The La Cloche Silhouette Trail is a 78-kilometre (48 mi) backpacking loop across the rugged quartzite peaks of the La Cloche mountain range. The trail is situated in Killarney Provincial ParkOntarioCanada. The trail is named for Group of Seven painter Franklin Carmichael's painting "La Cloche Silhouette."[1] Wildlife can be seen throughout the trail - black bears, moose, deer, snakes, turtles, and beavers, among other animals, can be seen at various points along the way.

Note that the trail is nearly a loop, but actually a point-to-point route between the East and West trailheads, on either side of George Lake.
