McGillivray Falls trail is two loops that are accessible from PTH 44 near Caddy Lake. This 4.6 km trail will lead you through a small drainage basin typical of the Precambrian Shield. A shortcut reduces the length of the trail to 2.4 km before it reaches McGillivray Lake. This particular type of drainage system is found throughout the park.

Type: Hike.. Part of the Northern section of the loop is also part of the Centennial hiking trail and Blue Highway Route mountain bike trail system. Mountain bikers please stay on MTB section only.
Time: 3 Hours
Difficulty: Intermediate

       Do not ride the lower loop. We went through it with our bikes and had to wall them the entire way. It is so overgrown that it is barely hikeable. Take the shortcut and go back up to the northwest. I'm sure we have poison ivy. And our legs are bleeding and cut up.
