If you’re on the hunt for a quick hike that offers a stunning payoff, the Eagle’s Nest Lookout trail should be on your radar.

A short 1.5 km hike along an old logging road promises a gradual climb through the woods, culminating in a jaw-dropping view from atop a 120-meter cliff.

Keep in mind that this trail’s reputation precedes it, so don’t be surprised if it’s bustling with fellow adventurers eager to witness the breathtaking view from the cliff edge.

Considered a moderately challenging route, the hike generally takes around 50 minutes to complete, according to AllTrails.

However, other hikers who have written about their experience online claim that it takes closer to 30 minutes.

The area is a hotspot for birdwatching, hiking, and rock climbing, ensuring that you won’t be alone in your exploration.

Whether you choose the Old Logging Road or the Little Pine Path, your efforts will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Ottawa Valley.

Take your time to soak in the scenery from various vantage points and unique rock formations.
