Cup and Saucer Hiking Trail The Cup and Saucer Hiking Trail has a unique outline against the Manitoulin skyline. Signs mark the trail through the woods up the dramatic edge of the escarpment to a grassy resting-place. Lover trail is 2.7 km and the upper trial is 5.4 km in length. The adventure trail, a 2-km option on the top of the escarpment, takes the avid hiker up and down sturdy ladders, up a natural rock chimney and along narrow ledges for a panoramic view of the North Channel of Lake Huron. For more information call 1-800-465-6655.

Mississagi LighthouseHistorical Museum Walk the halls of the historic lighthouse. Come and see what life was like as a Lighthouse Keeper in the 19th and 20th centuries. 1873 The Missisagi Lighthouse was built in 1873 to aid travelers through the dangerous Mississagi Straits. Due to an off shore magnetic reef the navigational systems in ships would be thrown off causing many shipwrecks. 1881 In 1881 the Fog Horn Plant was built to further aid travelers through the dense fog that often covers the Straits in the early morning. Trails Located near the Meldrum Bay Lighthouse are several short trails that follow the craggy shoreline over flat limestone ledges, around enormous boulders and through rock fissures. Trails offer fine views of Lake Huron. For more information call 1-800-465-6655.

Old Schoolhouse Fine Dining A vacation wouldn't be complete without a great meal and the best we had was at the Old Schoolhouse. Located in Providence Bay, this fine dining restaurant is set in an old one-room school house dating back to 1898. The ambiance is relaxing and quiet with soft lighting and music making for the perfect evening out.
