Trail didn't seem maintained at all. Many fallen and uprooted trees across the trail, with no easy way to get around them due to the steep slope of the hillside. It was a nice quick walk to the bridge, but unless you are very well prepared and ready to slip and possibly fall on the many rocks you have to scramble and slick wood steps/bridges you have to cross, I highly recommend you stop at the bridge.

I think this a great hike for anyone. I haven't worked out in forever so I'm out of shape. I was huffing and puffing most of the time. BUT it was worth it. The trail is all uphill but the length of the hike is not to bad. Max two hours round trip.

The boreal forest loop is a beautiful forest walk through a dense birch forest. We were here the end of July when it was dry. I imagine it could be full of water fowl in the spring.
