    Hardwood Lookout Trail in Algonquin Park


    The second interpretive trail along highway 60 is the Hardwood Lookout Trail. It's located at km 13.8km and it is a short hike of 0.8km (1 hour). The trail is moderate in difficulty.
    This short hike introduces you to the ecology of a typical Algonquin hardwood forest and culminates in a fine view of Smoke Lake and the surrounding hills.


    The guide book is available at the beginning of the hike. If the box is empty you can always pick up a copy at the visitor centre. Another option is to order the interpretive trail guide online at the "friends of Algonquin" website for CAD 0,47. Here is the address... hahaha, it's a bit long! But it will bring you right to the guide bood you are looking for :
