This trail is more rugged than trails in Killarney or Algonquin Parks. There are not a lot of sections over rough ground, but you go up and down plenty of hills. The trail stretches 142 km from Latchford in the north to Rabbit Rd, in the south.
The trail is marked with white paint blazes and where there are no trees with orange ribbons and on open rock sections with rock cairns.

It is recommended that hikers start from the north which is more traveled and easier than the south. The south end of the trail has many steep hills and sections of side hill walking.
