Travel through maple groves, mixed forest and open-rock to the Eardley Escarpment. The lookouts reward hikers with gorgeous views over the Ottawa River Valley. Stairs and some steep sections make this a moderately graded hike, but the loop shouldn’t present too much of a challenge to fit hikers.
Dogs and pets are not permitted on King Mountain Trail.
