Fort St. Joseph National Historic Park is the perfect destination for history buffs. Here you will learn about the British and First Nations alliance and the long history of the fur trade. Explore ruins rich in history from the War of 1812, take a guided tour or Ghost Walk, and even dress up as a British soldier! There are plenty of trails from easy to advanced for walking, hiking, and cycling. Many trails take you past historic sites, such as Cemetery Trail which passes a late 1700’s burial ground. Rails Point Trail is also a must-see. It is wheelchair accessible and only a half km in length, leading to an 1800’s settlement site and a gorgeous beach on the shores of Lake Huron. La Pointe Trail will take you to an ancient fort that was used to house Fort St. Joseph soldiers prior to being abandoned by the British in 1824. This historic park is also an ideal birding destination, with over 100 species of birds. In fact, it was federally recognized as a bird sanctuary and is a popular spot for wildlife photography. A trip to Fort St. Joseph National Historic Park has something for everyone!
