Visit Bon Echo Provincial Park to see the famous Mazinaw Rock, a steep, 1.5 kilometer wall of rock that shoots straight out of Mazinaw Lake for 100 meters towards the far reaches of the sky. Paddlers can canoe or kayak around the rock and hikers can climb to its summit for a wonderful view out over the lake, the second deepest lake in Ontario.
Bon Echo, located 30 minutes north of Kaladar, is also home to the largest visible collection of native pictographs in Canada. You can view and photograph the 260 rock paintings spread across Mazinaw Rock. Camp at one of the park’s many campsites; there are also 25 canoe-in sites along Joeperry and Pearson Lake. During the summer months you can take the ferry across Mazinaw Lake to the base of the Clifftop Trail.
