Start your adventure with a hiker orientation with Trail Guardian prior to your backcountry departure. For the more adventurous outdoor enthusiast, this self-guided hike will take you into the interior of the Point Grondine Park for an overnight adventure along the Wemtagoosh Falls Loop/Georgian Bay Coast Trail. Beginning at the park trailhead at Mervs Landing, this trail has a water crossing via canoe at the Mahzenahzing Lake.

This rugged trail takes your through old growth pine forest along the Mahzenahzing River to Cedar Lake. Hike along the river to Wemtagoosh Falls and take in the breathtaking scenery. At the falls you will find the backcountry campsites nestled along the trail with water access at Cedar Lake.

The last leg of the hike will take you along Cedar Lake winding up and down narrow passages to the lookout site at Smugglers Canyon. This section of trail gives you a glimpse into what the hike will be like to the coast of Georgian Bay and throughout the many interior lakes of the Park.
