Neys Provincial Park is located on the northern shore of Lake Superior. Its rocky shores are home to many subarctic plants because of the cold and rough water of the lake. Despite the frigid water, the park features a gorgeous sandy beach. There are also a number of hiking trails that weave their way across different landscapes in the park, including ancient dunes, dense forests, pebble beaches, and rocky overcrops. These rugged landscapes of Neys provided much inspiration to the Group of Seven painters, most notably Lawren Harris’ and his most famous piece, Pic Island.
