusky the whole way. She had a lot of fun! The trial was much easier for younger kids than the Cup & Saucer one!

An amazing hiking trail. Well taken care off. Signage is great!! In my opinion a nicer and more scenic trail than the Cup and Saucer trail! Much better maintained. We had the pleasure of having Kusky the trail guide dog accompany us for the entire trail! Would definitely recommend!

A hidden gem on the island
Jul. 2019
I feel this trail is very underrated, at least it's not talked about in the same breadth as the cup and saucer. Also, it's a little out of the way, deep in a First Nation reserve.

There are three loops. The blue one is a recreational trail that's very low in intensity, which is great for family with young kids. There are also exercise equipments along the trail. The red and yellow ones are more intense, which lead you up the mountain and into the woods, but the view at the lookout spots are great and well worth the trek. We didn't finish the loop because the bugs were too intense and we didn't bring the spray with us on the trail.

The absolute highlight was the dogs. We were fortunate enough to have the dogs with us, but we caught a glimpse of what it could be. Half-way along the trail, I spotted two dogs, staring at us in the bushes :) Then they came to greet us and "led" us along the trail for a while. Then all of a sudden they went off. I think they were with the couple before us and came to check us out :)

All-in-all, a very pleasant experience (maybe minus the mosquitoes). Next time we will come more prepared and maybe better luck to have the dogs with us on the walk :)

Awesome hike with doggy companions
Aug. 2019 • Couples
Luckily we read Google reviews before going and so we were not surprised to see the three dog guardians. We had an amazing hike being accompanied by these three friends. They are so amazing and work as a team to keep you safe. The trail is $2 per person (we brought coins for the machine). We did the three fires trail and stopped at the beautiful look outs. Some mosquitoes along the way but nothing terrible. We covered up and wore bug spray. Would highly recommend this trail if only to spend some time with the dogs.

A nice hike (with guide dogs!)
Aug. 2018 • Friends
I mean, the best thing about this hike are the guide dogs - although the woods are nice and the views of the North Channel and Nahdweh Lookouts are lovely and have information posted about the history of the area as well, which I always look for and enjoy!
Story: We were the first group to show up the morning we went, and as we rounded the corner approaching the parking lot, 4 dogs came running up to our car, surrounding it and barking all the way. For a split second I was a little worried, but I slowly drove the car up to the lot and parked. I got out of the car to say hi to the excited, barking dogs. Although they were exuberant in greeting us, they are extremely nice dogs, and well behaved. They are there to help guide you on the trail (and to protect you from bears). They will occasionally go off and do their own thing for a couple of minutes, and then return, (sometimes all wet or covered in plant burrs!). I had a great experience, and would recommend it to anyone who likes to hike.
NOTE: the mosquitoes in some sections of the hike are deadly. I wore long sleeves and pants and you could still play connect the dots on my back and neck later. Absolutely douse yourself in bug spray before you go.

Dog guided hike!
Jul. 2018 • Family
As I red before there were really three dogs guiding us the way up and down. Beautiful hike with nice fiews - we`ve been the only visitors on a very beautiful summer day so very silent. The three dogs were a perfect add on for our 10-year old daughter! Beware of the buggs!!!

A Special Experience
Oct. 2017 • Couples
We loved the peace and beauty of the area, the expansive views and the physical challenge of the trails... but the trail dogs made this an unforgettable experience. Their energy and the way they would appear and disappear added a level of enjoyment that was unexpected.

Peaceful trail
Oct. 2017
We did the red trail which is well groomed and has some moderate areas of hiking. The views are stunning and we enjoyed the history of the area. We absolutely loved our dog leaders. Wiki the white leader, Wemi the follower and Kong the flusher! They'd disappear then suddenly return, like spirits of the forest. Wanted to return today to do yellow trail but it was raining fairly heavily so we stopped at the Tourism office and bought a handmade souvenir and at Andy's for moccasins and a toque.

Special Place and Hike
Aug. 2017 • Family
This is a special place. It was pouring rain when we left our cabin near Mindamoya and had a cool drive to Wikiwemikong - Canada's only official unceded indigenous reserve. After passing through the town we drove down Beach road and then through the last 4kms to the trailhead.
The trail was built to remember a number of community leaders including a man named Bebamikawe who died in a car crash when returning to the reserve after government meetings in Toronto. The land seems to have been chosen for its special energy from the water and the earth.
There are 3 options. First we did the blue or fitness trail. It is an easy 2 km hike with 5 fitness stations located through the woods. The permanent fitness stations allow for a full workout on equipment that uses your own weight to build strength. Because of the weather and the rough water conditions the trail between station 2&3 was washed out. We hugged the edge and jumped through the water using rocks to get through. The kids loved the workout stuff but the mosquitos far out numbered us. On a hot summer day it would be fantastic.
Then we carried on the do the 4.3 km Wildfire trail to see the North Channel Lookout. It was still pouring rain and the fairly steep trail was slippery but manageable and it was so rewarding. Watch for the team of friendly neighborhood hike leaders - 3 dogs followed us around the entire trail. It is bear country and the dogs offer some protection if not warning.
It was a fabulous day in the pouring rain.
