Description

The Cliff Trail follows along the top of a cliff above Lily Lake. The trail starts by traveling through a mainly softwood forest before emerging to some open views of the lake. The trail then veers away from the lake and climbs through a beautiful hardwood ridge before emerging onto the Trans Canada Trail below the lookouts on the Lookout Trail.
