Pancake Bay Nature Trail


Located next to the campground, this trail begins along the dramatic Lake Superior shoreline, takes you over forested ancient beach ridges, through a fascinating wetland and then ends along a shallow meandering creek.

Highlights of this trail include a boardwalk crossing the wetland, spring and summer wildflowers and a huge billion year old conglomerate boulder. Interpretive signs posted along the trail will guide you in experiencing the natural features of this walk. This wide, sheltered, sandy bay on Lake Superior's east shore offers a respite for weary travellers.

From a viewing platform you can see the lake and the spot where the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in a fierce November gale in 1975. Voyageurs used to stop here, with just enough flour left to make pancakes before restocking supplies in nearby Sault Ste. Marie
