    Route Description for Mansons Landing Loop Trail

    Hiking the Mansons Landing Loop is a great way to explore some of the different landscapes that can be found on Cortes Island. From the trailhead, hikers will head to the southeast through Mansons Landing Provincial Park and enjoy views that stretch out across the coastal terrain. From here, the trail will turn more to the east and head through a large stretch of scenic forest before arriving at the shores of Gunflint Lake.
