MacKenzie Point is one of those places that surprisingly few local people have visited. It is a small rock outcrop on Lake Superior that is perfect for watching the waves crash in or for an evening picnic.
Roundtrip: 1 km +
Location: Thunder Bay, ON
The views of Lake Superior and the Sleeping Giant from here are beautiful, especially at sunset. In the winter you can hike over the ice from MacKenzie Point up the MacKenzie River as far as you can –depending on the ice conditions.
From Thunder Bay, take Highway 11/17 east 20 km to Lakeshore Drive and turn right (west) onto Lakeshore Dr. After just 100 metres, turn left onto Coral Beach Rd. (at Fire Hall) and follow the road across the railroad tracks. Keep left and follow the road to where it ends at the parking area.
