This trail is one of the few in Ontario that leads to First Nations pictographs From Lake Superior’s rugged coast. This park moves inland over mist-shrouded hills and deep canyons whose breathtaking beauty and rich autumn colours inspired Canada’s Group of Seven artists.
Intermediate, 0.4km This is one of the largest collection of Indian pictographs in Ontario. The trail to Agawa Rock is notable for it's geological features. Be aware that the viewing area presents challenges and is exposed to the wave action of the big lake. The trail should take approximately 1/2 to 1 hours to complete. The trail can be accessed just off of Highway 17, north of Agawa Bay.
The Coastal Trail and part of Highway 17 hug Lake Superior’s rugged, rocky coast through this park, offering spectacular, unimpeded views of the legendary moody blue waters. Along the park’s eastern border the Algoma Central Railway snakes through Agawa Canyon, thrilling sightseers and dropping off hiking and canoeing adventurers along the way. Don’t miss the pictographs at Agawa Rock, and the park’s new Visitor Centre!
