The Casques-Isles Hiking Trail begins in Terrace Bay, along the spectacular 100 foot Aguasabon Falls and Gorge. The trail follows the shoreline, hopping from bay to bay until finally reaching Rossport, the total length being 52 km. The trail is divided into 5 sections. These sections vary in hiking time and difficulty so that both the advanced and the amateur hiker can enjoy the north shore of Lake Superior.
If you use your canoe or kayak to paddle to the southeast side of Quarry Island, you can access a calm bay where there is a trail that can be used to climb to the top of Quarry Island where a beautiful view of the Village of Rossport awaits you. If you are careful, you can walk your powerboat into the shore near the trailhead as the lake bottom is sandy.
Take a good book, swim and relax on the sandbars, have a picnic, bring your kayak to launch as Rossport is an access point for the Trans Canada Water Trail. Washrooms, a gazebo and picnic tables are available.
Play beach volleyball on the court. Walk around the rocks to the second beach by the highway and take a short hike on the Rossport Coastal Trail (starts at the east end of the Rossport Beach).
If you want to go a bit further afield, (45 km's west of Rossport on the Trans-Canada Highway) check out the Kama Cliffs Trail for a serene forest pathway with beautiful a vista of Lake Superior at the terminus of the trail.
The Village of Rossport has been chosen as a
"Champion Community of The Great Trail".
If you feel like going even a bit further yet, take a drive to see the spectacular Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park. The park is 130 KM's west of Rossport and boasts an incredible canyon where you can see peregrine falcons as you peer over the canyon walls from the two observation decks.
"The Ghost Town of Jackfish"
Do a full day hike (including travel time from Rossport to the CPR siding at Jackfish). Your reward will be the opportunity to explore the "Ghost Town" of Jackfish, Ontario.
The CPR siding access road is located 60 KM's east of Rossport on the Trans-Canada Highway.
