This trail loops around the Southern end of Beausoleil Island. It is well marked and can be mountain biked, hiked or run. Snowmobile and snowshoe in the Winter months. The Beausoleil Island web site has an easy to follow trail map. This part of the Island is relatively flat with little elevation change. Most of the trail is tree lined and shady except for a portion on the East side of island. The views and beaches on the West side are completely different from the East. This trail connects to the trails on the Northern part of the island where the geography changes to Canadian Shield with its Cambrian rocky outcrops.

We did the loop trail, starting along the coast to the lightkeeper's station, and then back towards the interior of the island. The coastal part is easy and flat, although the second part of the loop through the island interior is significantly more rocky and might not be the best choice for parents with small children or people with joint problems.
