Nokomis Trail, Lake Superior Provincial Park
If you’re driving the Trans-Canada Highway in northern Ontario, chances are you’ll go right through Lake Superior Provincial Park. It’s worth a stop – ideally for several days so you can explore the myriad of trails and experience the moods of Lake Superior. A stand-out half day hike is the Nokomis Trail. The trail follows the Old Woman River Valley and then steeply climbs to a series of viewpoints. In the fall, the colours to the east are beautiful. If you’re a serious hiker, you’ll want to do the Towab Trail to Agawa Falls, perhaps as an overnight backpacking trip.
