Guided Hike
October 4, 2014

On Saturday, October 4, join Pukaskwa staff for a full-day guided hike on the Coastal Hiking Trail. Starting in Hattie Cove, you’ll pass the site of the park’s 2012 experiential prescribed fire, where you can witness first-hand the positive effects of fire on the boreal forest. The Coastal Hiking Trail is rugged and remote, and takes you through the boreal forest, wetlands and rocky terrain, with steep climbs and dramatic vistas of Lake Superior. The hike will go to the White River Suspension Bridge that spans the powerful Chigaamawinigum Falls, then will return to Hattie Cove.

Awaken your senses and take in Pukaskwa’s glorious palette of fall colours!

This full-day, 18km round trip hike is geared toward adventurous people who enjoy a challenging hike, but who might feel more assured going with a group and a guide. We will depart from the Hattie Cove Visitor Centre at 9am. The hike is 18 kilometres round-trip. We will be stopping for lunch and expect to be back at the Hattie Cove Visitor Centre around 7 or 8 hours later.

Bring proper footwear, bring lunch and a snack, and plenty of water! Dress for the weather and wear layers, as things can get chilly by the river. This hike will happen rain or shine!

The hike is included in the park’s daily entry fee. Fees are $5.80 per adult, $4.90 for seniors, $2.90 for youth or $14.70 for a family.
