To access the Anima-Nipissing Fire Tower trail, drive west from Highway 11 to the end of AnimaNip Road. Park at the third turn-around on the last road to the left before reaching the Government dock on Anima Nipissing Lake.

Look for a red blaze and hike the groomed path up to the Tower for a photo opportunity of a spectacular view of Maple Mountain to the west and Rib Mountain to the east. This hike takes about 20 – 30 minutes.

Across the road, hike the old trail to the Lake and a large campsite for a picnic and a swim.
