Fall is that time of year where things cool off, and despite the cooler weather some of us look forward to, there are still outdoor activities to enjoy. In Algoma Country we have the pleasure of enjoying not only the cooler weather, but the vibrant colours that explode as the leaves change throughout the region. As you travel along some of the roadways and hiking trails in Algoma, the bright oranges, vibrant reds, and dazzling yellows are spectacular. There are numerous hiking trails in the region, some of which lead to scenic lookouts. Read on for some of the best bets.
Heading north to Goulais River, Robertson Cliffs is located just north of Sault Ste. Marie. This hike is always a great workout as you climb up to view the incredible scenic lookout. The lookout trail is located across from the parking area. Follow the white blazes until you reach the top of the cliffs. If you time it right in the fall, you will see a sea of vibrant colours lighting up the landscape.
BOOM CAMP TRAILS
The Boom Camp Interpretive Park is part of the North Channel Historic Trail that spans from the Township of Shedden to Huron Shores. The park has 12 km of multi-season trails, and a total of 70 interpretive and direction signs that relate to the rich cultural and natural history of the area. There are three distinct trails that make up the network of trails: the Harbour Loop (3.1km), Woodland Loop (5.3km), and Delta Loop (3.7km). Along each of these trails you will find unique geological formations, scenic lookouts, and wildlife viewing. Each one of these trails provide great opportunities to enjoy the fall weather and the changing colours of the leaves.
