The Terry Fox lookout is a must. Let's face it anyone who runs from Halifax to Thunder Bay on one good leg (full intention of making it to Victoria BC) has created a credibility deserving to passerbys to take a ten minute peek, also offering a breath taking view of Lake Superior and one of Canada's great wonders The Sleeping...

Great place to have a quick pit stop and read about Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope, if you don't already know about it. Easy in and out from Highway 17.

Well Done tribute to a great Canadian. Well landscaped with numerous picnic tables to enjoy a lunch before or just reflect. Tremendous view of Thunder Bay. Accessible from either direction.

When I told one of my sisters that I was going to Thunder Bay she said I just had to visit the monument. I'm glad she told me about it and my other sister who I went with said that they always stop there on their way to Thunder Bay.

A great person lost too young. It is a real sobering place. I spent two years in Thunder Bay but never visited the monument. I did this year when just passing through. It is a must stop for any Canadian on the journey by.
