The trail is a (10.1 km) point-to-point trail that connects the townships of Red Rock and Nipigon. Experience the shoreline of the Nipigon River and along Nipigon Bay on Lake Superior, the world’s largest freshwater lake. If you don’t have much time, consider taking a shorter (1.6 mile/2.6 km return) hike starting at the Red Rock trailhead to the viewing platform at Lloyd’s Lookout, then hike a few minutes further to relax in the Parks Canada red chairs (which are free!). Or start at the Nipigon Marina trailhead and 1-2 miles of flat terrain along the edge of the Nipigon River.
