Just under a five hour drive north of Toronto near the city of Sudbury, lies the Killarney Provincial Park. If you are spending your travels in Toronto, you may be wondering just what Killarney may have to warrant such a road trip. It's no overstatement to say that this is the true, unvarnished Canadian wilderness without having to cut a path all the way to the Yukon. Active travelers will enjoy trekking the shoreline on Georgian Bay, the thick cuts of forest and quartz ridges, and circumnavigating over a dozen glittering lakes. You'll encounter numerous short trails within the park limits, while the 100 km (62 mile) loop of La Cloche Silhouette Trail provides an allure for the most hearty and in-shape adventurers, especially for those with the endurance to ascend to the park's best viewpoint, the Crack. Speaking of the lakes, backcountry kayaking and canoeing can be had on dozens of local waterways and are often the best way to immerse yourself in the all-natural.
If you're planning to stay the night only George Lake has camping accommodations, although you may pitch a tent at one of nearly two hundred basic sites within the park. For more information on navigating the park, entrance fees, and much more, take a look at the included website.
