Great Fall Drive – Agawa Canyon

Our virtual fall drive across Ontario continues! Last week we brought you snapshots from the North Shore drive. This week we take a journey south through the spectacular Agawa Canyon.

Route 2: Agawa Canyon, 225km/140 mi

Photo Op # 1 – Lake Superior Provincial Park
Thrill at the “Power of Lake” at beautiful Lake Superior Provincial Park. With countless hiking trails for the beginner and expert, as well as camping throughout the park, you can truly enjoy the essence of Lake Superior. Don’t forget to visit the pictographs – a must see! This stunning photo was taken by Glenn T.  from the Awausee Trail as part of our Share Your Ontario photo contest.

Photo Op # 2 – The Agawa Canyon
Explore the breathtaking mixed forests and granite of Algoma! Admire the blazing fall colours as you drive along the shoreline, and then discover the wilderness that
inspired the Group of Seven on a train tour through the canyon.

Photo Op # 3Pancake Bay, Ontario
This sheltered bay on Lake Superior’s east shore offers gorgeous landscapes and perfect fall photo ops. From a viewing platform you can see the spot where the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in a fierce November gale in 1975. Voyageurs used to stop here, with just enough flour left to make pancakes before restocking supplies in Sault Ste. Marie just to the south (Ontario Parks).
