  • The whole trail was a bit over 5 km long, and covered in less than 2 hours. There was only one short steep ascent to the cliff top. The views of the Rock Lake and surrounding highlands from the cliff top were awesome. Other than those, the rest of the trail was generally flat and less eventful. The trail was well maintained, too. If I had enough time, I would prefer the Centennial Ridges Trail. Otherwise, the Booth’s Rock is a shorter and easier option I recommend. The parking lot was full and the trail was a bit crowded on the peak weekend. I was allowed to park my car roadside near the entrance. I saw some people smoking in the trail - I am not sure if smoking was allowed here, but it was certainly not a pleasant scene as there were also kids and families at the same time.

  • Booth's Rock Trail in Algonquin Park is a beautiful hike. It is slightly longer (approx. 3 km) than some of the other easier hiking trails at Algonquin Park (e.g. 1.5km Lookout Trail, 1.2 km Beaver Pond Trail), but remains a relatively easy hike. If you don't have two to three hours to complete the entire hike, it is suggested that you start from the end of the trail at post 12, and work your way back until you reach trail posts 9 and 10, then backtrack from where you came from. The end of Booth's Rock Trail lounges Rock Lake, and make for a beautiful and relaxing nature walk.

  • Booth’s Rock Trail is a fantastic and relatively short hiking trail! It is the perfect amount of difficult. It is only about 5km, but has many inclines and declines, some being fairly steep including some stairs. The ground is fairly rough with rocks and tree roots sticking out all over. It is challenging enough however would not say it was hard to complete quicker than the estimated time of 2.5 hours. The views from the top are spectacular, particularly in the fall. It feels so high up as you are able to look out over a lake and can see for what looks like an endless amount of trees! What really killed us was completing this hike after we did the 12km bike ride (each way) from Lake of Two Rivers campground. Although not an overly difficult bike ride, our legs were toasted before we even arrived at the hike! Round trip this took us about 5.5 hours including having lunch at the lookout. Well worth the trek and a great half-day adventure!!

  • The vistas on this trail are some of the better ones that are easily accessable off the highway for day trippers.

  • A must do hike while visiting Algonquin Park. Allow 3 hours to stop for pictures and rest. From the parking lot, head out on the westbound trail for a gradual climb to the top. Enjoy a long stairway on the way down to the old rail line trail. Head north back along the shore line to the parking lot.
