The Sifting Lake Trail is one of the lesser-known trails at the Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. It is a woodland trail that takes you through old-growth forest to the shore of Sifting Lake
Location: Pass Lake
Sleeping Giant Provincial Park is a very popular hiking destination, but this trail does not see as much traffic as the others. The woodland trail takes you through an old-growth white pine and eastern white pine forest to the shore of Sifting Lake. Sifting Lake is known to attract migrating birds. It is a one-way hike with a return via the same trail.
From Thunder Bay, travel East on Hwy 11/17 . At the Pass Lake truck stop turn right onto Highway 587 and follow it for about 23 km just past the entrance to the park. Watch for the Sifting Lake Trail sign on the right and park in the parking lot. The trail begins in the parking lot area.
There is a day-use fee and Sleeping Giant Park has pay-and-display parking meters that allow you to pay your entry fee right from the parking lot.
