South Baymouth to Little Current: Drive and Things to See

Hello,

After spending a few days in Tobermory next month, my husband and I will be traveling by ferry (Friday @ 11:20) to Manitoulin Island. Our plan is to drive the island and see some sights before we check into our hotel in Little Current that evening. We will also have some time the next day for exploring before we leave for home via the swing bridge. Do you have any recommendations for the route to drive from the ferry terminal and things to see and do during our brief visit to the island?

Thank you for your help!

after leaving the ferry, if you drive straight down the #6, about 1/2 hour or so, you will come across this little gift shop on the right hand side. I can't remember what it is called, but there are two teepees on the property. There are some interesting things in the gift shop ( a tad expensive) BUT the view from this property is amazing! Well worth the stop in.

Manitiulin is all about nature and relaxing!

If you're outdoorsy take a look at the cup and saucer trail .... it's not a bad hike and does provide some nice views. Below is copied from a web site. Time allocation really depends on how quickly you walk and you can turn back around at any point.

Eighteen km west of Little Current at the junction of Highway 540 and the Bidwell Road, is the well known Cup and Saucer Trail. With its 2km of dramatic 70-meter cliffs and breathtaking view, up to 12 km of hiking trails, and 2 km adventure trail, it is on of the most popular trails in Ontario. This walk will take anywhere for 1 ½ to 4 hours.

Another is Bridal Veil falls trail ...

This trail is located on Highway 540 at the entrance to Kagawong. A picnic area at the top of the falls leads down to the base of the falls, and the trail follows both sides of the stream of the bay. While you are there, take a dip in the falls, and take the walking tour of the old town. This walk will take approximately 1 to 2 hours

The cup and saucer trail and bridal veil falls are exactly the kinds of things I was looking for. Thanks for passing these along!

Beware that the map at Bridal Veil Falls shows two footbridges you can use to cross back over to the main trail. Only the lower bridge is actually there. We walked down one side and returned on the other side with the intention of crossing back on the upper bridge. The trail petered out and we had to backtrack.
