The most challenging and demanding trail in Lake Superior Provincial Park, the Coastal Trail will take us along the high cliffs and rocky beaches of Lake Superior. The trail ascends and descends over cliffs, rocky outcrops, beaches, boulders and driftwood. Generally the trail hugs the coastline.
We will enjoy the rugged beauty of the world's largest freshwater lake as we explore the Lake Superior shoreline. The park's geology is most dramatic on the coast where waves have exposed the rock shoreline. Come explore the variety of landscapes - rocky shores, beaches, lakes and rivers, waterfalls, boreal and hardwood forests, wetlands and rolling hills. Rhyolite and Beatty Coves are particularly interesting. Along the way, sand and cobble beaches are nestled in coves, providing shelter for campsites.
