Remnants of the historic Ferguson Highway and the sites of old mining and logging operations can also be identified from the tower.

Temagami - Temagami is the home of the giants. In Temagami's remaining ancient forest, trees between 200 and 400 years old are not unusual. Temagami still has the densest concentration of old growth red and white pine in the world, but the area has been heavily impacted by logging since the 1940's, and is increasingly fragmented.

Temagami is a world-class canoeing area, and also has a number of interpretive trails that explore the ecology of old growth pine forests.

Temagami White Bear ForestWhite Bear Forest can be reached on foot in a few hours from the town of Temagami, or by a short boat trip on Cassels Lake.

Temagami Island has a relatively small network of trails, but the island is one of the most beautiful, dense stands of old growth pine you could hope to see. Because it is only a short boat trip from the end of the Temagami access road, and is also along many of Temagami's canoe routes, it may be the best trail for you if you have limited time, and is worth visiting under any circumstances. Read the Temagami Island trail guide on-line.

The Temagami Station was built in 1907 by the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway, now the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission (ONTC), an Ontario Crown Corporation.

By the late 1600s and early 1700s, the Hudson Bay Company built Fort Temiskaming on the east side of the lake, just north of where the lake narrows to about 200 yards in width. Here the water flows swiftly but was navigable.

TOWN OF ELK LAKE ONTARIO

Elk Lake Museum - Elk Lake’s unique background goes back hundreds, perhaps thousands of years before the arrival of the European. Remnants of Pictographs on rocks showed what were clearly trade routes used by the Cree and Anishnabai people. These routes were already well established prior to the establishment of the Fur Trade of the mid 1600s. Remnants of an Aboriginal graveyard that can be seen on the south side of town perhaps a testament to the fact that Elk Lake had an early settlement on it shores.

The Ojibway tribe named the lake after the huge herds of elk that roamed the area at this time. Fur trading remained the mainstay of the region until the early nineteenth century when the strong white and red pine trees proved ideal material for masts to be used on British sailing ships, and the need for this and other lumber for construction and newspaper use saw the many stands along the Ottawa, and eventually the Montreal rivers, mass harvested by Lumber King J.R. Booth and others.
