Write Up:
We were a group of 7 and we arrived at the trailhead about 9:20. Is was about 9:30 when we set out of the parking. Along the way we encountered another group that was about to start their hike. The name of the group was "Westwinds". We did the loop in the counterclockwise direction. Later we met up with a group of "youngsters", perhaps in their 20's. When we were taking the side trail into the Point Campground we came across a class, perhaps 30, grade 8 students that had just left the Point Campground and were headed back to civilisation. Then on the way back to main trail we encountered another of junior high students heading into Point Campground. Our lunch break at the campground lasted 35-45 minutes. We stopped at the falls for a picture session. After that we met up with several couples on the trail. And about 3.5 kms from trails end we noticed a group of about 9 canoes filled the gunnels with camping equipment. We figured that they were headed to the Point Campground. The youngsters were having a dickens of a time paddling into the wind. We were back at the trailhead about 2:45. A great time was had by all!
