Agawa Rock Pictographs Trail is located within Lake Superior Provincial Park in Ontario’s Algoma Country. This is a 0.5 mile (0.8 km) loop trail that leads to the Agawa Rock Pictographs, one of the largest collection of Aboriginal pictographs in Ontario. The trail itself is remarkable for its unique geological features. A steep staircase carved from rock, steep cliff faces, and boulder-rocky pathways make the trek an experience all its own. Once you arrive at the pictograph it can be viewed from a rock ledge below the cliff along Lake Superior. A metal chain is bolted in to aid visitors on the ledge.
The trail is open from May 29 to September 17.
All visitors in Lake Superior Provincial Park must purchase a day use permit. Full day permits are $15.50 and visitors can purchase them at the Agawa Bay Visitor Centre, Gatehouse, or the Park Office.
