About 60 kilometres (37 miles) northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario lies Ouimet Canyon in Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park. Flying over the Canyon with an aerial view, a person can easily see the steep rock walls of the gorge which are about 100 metres (328 feet) high. The Canyon itself is about 150 metres (492 feet) wide and about 2 kilometres (1.24 miles) in length and contains rare artic-alpine flowers and plants along its rock-strewn floor, plants that are normally found only 1000 kilometres (621 miles) further north.

A walkway has been constructed partially of boardwalk and partially of trails, leading to viewing platforms in this day-use only provincial park. A large rock formation known as Indian Head can be seen clearly from one of the viewing platforms. Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park covers some 7.77 square kilometres (3 square miles) and visitors are requested to remain on the trails for their own safety.

Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park can be found 11 kilometres (6.83 miles) off Highway 11/17 on the Ouimet Canyon Road in Dorion, Ontario. Once a CPR railway station was located nearby, the Ouimet Station. The Park takes its name from that station; the station itself was named after the Minister of Public Works from 1892-1896, Joseph Aldric Ouimet.
