This Peaceful Ontario Trail Will Lead You To A Breathtaking Lookout Point

Started from the bottom, now we're here.
An Algonquin Park Trail Leads To A Huge Cliff With Truly Breathtaking Views

The views here totally rock. So, if you’re looking for new adventures, listen up. You can hike along this Algonquin Park trail to a stunning Ontario lookout point and it’s sure to satisfy your ever-present wanderlust. 

Booth's Rock Trail is a 5.1 km trek that will lead you past sparkling lakes to the top of a giant cliff where you can stop and soak in the surrounding scenery. 

There's just so much to see here.

Along the trail, you’ll also find a hidden forest staircase, remains of an old estate, and a long-abandoned railway, perfect for all you eager explorers out there. 

At the time of writing, Algonquin Provincial Park’s day-use areas are open daily from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. 

However, there are a number of restrictions in place.

According to a blurb on the park’s website, “all trails in the park may not be ready for hikers. For your safety, please respect trail closure signs.”

The site also suggests you check what activities and facilities are available, avoid large groups, practice social distancing, and bring items like water, snacks, and hand sanitizer with you. 

So, once you've done that, lace up those boots and get ready to fall totally in love with nature again.

You know the old saying, nothing worth having ever comes easy?

Well, that’s certainly the case here.

The long hike to Booth's Rock is quite rigorous, especially if you’re not an experienced hiker. 

But trust us when we say the payoff is worth it. 

Just be sure to pack enough snacks and water to keep you going on your journey.

With views of towering trees as far as the eye can see, you can imagine a visit to Booth's Rock in the fall season is especially spectacular. 

Though, we’ll take this special lookout any time of year, to be honest. 

So if your bucket list is looking a little empty these days, why not add this gem to your future explorations?

It’s going to rock your world!

We strongly advise that before you visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures. If you do plan to visit a location, respect the environment.

If you've got milk in your fridge you should probably check it because there is a Dairyland milk recall in Canada due to "sanitizer residue."

On September 15, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency recalled a certain type of milk that was distributed to retail stores in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
