Snowshoeing in Sault Ste. Marie
Sault Ste. Marie/Algoma brings you the land of snow and the snow trails to snowshoe on. The abundant lake-effect winter precipitation on Superior’s east coast, the soul-lifting wilderness terrain, the forests, lakes and water falls of the Canadian Shield region, and the easy access to designated or off-trail snow hiking…well, just come. Snowshoeing is as easy as walking. You don’t have to own the shoes…you can rent them. You don’t need special boots or special gear. Just the priceless joy of being outdoors.
Stokely Creek/Algoma Highlands
Five snow-tingling trails to choose from in this pristine corner of the wilderness world…from the fun and easy 2 km Otter’s Trail to the 15 km King Mountain Trail with a peak’s view over mighty Lake Superior. New in 2014 is the 2.5 km Peregrine Pass, starting from Stokely Lake Cabin and rising gently 400 feet to end at the ice cliffs of the Frozen Waterfall Ski Trail. Stokely Creek is the 4th largest cross-country ski area in North America, so you have access to the Lodge, and the warming huts. Get this…some wild and woolley winter folk tote gear for both, and ski and snowshoe the trail system. But you don’t have to do that…just strap on the webs and pick your journey. For more information and trail maps, visit Stokely Creek’s website.
