The Cup and Saucer Trail runs along and below the centre of the highest part of the horseshoeshaped Niagara Escarpment, following two ridges of sorts. At 180m about sea level, the highest of the two ridges is also the highest point on Manitoulin Island. Both ridges are about 70m (230ft) high. Although the escarpment itself is fascinating, the best views are those over the North Channel to the La Cloche Mountains along the upper trail. Eventually, the Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy plans to build the 450km (279mi) Manitou Trail that would link the Cup and Saucer to South Bay Mouth in the south and the Mississagi Lighthouse in the north.
