We wouldn’t blame you for not knowing about Sleeping Giant Provincial Park.
After all, it’s a solid 15-hour road trip from Toronto (or a two hour flight). But it’s still very much in Ontario, just east of Thunder Bay. And if you have a few spare days this summer it’s well worth making the trek north to experience one of the most beautiful hikes in the province.
Once inside Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, you’ll have access to more than 90 kilometres of trails for both day hikes and overnight excursions.
You’ll trek the rugged shores of Lake Superior and be rewarded with some absolutely breathtaking views. Both the famous ‘Sea Lion’ and the ‘Head of the Giant’ are must-hikes if you make it to the park.
Camping, swimming, canoeing, biking, and fishing are all open to the public.
So yes, if you’re in the mood for an epic adventure this summer, start getting your road trip buddies together and put on your hiking shoes, ’cause the Giant is waiting.

The Sea Lion On our way out to the top of the sleeping giant we made a detour to this beautiful spot. A formation known as “The Sea Lion” that has been left behind after the sedimentary rocks in which it crystallized eroded away from the constant crashing waves below. This and the turquoise waters make it one heck of a gorgeous spot to visit. _______________________________________________ Sleeping Giant PP | Ontario | Canada _______________________________________________ #discoverontario #explorecanada #thunderbay #sleepinggiant #sealion
