I've done Centennial Ridges probably 7 or 8 times. It's just a fantastic hike through the park. Centennial is the toughest day hike in the park, you definitely should be in at least reasonable shape before tackling this trail (plus wear reasonable footwear - pity...More

Algonquin Park, the granddaddy and crown jewel of the Ontario Parks system, is one of our go-to places when needing an outdoor fix. We’ve done everything from Highway 60 corridor car camping, back country canoe tripping, to hiking most of the trails. Unfortunately, work schedules,...More

Hi there. This response may be a bit too late since I just saw the message now. My parents (70 and 66) recently completed a few of the shorter trails in Algonquin, one of which was the Lookout Trail which is about 2 km in... More
