Favourite Hikes in Canada – Chikanishing River Trail

The Chikanishing River Trail can be found just west of the George Lake campground in Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario.  It is a relatively short hike at 3km, but has some fantastic views of the rugged Georgian Bay shoreline and its amazing red granite rock.

This is a fantastic trail to take the kids as the trail blazers are painted on the red granite and you can make a fun game out of finding and following the blazers.  Along the trail there are a number of signs to describe the history and geology of the area and you will also see old moorings for when the area supported a thriving lumber industry.

More information can be found at Killarney Provincial Park and Friends of Killarney.
