  • This little hike near Red Rock made up for our disappointing hike at Quetico. The hike is fairly easy up to Lloyd's Lookout, through a nice forest. The views over Lake Superior were fabulous. Highly.....  more »
  • they say it is 8.5 km, but it is really close to 11 km. Don't do it on a really hot day, lots of ups and downs, not for the novice walker, take lots of water  more »

  • Starting at the Red Rock end, the hike was top notch from the very get go. Steep moss lined trails weave across the fungi laden forest floor as you ascend to the first lookout point, a quick few minutes from the beginning. Just in time for the first layer to come off, the lookout offers a perfect vantage point for a view of the bay like no other. The trail continues.
  • Gorgeous trail, lots of hills and strenuous hiking for much of it. It's a good challenge.
