Hiawatha Highlands

For many residents of Sault Ste. Marie, the 1,214 hectare (3000 acre) Hiawatha Highlands is the area of choice for their hiking, jogging, cross-country skiing, picnicking and nature study. The Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority has acquired the forested lands for conservation and recreational purposes.

You can leave directly from Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites and cycle or jog to the Hiawatha Highlands and enjoy a refreshing dip in Crystal Creek. Take Old Garden River Road to Landslide Road and follow the road to the Hiawatha Highlands.

Mountain Biking

This is a primo trail area close to Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites. There are many marked cross-country ski trails which make excellent mountain bike trails in the summer months.

Road Biking

Cyclists can ride from the Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites to the Hiawatha Highlands Conservation Area using Old Garden River and Landslide Roads. The Landslide Road hill can be a challenge early in the cyling year.

Testimonials

Chose Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites so that we could have a get-together with Soo Friends at the Pub. Opted for the "Sweet Suite" for just a bit more $$, and it was perfect. The Snugglebed was just that! Service with a smile, everywhere - even the cleaning staff went out of their way to smile and say "Hello". Enjoyed the Pub and the Restaurant. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Soo.
