Located in Pancake Bay Provincial Park this trail provides great views of Pancake Bay and Whitefish Point where the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in 1975.  From the trailhead sign it seemed like this trail was called the Edmund Fitzgerald Lookout Trail, but everywhere else it seems to just be called the Pancake Lookout Trail.

I don’t know if it is true, but I read somewhere that the park got its name because the Voyageurs used to stop here, with just enough flour left to make pancakes before restocking supplies in nearby Sault Ste. Marie.

From Sault Ste Marie, drive West on highway 17 for 75km then turn right on the Lookout Trail road just past the entrance to the campground.  Drive for 180m and turn into the trailhead parking area on the right.  The trail begins in the parking area.
