The Montreal River Area used to be know as "Trails End". This was the end of the road which extended north from Sault Ste. Marie. Montreal River is also know for the steep surrounding terrain and the cobbled beaches of the former glacial lake shorelines of Glacial Lake Nipissing and Minong. Travellers to the Montreal River Area can view the majesty, and during storms, the power, of Lake Superior from the Montreal River Hill.
New mountain biking trails are being developed by the owners of Mad Moose Lodge. These backcountry trails access the adjacent Provincial Crown Land access roads and will provide connection to the Tribag Mine Road and then Batchawana Bay.
Coastal kayak excursions north or south of Montreal River will introduce you to extraordinary rock uplands and raised cobble beaches formed during the times of Glacial Lakes Minong and Nipissing. Look for Pukaskwa Pits in these cobble beaches.
I was in town for business. I did not expect much out of this place, but I am happy to say that they have exceeded my expectations in terms of cleanliness, being Green, and the restaurant and pub food, and service quality. This is surely the place I will be staying at for my next business trip.- Alba
