Travel Tips for Wawa

Magpie Scenic High Falls

by Stephen-KarenConn

We expected Magpie Scenic High Falls to be an impressive sight, and it even exceeded our expectations. These roaring falls, 75 feet high and 125 feet wide, plunge into a rugged gorge that slices at an angle from the base of the falls. The scene is an enormous display of power and beauty. The spray is so great that it shoots out for a long distance into the adjacent park.

In front of the falls is an open-sided shelter, picnic tables, BBQ grill, accessible restrooms, and a large parking area. A short walking trail climbs to a viewing platform at the top of the falls, and a longer hiking trail traces the path of the river. There are also displays which provide an informative look at the history of power generation in the Michipicoten area.

Magpie Scenic High Falls are about 2.5 km (1.5 miles) south of Wawa. On the west side of Hwy. 17 is a small sign pointing down a gravel road which leads another 1.5 miles to the falls.

The season for viewing the falls is from Canada's Victoria Day Weekend to Thanksgiving.

Wawa, Ontario, Canada

by Stephen-KarenConn

Wawa, Ontario, Pop. 4,100, is a picturesque lakefront town on the Trans-Canada Highway (17), 216 km (135 miles) north of Sault Ste. Marie. It is a mining town, but better known to many people as a center for outdoor and wilderness adventures. Opportunities for boating, hiking, fishing, hunting and exploring the vast Canadian wilderness abound. We found it an ideal stop on our trip around Lake Superior. The beautiful setting alone was enough to make us fall in love with Wawa at first sight. We left reluctantly, promising ourselves that we would be back.
