In many ways, the history of Lake Superior Provincial Park, a 155,600ha (384,332-acre) region on the shores of Lake Superior is a microcosm of Canadian history. Thanks to the volcanoes and earthquakes that moulded the Canadian Shield into towering mountains and deep canyons, and the modulating effects of four different glaciers since then, the park includes a variety of significant rock features. Two of these are Agawa Rock, which is highlighted on the Agawa Rock Pictograph trails and Agawa Mountain, which is reached via the Awausee Trail. The Awausee Trail also offers some great lookouts over the Agawa Valley and the Agawa River. Agawa Canyon is also right next to the park. Visitors who want to hike through the canyon have to take the Algoma Central Railway, which operates along the park’s eastern border. This trail guide includes Trappers Trail, Crescent Lake Trail, Pinguisibi Trail, Agawa Rock Pictographs Trail, South Old Woman River Trail, Nokomis Trail, Orphan Lake Trail, Peat Mountain Trail, Awausee Trail, Towab Trail, and Coastal Trail.

This Park is huge and there are so many trails to hike. We did the Towab trail which is at least a two day trail if you are an expert hiker. Excellent trail for a 3 to 4 day hike. We can't wait to get back up there next month to try some of the other trails!

The Nokimos hike is good with a good track and some good views. I do not recommend The South Old Woman River Trail, it is an annoying track and there is not much see. The guide provided here is low quality, I advise you to pick up the park hiking guide, it is better quality.

This is an excellent trail. The lake is great and the trail is easy to follow for the most part yet rugged and remote. To see pics and full report see my report at http://joesbackpackingblog.blogspot.com
