Why choose a trail at Parc provincial de Killarney?

Since 1981, visitors from all over the world have come to Killarney by boat, plane or car to enjoy some of the best fresh fish and French fries around. Over the previous 32 years, the famous red and white school bus with picnic tables on the dock overlooking George Island and Georgian Bay has become a well-known landmark, and Herbert Fisheries has been recognized by Canadian Living magazine as one of Canada's top ten fish and French fry restaurants!

With the opening of the first Herbert World Famous Fish & Chips restaurant in Greater Sudbury, you can now enjoy the same fresh fish year round. Hiking is popular for a variety of reasons, one of which is the variety of scenic views. The hike up Mount Dome is more than enough for us at this point.
