Ouimet Canyon

Ouimet Canyon lookout is in Superior Country’s township of Dorion, just 50km west of Nipigon. The massive gorge, surrounded by high vertical cliffs that drop 100 metres straight down to the canyon floor, is a natural wonder to Northern Ontario and offers some of the greatest views all year round.  Arctic plants, usually found 1,000 km north, survive in the unique environment at the bottom of the canyon.

The canyon is 1.86 miles (3 km) in length and 152 metres across. 

A one kilometre loop trail and boardwalk connects two lookout platforms with spectacular views of the canyon.
