Chutes Provincial Park protects many natural and cultural features in the region between Sudbury and Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. The name “chutes” comes from the historic logging chute, which helped divert timber around the waterfall on the Aux Sables River. The scenic and picture-worthy hiking trails will bring you up, over the river gorge and waterfalls on Aux Sables River and the Seven Sister Rapids. In the summer, the sandy beach located below the waterfalls is a refreshing place for a swim. Many routes for canoeing and kayaking start in the park and expand, allowing you to discover Manitoulin Island and the North Channel of Lake Huron. The fall season is also great time to explore, especially if you want to see the salmon run up the Aux Sables River to the waterfall where they spawn. Whether you want to spend a couple days camping and exploring the area’s history, or simply stop for a scenic picnic and swim in the river, this park definitely deserves a visit.
You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
