It’s a very short stop along the highway into Thunder Bay but well worth it. What a beautiful look out and fantastic tribute to a national hero!!! more »
We were passing through and decided to stop. So glad we did. What a wonderful tribute to him. Not to be missed. Lots of information Quite emotional. Beautiful lookout spot and park setting. more »
Beautiful spot and monument for such a great Canadian. Just up the road from the milepost that marks the end of the Marathon of Hope. The grounds and monument are very well kept and a great reminder of what it means to be selfless. Great views if that's what you want out of it. The best spot to view the sleeping giant.
Well worth it to get off the highway to have a few minutes to look. Also, this view is amazing!
