Terrace Bay, Ontario
Terrace Bay is located at the top of Lake Superior, along one of the most scenic parts of the North Shore. The township is known for its incredible beauty, proud forestry history and numerous visitor attractions.
Terrace Bay recently completed a major revitalization of Simcoe Plaza, the downtown of the community. The project included landscaping and sidewalk improvements and the construction of the 50 foot tall Terrace Bay Lighthouse attraction. Visitors can climb the lighthouse and take in breathtaking views of Lake Superior and the Slate Islands then stop at one of the plaza stores or eating establishments for some shopping or dining.
Just west of the township is the majestic 100-foot Aguasabon Falls & Gorge. The view of the gorge is spectacular and additional trails lead you down to the sandy Terrace Bay Beach or the Lake Superior shoreline where you can also access the amazing Casque Isles Hiking Trail.
If you like to golf then you must experience the beautiful 9-hole Aguasabon Golf Course, which scenically overlooks Lake Superior. The clubhouse offers rentals, licensed dining and a driving range.
During winter, the Trestle Ridge Ski Hill offers downhill skiing and snowboarding. For snowmobilers, the Lake Superior Family Snowgoers groom and maintain 210 kilometres of snowmobiling trails, part of the OFSC trail system. The cross country ski club also grooms trails at Rainbow Falls Provincial Park.
