Sleeping Giant Provincial Park


Standing on the shores of Lake Superior, it is clear how this provincial park acquired its name. The giant rock formation standing across the lake resembles a sleeping figure, with its arms folded across a large chest. Understandably, there are any legends surrounding this unique, natural formation. Ojibway legend explains that in the wide opening of Thunder bay, the sleeping stone figure of the Great Spirit lies in the waters of the lake. This phenomenal, northern park has endless opportunities to hike, camp, and mountain bike. Too many to name, there are an impressive 19 different hiking routes winding through the park, that add up to over 100 km of trail! These outdoor activities provide excellent wildlife viewing opportunities in the boreal forest, and breathtaking views of Lake Superior. Enjoy a relaxing and exciting getaway in this natural Ontario sanctuary.
