This is my favourite route up Mt. Godfrey. I think the view of Lake Superior from just over halfway up is one of the best I’ve seen.
Location: Thunder Bay, ON
From Mission Road follow the signs to the Mt. McKay Lookout. Park in the campground lot just before the Mt McKay Lookout toll booth. Walk up the road toward the Mt McKay Lookout just past the toll booth and take the trail immediately on the left.
Follow this trail and stay right at the fork found at about the 200 m mark. At 1 km from the start of the trail, you will find a grassy clearing with some large pine trees. Look for orange flag tape on the North side marking the beginning of the trail to the top. Follow this trail across a creek and then up the steep incline to the top. Return the way you came.
