The Heaven’s Gate Trail runs along the ridge of the La Cloche Mountains, the white quartzite hills that jut out of the Canadian Shield just west of Espanola.

The entire Heaven’s Gate Trail stretches from Sagamok First Nation, through La Cloche Provincial Park, to just outside Willisville, an estimated 40km with a different start and finish point.

The trail weaves you through the heart of the hills—into maple groves, birch forests, and up to Group of Seven-worthy vistas.
