Naomikong Point

Round-trip: 12 km Difficulty: Moderate Location: Bay Mills, MI Map:  Click Here for Google Map of this Hike I love to walk the shore of Lake Superior. I never get tired of it.  This area of the lake is a bit different than what I had been used to up near Thunder Bay. Here the water was very shallow with sand bars that seemed more like sand flats.  Even the texture of the sand was different.  There was some familiar cobble shoreline...

Mt. Godfrey

Roundtrip: 5km Difficulty: Difficult Location: Thunder Bay, ON Click Here for Google Map This is my favourite route up Mt. Godfrey.  I think the view of Lake Superior from just over half way up is one of the best I’ve seen. From Mission Road follow the signs to the Mt. McKay Lookout.  Park in the campground lot just before the Mt McKay Lookout toll booth.  Walk up the road toward the Mt McKay Lookout just past the toll booth and...
