Lake Superior Provincial Park is one of the largest provincial parks, covering about 1,550 square kilometres located between Sault Ste. Marie and Wawa in Northern Ontario.

The Agawa Rock Pictographs are a popular attraction at the park and while there is no exact time of when the art was created on the rocks, it’s estimated to date back many centuries.

To get close to the pictographs you’ll have to wait for a day when the waters aren’t rough as the rocks scale against the lake.

You’ll find the descending trail leads you down to the pictographs from the parking area as they scale along the 15-story high crystalline granite cliff.

If you like to hike, there’s no shortage of that either.

According to Ontario Parks, “Eleven trails let visitors explore the variety of landscapes – rocky shores, beaches, lakes and rivers, waterfalls, forests, wetlands and rolling hills.”

You can find out more about each trail’s difficulty level here.

Day passes/vehicle passes can be booked here starting at $10.84
