Coastal Trail, Pukaskwa National Park
If you want to experience a pristine swath of undeveloped shoreline along Lake Superior and you’re prepared for five days of tough hiking then choose the Coastal Trail in Pukaskwa National Park. Beach- side campsites are spectacular. The trail up and down the rocks of the Canadian Shield is diverse, beautiful and like nowhere else I’ve hiked. When wet, the lichen covered rocks are slippery. When dry, they’re a delight to hike. Bugs can be bad in summer. Blueberries are downright amazing come September. This in my mind is one of the best backpacking trips I have ever done.
