  • Beautiful sunsets
  • Tropical birds on migration
  • Easy access

Point Pelee is located in southwestern Ontario, Canada. Although it is located in a Northern Country, the national park lies on the 42nd Parallel, making it the same latitude as northern California, Barcelona and Rome. Due to its southernly location and mediterranean climate, the area is prone to a wide migration of tropical birds, as well as stunning sunsets. It is also susceptible to very strong currents at the tip, making it dangerous for swimming.

As you enter the national park, you find yourself driving through a thick forested area until you get close to the most southern tip of Canada. The park then opens up to a beach that dips down into Lake Erie.

The parking lot for the trail is just outside of Prince Rupert and right off of Highway 16W. This hike is an easy hike, with some hills, through a beautiful coastal rainforest.

Explore Bijoux Falls

Canada / Bijoux Falls

Bijoux Falls is a lovely tiered waterfall right along side highway 97N. It's a great place to stop and take a break to stretch the legs no matter which direction you are heading.
