Some of our road side picnic spots are stunningly beautiful locations! This waterfalls just west of Ignace is signed only with a brown picnic table sign post.
Tall pine trees and a half dozen separate outlooks over this spectacular falls were located less than a minute from the highway.
Canada doesn't seem to advertise these beautiful spots. They are intimate and personal; perfect for a glass of wine and a picnic lunch.
Thunder Bay Residents cool off in the Current River at the Cascades Conservation Area. Visitors can access this popular swimming hole by going to the end of Balsam Street. It is a pleasant 10 minute walk in from the parking lot.
For safety reasons bring water shoes and please avoid the temptation to dive or jump in as the water depth varies substantially.
