Nestled between Sault Ste Marie and the shores of Lake Superior, Prince Township is a haven known for its natural beauty, hiking, and paddling opportunities. Leaving the city, the Trail melds into the countryside where you’ll be flanked by mountains of the Precambrian shield to the north and glimpses of the mouth of the St. Marys and Canada’s northernmost Great Lake to the south. Experience breathtaking vistas from the Gros Cap Bluffs, see the sentinel wind towers or connect in a different way and leave the shore behind as you take on Lake Superior’s world-class paddling.
Gros Cap is the western terminus of the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, the eastern terminus of the Lake Superior Water Trail, a linkage in the Trans-Canada Trail, and a popular destination for cyclists who want to dip their toes in Lake Superior. Visitors can relax at a local B&B or take in local history at the nearby Prince museum.
