Equal parts a cultural and natural wonderland, Pukaskwa combines authentic boreal wilderness with longstanding Anishinaabe culture. Families can treasure hunt on rocky shores and in the woods on a geocaching adventure. Day hikers will marvel at views from the White River Suspension Bridge. The sandy shores of Horseshoe Beach make summertime memorable. The Bimose Kinoomagewnan Trail shares important teachings of the Anishinaabe. And wilderness hiking and paddling routes put the untouched natural beauty of Pukaskwa on full display.
