Casque Isles Trail
This is a 53 kilometre rugged, but spectacular section of Voyageur Trail. The Casque Isles Trail is a signed and groomed trail that offers vistas to the visitors who wish to share in Lake Superior's majestic and rugged beauty in Northwestern Ontario Canada. Beginning in Rossport, passing by Schreiber Beach and ending in Terrace Bay, the total length is 53 km.
The trail follows the shoreline of Lake Superior, hopping from bay to bay, and is divided into five units, each with its own unique wilderness experience and access point from Highway 17. These units vary in hiking time and difficulty so that both the advanced and amateur hikers can enjoy the scenery.
The trail is now part of the Voyageur Hiking Trail which is an association of trails between Thunder Bay and Sudbury including areas in Pukaskwa National Park and Lake Superior Provincial Park. All of these trails have been designated Trans Canada Trail. A perfectly adequate guide to the Casque Isles Trail (with maps) can be found in the Voyageur Hiking Trail Guidebook (2007 edition), which can be obtained from the Terrace Bay Tourist Information Centre or the Voyageaur Hiking Trail Association.
Along the route you follow Lake Superior's shoreline, passing by old gold mines, fossil deposits, trappers' cabins, and caves adorned with Indian pictographs. This trail is hilly, wilderness trail between to communities of Terrace Bay and Schrieber - great communities, great trail!
