Hiking Trails In Ontario


The summer is now officially over and I look forward to some great fall hiking in Ontario. I managed to get out to quite a few new hiking trails in southern and central Ontario but the highlight would have to be the 10 day trip me and my wife took to Northern Ontario Were I tried to visit as many Ontario hiking trails as I could but 10 days was barely long enough.

Our first stop was just a lunch break at the French River visitors centre were the huge pedestrian bridge crosses the french river and the Recollet Falls Trail begins and follows the edge of the French River Gorge, ending at the historic Recollet Falls.

Our first stay over was 3 nights at Agawa Bay campground Lake Superior Provincial Park. There are many hiking trails here, too many to visit in just 3 days but we managed to visit the Agawa Rock Pictographs hiking trail, Pinguisibi Sand River hiking trail, Trappers hiking trail, and portions of the famous coastal hiking trail.

Our next stop over was Sleeping Giant Provincial Park near Thunder Bay Ontario. The weather was disappointing and hindered my ability to go hiking. I made it out to the Sea Lion hiking trail, Sibley Creek hiking Trail , and the Wildlife Habitat hiking Trail.

We then began our way back south and our next stay over was only 2-3 hours drive at Rainbow Falls Provincial Park so we stopped and walked the Ouimet Canyon hiking trail and the Eagle Canyon Suspension Bridge hiking trail.

I only walked 2 hiking trails in the park itself at Rainbow falls over our 3 days stay. Rainbow Falls hiking trail and the back forety hiking trail. But wile looking for a secluded spot on Lake Superior to spend the day we drove down a forest road and came out onto a Beautiful secluded bay and pebble beach were the Casques Isles hiking Trail passes thru going from the town of Rossport to Terrace Bay. There was a sign were we spent the day for a picnic marking the entrance to the Death Valley Segment.

Our last and final stop was at Pancake Bay But took the time to stop at Pukaskwa National Park around lunch time and hiked the Mdaabii Miikna one of the most beautiful hiking trails I have ever been on period. If your in the area its worth the stop even if its just for a couple hours.

we didn’t go on any official hiking trails at Pancake Bay but we explored the Lake Superior coastline spending hours and hours admiring the beauty of Lake Superiors north shore. This was truly one of the best trips i have ever taken right here in Ontario. There are just no shortage of Ontario hiking Trails in the north.
