Big Pines Trail


This 2.9 km loop visits about 80 huge, old White Pines and the site of an 1880s logging camp. The guide discusses how these magnificent trees came to be there, pine ecology, and the Park's logging history. Algonquin has three primary backpacking trails, each made up of a series of loops ranging from 4 miles to 43 miles in length.



The Highland Trail is the flattest and least rugged of the bunch, with loops of 11 and 20 miles. The Western Uplands Trail is longer and slightly more rugged with loops of 19, 33, and 43 miles. The third is the newly completed Eastern Pines Trail, located in a more remote section of the park. It has loops that range from under 4 miles to 9 miles. Of course, this being Canada, all of those mileages will appear in kilometers on trail maps.
