Superior Trail


Lake Superior Provincial Park

Coastal Trail - 63km, Expert The trail follows along the shoreline of Lake Superior Provincial Park from Sinclair Cove in the south to just passed Cape Gargantua in the north. This trail winds along the top of a granite ridge to a beautiful view of Lake Superior. Cascading waters plunge over the rock ledges of Rainbow Falls on their way to Lake Superior. Following along the rocky shoreline and ascending and descending the cliffs, you'll find this to be a challenging multi-day excursion. There are a large number of designated campsites on route, as well as several access points if you can't do the whole trail at once. The trail is a part of the larger Voyageur Trail system which plans to connect Thunder Bay in the North and Manitoulin Island in the south. The trails access points are Sinclair Cove, Katherine Cove, Orphan Lake Trail and Gargantua Harbour. Many sections of the trail become almost impassible when it rains (or heavy fog moves in) due to the slippery nature of the rock when it's wet. The trail takes from five to seven days to complete. Permits are required, inquire with the park.

Trails, including the Casque-Isles section of the Voyageur Trail, lead to panoramic views. Choose to camp near the beaches of Whitesand Lake or along the rugged shore of Lake Superior at the Rossport Campground
