Mizzy Lake Trail Reviews & Ratings

  • Went in the morning and saw some otters, snakes. Scenery was beautiful. Stop and breathe in the air, make breaks and watch for any movements, chances are you'll spot some wildlife especially if done in the morning and you can stay quiet.

  • This walk in the wet is hard work - the guide said it takes 6hrs, we did it in 4hrs, but we are fast confident hikers. This isn't the place to go for the wide view of Algonquin at its best - it is designed to see wildlife. We got lucky - we saw a moose within 10m of us, which was completely incredible, but it took until 8km in to see anything other than chipmunks and sparrows. In the sunshine and warm this would be a pleasant walk even if you didn't get lucky with the wildlife. In the wet, this walk could be a bit of a let down - we walked in the wet and the walk was feeling like a hard slog until we saw the moose that made it all worthwhile. Purchase the guide - it's well put together and will help you with tips on when to walk. Walking boots strongly recommended for the forest portion, but there is a good 3-4km in the middle on disused railway that speeds up progress. Definitely recommend starting early so you can take your time - we started at 1pm and felt stressed to finish in time until we realised our pace was a third faster than the guide estimate. If you see the wildlife, this walk is amazing.

  • We choose to follow this trail because they told us it was the one with the greatest chanches of meeting wildlife. For more than half of the trail we did not encounter anything but a beaver and a crow, but finally we met a beautiful moose, which also chased us for a little bit :) It takes about 4 hours and a half to complete the ring: most of the route is inside the woods, but there are also open spaces with lakes. Lots of mosquitos so it is advisable to have some protection. Overall a beautiful experience.

  • Hiking this trail is one of the coolest things I have ever done. We set out on the hike at 5:30am and saw lots of wildlife, including several moose, beavers and lots of birds. At one point a moose walked out on to the trail about 10 metres ahead of us. The trail is fairly challenging at almost 11km, most of which is through the woods. Long pants and sleeves are a must as the deerflies are plentiful.

  • This is kind of a boring trail. I think the best time to do this trail is in the morning. The value of this trail is that you might see wildlife. It is a longer distance so there are not a lot of people on it. With the side trail it came in at 13.9 km.
