The keepers of the land...

Our mission is to conserve the unique beauty and ecological integrity of key areas within the Algoma Highlands region, creating sanctuaries that protect the ecological function and habitat requirements of many native plant and animal species. At the same time, we wish to encourage human access and visitation to these areas both for low impact recreational use and enhanced understanding and appreciation of the natural wonders of the highlands area. All those interested in bird watching, wildlife photography, silent sport recreation, or simply communing with nature to clear the mind and soothe the soul are encouraged to join us in our conservation efforts.


The Algoma Highlands Conservancy has four fundamental principles: Conservation, Silent Sport Recreation, Sustainable Forestry, and Environmental Education and Research.

STOKELY CREEK LODGE

 

Welcome to one of North America's premiere X-Country Ski Resorts. Well known in the winter, Stokely's best kept secret is that when the snow melts, it becomes the jumpoff point for world class trail running bliss. 


With over 160 km of diverse single and double track terrain, by the end of the day this backcountry network of groomed and not so groomed trail, will etch itself in your memory forever.


Nestled amongst the tumbling waterfalls of Stokely Creek let this intricate network of old world chalets be the start and finish to your epic day on trail at Ultra Trail Stokely Creek.


Be sure to  stay the weekend to and enjoy the rugged ambience as you recharge amongst the pristine nature of the Highlands. Booking links below.

WHAT? YOU STILL HAVEN'T REGISTERED?

So now you've seen what Northern Ontario trail running has to offer, what's the holdup? Don't like hills? cliffs? Scenic mountain views with crisp fall air? Are you against sweet SWAG and group camaraderie? Don't like the feeling of your thighs burning after a tricky technical downhill? Are you systematically opposed to getting a free craft beer and donating a portion of every registration to the Sault Ste. Marie Humane Society? We guess those are all decent excuses to not sign up. For everyone now convinced..................Pack your things................... It's time to go north......  

THANK YOU TO OUR PARTNERS!
