Killarney Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada With Jeff Mead


“What drew me to Killarney was the rocks. The thought of bright white peaks glowing in the moonlight, turned pink by the rising sun, and reflecting majestically in mirror-like wilderness lakes was too much to resist.  I set off on a thirteen day solo canoe trip making a loop through the park.”

Join us for an introduction to Killarney Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada by Jeff Mead, who will be sharing his experiences from two backcountry canoe trips there. Killarney, to the east of Georgian Bay off Lake Huron, features exceptionally scenic landscapes, rugged windswept islands and crystal clear lakes nestled between pink granite ledges beneath white quartzite mountains.  It is a backcountry paradise for paddlers and backpackers, and also offers family style car camping with exceptional day hikes and paddles.
 
Killarney is defined by the La Cloche Mountains, which are more ancient and originally taller than the Rockies. Formed billions of years ago, they were worn to their current rounded shape over the past million years by glaciers advancing and retreating four times.  Silver Peak, the highest in the park, now 1,782 feet, is as smooth as a polished countertop in many places.  Much of the park features this exposed white quartzite. Bright white peaks and ridges over turquoise lakes make for the exception beauty that draws visitors there year after year.

The area has long captivated artists including Canada’s “The Group of Seven”, so much so, that they persuaded the Ontario government to make it a park. Extensive backcountry canoeing and sea kayaking experiences and outstanding hiking including the 80 km, looped, La Cloche-Silhouette Trail, as well as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter, beckon wilderness lovers year round.

Come out to learn about this magnificent provincial park just a seven hour drive away.  Even if you never plan to explore the park yourself, join us to enjoy photos of Killarney’s exceptional beauty.
