Pukaskwa National Park
Ontario's only wilderness park, Pukaskwa National Park covers 1880 square kilometres of rugged terrain and frigid water along the rocky north shore of Lake Superior halfway between Sault Ste. Marie and Thunder Bay.
Moist air, chilled by the largest fresh water lake in the world, moves inland off Lake Superior, where it has a significant effect on the habitat of the plants and animals surviving in the harsh environment of this Canadian Shield landscape.
The 57.8 kilometre Coastal Hiking Trail in Pukaskwa National Park is the best introduction to Northern Ontario wilderness hiking that we know of.
To use the trail, you must register and let the park know when you plan to return. This is the safest method for you to ensure that someone will come looking for you if you don't return on time.
