Description

Landon Bay: granite-lined fiord, cliff-top Islands to Adirondack views, nature camp, fabulous trails, rich wildlife, inspiration for the soul

A truly Amazing Place, no matter how you look at it! Landon Bay is about five kilometers east of Gananoque.

It is one of the largest bays in the Thousand Islands, and extends nearly two kilometers inland. It is broad and shallow where it opens onto the river, making it a key spawning area for fish and vital refuge for turtles.

About halfway in, it abruptly narrows and becomes dramatically confined between steep, high granite rock walls. The fjord-like bay inspires all those who paddle in summer, ski and snowshoe in favorable winters, and those who run the trails year round.

One of the best viewpoints in the region is from the cliff-top Landon Bay Lookout, an easy ½ km. woodland walk from the recreation area within the Landon Bay Centre.

On a clear day, you can see up and down the island-jeweled river, and see the steep rolling hills of the Adirondack Mountains. The trail to the lookout meanders through rich woodlands, so ecologically rich that the path passes through a study plot of the Smithsonian Institute.

Short Run: Take Donevan Trail to Lookout Trail. Landon Bay Lookout is slightly over 500m from the parking lot.
