  • We have visited here many times over the years. Not only is it close to Sault Ste. Marie but offers great views of Lake Superior as it forms into the St. Mary's River.  more »
  • If you want the look out stay on secdon line till the end and park. Follow trail and stay left, it's only 500m. The conservation area can use the same parking lot but go right on the trail and...  more »
  • We followed directions ended up in the middle of no where. Big disappointment. The trail at the bottom is very unsafe. No rocks to be found.  more »
  • Love the trails here at Gros cap. Can be difficult to find at first, but with persistence, you will see a trail that leads to other trails. One of the trails takes you to a secluded beach area. It is very rocky, but still worth the hike to get there. Beautiful, pristine water, quite cool, but very refreshing on a hot day. Can get very windy here, but on a hot day it's great to hit the trails along the beach line.
  • Must be awesome - if reached. I got lost in the woods after a long dirt road. As many others have said, it's an unmanaged road full of holes, and private property, too. I tried the other way from ON 550 but the trials were absolutely the same and I couldn't risk to get lost. So either you go with a local, or get a good map of the area.
  • Drove here yesterday in hopes to hike o the waterfront to find out it's been shut down. This conservation area was once open to the public, but now it's private property. Don't waste your time driving out there. Its a summer maintained road with no parking. The owners do not want people trespassing. Don't bother.
  • Nice area with lots of hiking trails
  • Great for snowshoeing. Beautiful scenery.
