TRAIL TRAVEL on the THE ANIMIKII
Part of the route includes several open water stretches on Lake Superior where non-motorized boating can be hazardous, depending on wind speed and direction; paddling this whole stretch of coast as part of the Trans Canada Trail experience requires experience and high skills. However, the number of islands and mainland bays and peninsulas do provide refuge and safe harbours on most of the water trail – there are also several locations where easy day trips could take place by less experienced paddlers.
Travel 17 kms from Fort William Historic Park to Lake Superior. The protected nature of the River caters to paddlers of all skill levels, and offers experiences ranging from rural to urban to industrial.
