Hike to the Sea Lion of Sleeping Giant Provincial Park

Kabeyun Trail

A short rewarding hike to a rock formation and stunning views of Lake Superior.

Prior to the 1900s, this landmark a lion sitting on its haunches looking out to Perry Bay. The former shape of this natural arch inspired its name the Sea Lion. The lions head has fallen of but the name still continues. The softer sedimentary rock will continue to erode. The "arch" of the sea lion will eventually collapse possibly leaving a stack in Lake Superior. Over time the entire section from the shoreline will disappear. 

To get here park at the kabeyun trail head parking lot. Follow the trail about half mile down the trail. You'll see a sign for sea lion 500m to your left. The trail will branch off to different view points and down to the beach shoreline. Keep following it to the left. Currently there are some down trees and you will have to climb over them. Continue until you reach the green fenced off area and you will know you have arrived. Take in the views as some day this will be gone.

Short and scenic hike

Fairly easy hike to a rewarding view of the Sea Lion and Lake Superior. A few miles drive or bike ride from the Marie Louise Lake Campground to the trail head. Nice for a sunset walk
