This trail at Restoule Provincial Park begins at the picnic area just west of the park road. It initially winds its way through a maturing red pine plantation, then leads to surroundings of mixed upland forest. This trail is for experienced hikers as it can be a sometimes challenging climb to the top of the Stormy Lake Bluffs.
Spectacular views of Stormy Lake and the surrounding forest and a historical fire tower make this hike worth the effort.
