Is it 5 kms return or one way? How long did the hike take?

            Has anyone ever got lost doing this hike?

                      Super cool trail. Extremely muddy but well worth it in the end.

                        My wife and I completed this hike on Oct 5/2017 and it was extremely muddy. We both were up to our knees at one point or another! Despite this, the pay off of seeing the mostly intact bomber was well worth it.
                        Once you reach the trail from the highway, it's a short walk to the incredibly creepy abandoned building you walk through. After the building, the path narrows and you will soon hit the mud. Keep an eye out for the yellow Parks Canada signs and the pink/blue/white ribbon you will see tied to trees as these will mark the trail. There is also a guide rope tied between trees that help to guide you in the right direction (this rope is only present for a short section of the trail so don't rely on it too much). Continue following the markers and when you start seeing plane Debris, you are getting close! Don't deviate from the marked trails too much to avoid the mud, there are numerous game trails that can easily throw you off and get you lost quickly.

                          Went in early July /17. Interesting hike and destination but as others have said, the trail through the bog is EXTREMELY muddy and can be difficult to follow due to the many attempted detours to avoid mud. Stay close to the rope in the trees, follow the yellow markers and flagging tape and you will be OK. Some people came back surprisingly mud free but clean clothes and shoes for when you get back to your car is highly recommended.

                            We hiked the Canso Plane Crash on december 30th, 2016, a nice sunny winterday, after a few really wet days. We were warned it could be muddy. And it was! We wore hiking boots, no rubber boots, but were nevertheless able to make it without our feet getting soaked. The way back we chose some drier diversions, but without losing sight of the waymarks. The hike took a lot more time then we expected. But is was absolutely worthwile, very spectactular and surprising to witness the crash site on the hill, like it happened yesterday.

                              The trail is *REALLY* muddy! It was slow going through the mud as we would sometimes fall in up to our knees. But it was neat to see the old plane sitting on the side of the mountain.

                                This is one of the coolest hikes I've ever done. The plane is very intact considering it has been there since the 40's. The pools are neat where the bombs were destroyed. It's been very warm this year, so the muddy section was not very muddy for us, so I guess we were lucky. The only downside to this hike is having to walk along the highway but it's a short distance.
