Hiking season is in full swing. Trails are dry, but take along bug spray. Here’s a favourite Trailhead hike…the Robertson Cliffs at King Mountain. Elevation is 1840 ft./561 m., but it’s not a grinding assent. Hike is short at 5km, but there is a loop as well, and the view over of the Goulais River and Lake Superior is pretty special. There’s a pretty waterfall on the return loop. From Sault Ste Marie, drive north on Highway 17 for 28 km. After the Goulais River Bridge turn right onto Old Highway 17 road (Buttermilk Ski Hill Road) then take the first right onto Robertson Lake Road. Drive for close to 5km until you see a parking area on the right side of the road. Park here…the trailhead is located across from the parking area. You will see the white markers (Voyageur Trail Association), and blue for the loop.
While my work takes me many places across Canada, Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites is by far one of my favourites. The staff are exceptionally pleasant, rooms are clean and the 'Inn' offers 2 places to eat onsite. The food is great from either the 'Pub' or 'Caseys'....with lots of healthy choices.- Tripadvisor Review - Schmitty
