Red Chairs – Porphyry Island is located on the eastern side of the Black Bay Peninsula about 25 miles (40 km) east of Thunder Bay in Ontario’s Superior Country. A 0.8 mile (1.3 km) path leads you from the dock to Porphyry Point where you will find the lighthouse, out buildings and the red chairs. Sit and relax on these red chairs and enjoy unobstructed views of Lake Superior and the Sleeping Giant.
“The red chair experience is all about connecting visitors with nature in Canada’s most unique and treasured places. Whether it’s a quiet place to enjoy an awe-inspiring view or an “I made it!” marker at the end of a rugged hike, a red chair offers you a place to relax and truly discover the best that Parks Canada has to offer.” ~ Parks Canada.
