Potholes Provincial Park is located 70 km east of Wawa on Hwy 101. The parking is located right off the highway and provides quick access to the walking trail that winds along the river. Potholes Park is not hard to get to and makes for a great day trip.
The walking trail is easy to navigate with boardwalks and interpretive signs take you through distinctive “potholes” in the bedrock that were naturally formed by glacial meltwaters thousands of years ago. You can see the water still flowing through these potholes creating distinctive bedrock scenery including miniature waterfalls along the Kinniwabi River. You have to see it to fully appreciate it.
Potholes Provincial Park is a day-use park only. No campfires or open fires permitted at any time. No potable water is available at Potholes. Privy toilets are located at the trailhead.
