This trail connects Marathon to Heron Bay and Lunam Lake. This trail offers an amazing view of Heron Bay from a lookout and the calm shores of Lunam Lake. The section from Lunam Lake to Heron bay is the most difficult part of the trail. From the lookout there are a series of rock piles which are used to continue on the trail. A large portion of that section of trail is an uphill climb over rough terrain. In a few places the trail can be wet.

Past Lunam Lake the trail becomes much easier to walk on however close to Hawks Ridge, at Craigs Pit the ground is littered with large pebbles making the terrain slightly rougher. The trail intersects the old Voyageur trail so make sure to follow the better kept trail. Both the new and old sections of the Voyageur Trail connect to the Hawks Ridge Trail.
