Algonquin park hiking trails.


Recommended Posts

I am planning for a trip to Algonquin park this year. I have heard that there are 3 backpacking trails inside the park. I could go on only one during our stay in the park. Out of the three: 1. Eastern Pines Backpacking Trail  2. Highland Backpacking Trail 3. Western Uplands Backpacking Trail, which one should I choose? Which is more exciting and scenic? If I had time, I would have gone for all three, but unfortunately, I don't have time. I would like an opinion from people who have visited Algonquin park who have been on these trails.

Welcome Christi! 

Have been on a couple backpacking trips in Algonquin on the Western Uplands, and also one trip on Highland backpacking trail although that was more of a winter backpacking experience. Have not had a chance to check out the Eastern Pines Trail at least quite yet. Going again I'd be lured more to the Western Uplands I think, just seemed more remote, longer with more solitude, with more options for creating your own type of route / experience. But it might just depend on what exactly you're looking for. In any event, I think it would be hard to go wrong!
