    Moderate Trail. Did the Red Trail. Better signs/directions would definitely be helpful . Reaching the lookout point was all worth it.

    Hidden Gem of a waterfalls. Great trail. Easy, well maintained with spots to take a break well positioned benches. Stairs leading down to the river very well maintained. Dog-friendly. Some parts are steep/slippery-hiking poles are helpful. :)

    Nice outdoor area with a food truck that serves smoked meats, burgers, poutine. Good selection of beers. Take note that the beer store, patio, and food truck all have differing hours and none seem to be posted anywhere, so we were glad we stopped by in the morning to ask how long they stay open, given the early closings we observed throughout northern Ontario.

    Don’t miss this spectacular sandy beach. Plan to be there for the jaw- dropping sunset. The boardwalk is lovely. There is a big playground for kids- big and little. Flush toilets and change rooms are available, even during covid. The biggest kept secret is the fantastic little shop at the waterfront- Huron Island Time. It’s equipped with treats, art, Gifts and beach necessities you might have forgotten. The ice cream is delicious but the surprise was the fantastic, home cooked Jamaican food. At this time of year, there are not any restaurants open in Providence Bay, but the beach shop will be open as long as the ferry is open. Call ahead to reserve your meal.

    We stayed in the Outlaw and the Daisy Mae and could not have been more pleased about the unique experience the kicking mule ranch offers.

    From the moment you arrive you are greeted by Chris The owner and fabulous host! The teepees are very comfortable and spacious.

    Each accommodation has its own fire pit and table. In the evening we enjoyed the campfire and conversations with Chris and the amazing View of the starry skies.

    The common kitchen and bathroom areas are meticulously clean and hot coffee is waiting for you when you wake up!

    Chris gave us a tour of the entire property including the petting zoo and the other accommodations such as the chuckwagon and the ice hut. Each accommodation is unique. It is a fabulous experience I would recommend to anyone.

    We only had a short stay but will definitely return with friends!

    Really neat brewery in the heart of Gore Bay-Manitoulin. The service was great and the beer even better! They even offer a non-alcoholic soda that was delicious!

    Lovely place With awesome atmosphere. Following the previous review: for health nuts! Dang right, and proud of it. This is real food that nourishes properly. Perfect portion. Right out of their garden. Very creative dishes. Check their menu online. Simply awesome.

    Harold Noble Memorial is the lookout point. It overlooks Gore Bay. There is free parking and a portapotty. This point is starting point of the Noble Nature (1km) . It starts downhill through a forest and the terrain gets rocky eventually. Easy leisure walk until you East Street. Turn left and walk on East Street to connect to Boardwalk Trail (2km) if you are feeling athletic! The boardwalk takes you along the bay until you hit the Fish Point Park which is directly across from the Harold Noble Memorial Park! Along the way on Board trail is a children’s water park and the marina!

    Spectacular views and nice trails. We did theong red route which went down by the water. Be ready to get your feet wet or wear water shoes with a pair of hikers. Only criticism was the trail to move away from the water back to visitor center was not well marked from the water area. We walked by it and then back tracked to find it

    We cruised by the Strawberry Lighthouse on a North Channel Tour, it is a very cute lighthouse and looks well maintained, don't know if you can go ashore though.
