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.
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, or a quick round of basketball. 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.
