Devil's Rock Hiking Trail

Reviewed By Villagepc - Mississauga, Canada

The walk is quite difficult in wet weather due to very slippery rocks and tree roots. Quite pretty. Wearing hiking boots recommended.

We were a group of relatives on a history search for some family info.
We stopped in for a look, and it turned into a 3 hour visit.
The display from the original Haileybury town at the time of the 1922 fire, was particular interest...as we determined that there were some conflicts with the history as we knew it.
We took the tour with a lovely young lady, who might have been surprised by the depth and quantity of questions which were fired at her! She did an admirable job fielding the questions, and wasn't afraid to admit if she didn't know the answer, but was happy to direct us to someone who might help. Much appreciated.
Nice to see the trolley, the artifacts from the fire...hear all the stories and then delve further into family history. Such a special thing.
The museum has a great variety of items to admire, including a functioning 1922 ruggles firetruck...lots of really interesting things...made all that much more special with all the stories to accompany them.
Thanks for a lovely visit.

Waterfront Boardwalk Trail

Reviewed By James F - Temiskaming Shores, Canada

Newly rebuilt boardwalk covers almost 2km of walking along the edge of Lake Temiskaming. There is lighting along the route so that it can be enjoyed into the evening. There is also a paved trail, so cyclists and skateboarders use that instead.

Lake Timiskaming

Reviewed By James F - Temiskaming Shores, Canada

Lake Temiskaming is over 80 miles long and approximately 5 miles wide at the North end. The lake is the headwaters for the Ottawa River and has been traveled for hundreds of years by explorers. The lake is one of the deepest in Ontario with depths of almost 700 feet and cliff faces reaching over 300 feet from the waters edge!
It is a clay bottom lake, therefore the water is not crystal clear, but is clean and safe to swim in. Great fishing is possible and plenty of room for various water sports.

Cobalt Mining Museum

Reviewed By Georges B - Kontich, Belgium

Cobalt is one of the areas where minerals were found, turning the place into an economical important area. The museum tells you about the discovery, the activities and the historical evolution of the area.
Unfortunately we did not have/make the time to go for a mining tour.
The museum is mainly built from gifts of people who live(d) in Cobalt. Which gives a great overview, yet also contains items that are not directly related to mining.
Superb are the archiving materials in the museum, archives that can be consulted by people researching what maybe some of their ancestors were doing in the Cobalt area.
Take as long as you need, to get a better idea about Cobalt.

Haileybury Beach

Reviewed By Micheline B - Ottawa, Canada

Lake Timiskaming is a national treasure! I was born and raised here and the changes to the waterfront have been amazing! There is history (e.g. monument 1922 fire), an art gallery, a spectacular town office, a waterslide and beach with changing rooms, bathrooms, a marina and so much more...

Cobalt Heritage Silver Trail

Reviewed By Are J - Newcastle, Canada

We parked down by the beautiful Ontario Northland Railway Station undergoing restoration, walked across the tracks to a path between the rails and the lake and walked towards rusting mine buildings at Kerr Lake Road, then across the bridge on the tracks and back downtown.
Judging by the numbers on the exhibits we went in the wrong direction and only did part of the trail but as one other reviewer noted, some upkeep and promotion is in order!
