  Track and Tower Trail
by sim1

The reason why we are in Algonquin is to go on a short hike. There are lots of hiking trails in Algonquin Park (see my Algonquin page) and the one we chose was the "Track and Tower Trail".

The trail is located at 25 kilometres from the west entrance of the park and it is 7.7kilometres long. The hike will take you approximately 3 hours to do and it is moderate in difficulty. The looped trail features a spectacular lookout over Cache Lake. There is an optional 5.5 km side trip follows an abandoned railway to Mew Lake.

The guide book is available at the beginning of the hike (see picture). If the box is empty you can always pick up a copy at the visitor centre.
