My family was camping at Sleeping Giant Provincial Park and wanted to explore the area a bit. Ouimet Canyon is so much prettier in person and the short and accessible hike to the two look out areas is lovely. There was only one other car...More

After turning into the park following a sign on Highway 17, it was still a bit of a drive before arriving to the parking lot. We noticed an ad for an adventure company operating suspension footbridges and zipline there, but it was already late in...More

Take the drive out of town and you will not regret this visit to a magical place. The trail is well maintained and well built.

We stopped in the morning and it was a good time to do so. The lighting as the sun came into the canyon was worth it. There is a short hike on excellent trail to see the canyon from two very nice overlooks. Don't just...More

We visited Ouimet Canyon late in the day and were rewarded with several beautiful views. The trail to the 2 lookouts is not long and is a very easy walk for any age. There is a short bridge to cross before you hit the trail...More

Only a short walk to the viewpoints, lovely views of the canyon and some information panels for education. Watch for wildflowers as lots to see during our June visit.

Yes, but you don't pay until after you park. You pay inside the small visitor center/gift shop by the parking lot. I can't remember what the fee was, but it wasn't much. A few bucks each..maybe $3-5 per person? Sorry... More
