Eau Claire Gorge Conservation Area Calvin Township, 400 acres
Day Use Recreation Area
Like the aboriginal peoples, voyageurs and loggers whose footsteps echo in the history of this area, you'll hear the roar of the Eau Claire Gorge waterfalls before you see them. Preserving the distinctive natural and historic features of the picturesque Amable du Fond River and the Eau Claire Gorge was key to the purchase of the land in 1976.
A self - guided 1.9 km interpretive trail details the natural and human history of the area, including a log slide and dam built on the property in the 1870s for the Mackey Lumber Company. A logger's cabin, found along the trail, was reconstructed in 1989. Please note the cabin is for day use only - overnight stays and campfires are not permitted.
Directions: From Highway 17, travel east towards Mattawa. Turn on Highway 630 and follow the signs. Entrance to Eau Claire Gorge is on the right.
