The Haviland Lookout Trail is a good hike to do just before a swim at the beach. I’ll have to hike back up here again soon to get a look at the fall colours from the top. There is a small waterfall along Tier Creek as you make the 200m climb from the lake up to the lookout.
Round-trip: 5 km
Location: Haviland Bay, ON
Park at the Haviland Bay public beach located on Haviland Shores Road approximately 35 km north of Sault Ste Marie. Hike from the parking area across the highway. You will find the blue-blazed voyageur trail across the highway from the old Haviland Bay Trading Post building and sign. The trail is well marked and fairly easy to follow, but make sure you bring a map and compass anyway. Once you reach the lookout, return back to the beach the way you came.
