Gros Cap offers outstanding vistas from the shoreline of Lake Superior. For those willing to make the trek to the rock bluffs, using the Voyageur hiking trail, the visitor will be able to take in a 270 degree vista at a height of 60 to 90 metres (197 to 295 feet) above Lake Superior. Detailed maps for the Gros Cap tour are available from Algoma's Water Tower Inn reception.
Cyclists can ride to the Gros Cap area directly using Highway 550 (Second Line) or by using a combination of Highway 17, Fourth Line, Allen Side Road and Third Line to Second Line then on to Gros Cap. On the return cyclists can extend the trip by cycling out to the Pointe des Chenes area before returning.
A drive to the Gros Cap area is always a pleasant trip because of the scenery. During the fall colour period this is a particularly scenic drive that local residents enjoy taking.
The Gros Cap Bluffs can be accessed using the Voyageur Trail. Here the trail should be accessed from Marshall Drive. This location has spectacular views of Whitefish Bay of Lake Superior and rugged coastal scenery.

We stayed here with our daughter's hockey team and we had a great experience. The rate for the rooms was quite reasonable and the hotel had a lot to offer. The kids enjoyed themselves in the pool and hot tub area. Having a Casey's and starbucks coffee on site was wonderful for the families with us. The hotel is also in a great location, with lots of the necessities surrounding it. I would most definitely book a stay here again!- Tripadvisor Review March 2012
