Pigeon River Provincial Park is a day use park located on Lake Superior and the mouth of the Pigeon River at the Canada United States Border.
A network of walking and hiking trails begin at the Ontario Travel Centre located by the Canada Customs Border Station. A short accessible boardwalk brings you to the shore of Lake Superior and views of Finger Point and the lands of the Grand Portage Band. The nearby beach is covered in bark chips and logs remnants of the logging era when Pigeon Bay was used to boom logs before being shipped to nearby mills.
A 2 kilometre hiking trail either through the forest or along the beach brings you to the Finger Point Lookout, on a clear day the shores of Lake Superior in Ontario and Minnesota as well as Isle Royale in Michigan and if the conditions are just right the outline of the Apostle Islands in Wisconsin are all visible from this lookout.
Heading back towards the Ontario Travel Centre the most popular trail is the High Falls Trail with views of High Falls shared with Grand Portage State Park located across the river. Feel the mist while enjoying the view of this 30 metre waterfall as it drops into a narrow gorge on its way to Lake Superior. A new trail now connects the High Falls trail to Middle Falls, located 5 kilometres upriver this 6 metre waterfall is just as spectacular. It can also be viewed from Highway 593 for those unable to hike the trails.
Pigeon River Provincial Park lies within the Boreal Forest but has influences of the Great Lakes St Lawrence Forest. Typical forest inhabitants include the White Tailed Deer, Black Bear, Moose, Red Fox and Snowshoe Hare. The forest type is White and Black Spruce, Balsam Fir, White Birch and trembling Aspen. Some large Eastern White Cedar and White and Red Pine are seen from the hiking trails.
Pigeon River Provincial Park is part of the Boundary Waters - Voyageur Waterway a Canadian Heritage River designation celebrating the cultural, natural and recreational values of the waterway from Lake Superior through the Quetico area.
