Stokely Creek has a 40+-year history of land conservation, designing, constructing and maintaining a trail system throughout the 8000 acre preserve, and is partnered with the Algoma Highlands Conservancy to manage this exceptional piece of Canadian Shield geography. Agoma’s Water tower Inn & Suites holds stewardship of 600 acres of protected land on the city’s northside, and we are proud to call our Algoma Highland’s neighbours friends.
Stokely/Algoma Highlands is one of the four largest Nordic ski areas in North America. Also very snowy…annually, 200 inches of lake-effect snowfall. 130 km are groomed for classic and skating ski styles, but there are many additional km of sometimes-groomed but well-signed trails. Ski to ice-covered lakes, enjoying the pristine silence and the snow-draped evergreens. Stay on the flats, or climb as high as King Mountain’s 1880-foot vertical.
Stokely Creek offers an extensive trail system with over 30km of pristine showshoeing trails and access to the cross-Ontario Voyageur Trail System. Every January, Stokely holds their annual Snowshoe Fest which attracts over 200 participants.
Driving distance from Algoma’s Water Tower Inn & Suites in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario: 24.9 km/15.5 miles.
We all had a great visit; all staff we encountered were pleasant and efficient.- Captain John Pierce
