Ideal for overnight backpacking as well as shorter day hikes, this rugged route is the backbone of the park’s trail network. Starting at Thunder Bay Lookout (the North Kabeyun Trailhead), the trail passes Clavet Bay, Hoorigan Bay and Sawyer Bay, before rounding the Sleeping Giant’s Feet at the tip of the Sibley Peninsula and ending at the South Kabeyun Trailhead adjacent to Highway 587. Beaches and coves offer scenic rest points along the trail. Though Lake Superior is never far away, this trail is mostly inland and not a true coastal-route. Vast distances separate campsites and proper planning is essential for those looking to complete the entire trail. The section between the Sleeping Giant’s feet and Lehtinen’s Bay involves scrambling over a talus slope which can be very challenging in wet conditions. Popular side-spurs from the Kabeyun Trail include the Tee Harbour Trail, the Thunder Cape Trail, the Sea Lion Trail, and the Head Trail. For more information on the Kabeyun Trail, please call the park office at 807-977-2526.
