Probably one of the most well known sites beside the sleeping giant itself is the sea lion. The Sea Lion Trail a must hike trail while on your visit to Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. You may look at photos of the sea lion today and say ‘I don’t see the shape of a sea lion?’. Well that is because his head fell off unfortunately. Prior to the 1900’s, this landmark was one of a lion sitting on his haunches looking into Perry Bay. The lions head has thus fallen off but his name still continues. The softer rock continues to erode as the seasons change and Lake Superior continues to slam into it. One day the arch of the sea lion will fall into Lake Superior just leaving a stack.

Directions for Hiking the Sea Lion

Drive to the Kabeyun Trail Head Parking lot. From the parking lot follow the Kabeyun to Tee Harbour trail about a kilometre down the path and you will see a sign for the sea lion.

Here we bumped into a few gentlemen who were having a hard time finding the pathway. It is not an obvious foot path as you have to hike up along the rocks to get to the view point. It is not a hard hike just not the most of obvious paths. Make sure to follow the blue hiking signs tacked to the trees.

The trail will branch off to a few different view points and down to the beach shoreline. If you are not in a rush make sure to head down to the beach as it is a beautiful view and often no one is there.

Continue heading up the trail until you reach the green fenced off area and you will know you have arrived. Enjoy the beautiful views of the sea lion but be sure to be careful of the crumbling rock all around the edges. Enjoy hiking the Sea Lion! Here are some of our photos from the various view points of it.

Great post right here. One thing I would really like to say is most professional fields consider the Bachelors Degree just as the entry level requirement for an online certification. Whilst Associate College diplomas are a great way to start out, completing a person’s Bachelors reveals many good opportunities to various employment goodies, there are numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions give Online editions of their degree programs but normally for a significantly higher cost than the providers that specialize in online diploma plans.
