Silver Queen Mine Trail


Murphy’s Point Provincial Park             

Starting at the Lally Homestead, this trail crosses abandoned farm fields to the Silver Queen Mine, a turn-of-the-century mica mine.

Before you start, sign up for a guided tour of the mine at the Gatehouse. An interpretive trail guide, available at the beginning of the trail, tells the mine's story.

Located on the historic Rideau Waterway, this park near Perth offers tours of a restored mica mine and trails – groomed in winter for cross-country skiing – to sawmill ruins and pioneer homesteads.

At Big Rideau Lake, pitch your tent at a boat-in campsite and enjoy boating, canoeing and exceptional fishing.
