The Lighthouse Trail


1904 Historic Lighthouse

We ventured deeper into Killbear Provincial Park to find this rock point with a Historic Lighthouse. A short trail wanders along the rocky shoreline of Lighthouse Point and offers fabulous views of the 30,000 Islands. Part way along the trail you pass a 1904 lighthouse that used to guide lake freighters and passenger ships into Parry Sound.

This Georgian Bay peninsula is a water lover’s paradise for swimming and sailing, fishing and boating. CAMP by a sandy beach, on a rocky shore or under the trees. Hike to lookouts for views of Parry Sound, that lonely white pine on a windswept rock or one of Georgian Bay’s spectacular sunsets.

Killbear has a new bike trail that runs parallel to the main park road from the park entrance to Lighthouse Point Campground, a distance of 6 kilometers. This trail will eventually serve as the anchor for a multi-use recreational trail that will run from Killbear Provincial Park to Algonquin Provincial Park and connect with the Trans Canada Trail Network.

  1. I like how the lines of the rocks lead you into the frame to the lighthouse. Nice work.
