The Attikamek Trail is located at the Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site of Canada. This accessible pathway takes you across the canal gate and onto south St. Marys Island. The Attikamek Trail is more like a network of trails than just one pathway. There is no trail map posted to lead you to the points of interest but it’s fun to explore all the different paths that make up the Attikamek trail discovering the sites as you go.
At the park visitors centre, you can learn about the deep history of this area as well as gain an understanding of how the locks work and even watch as boats pass through the system.
