This is a partial description of the tour as provided on the web site:

The Deer Trail begins at the intersection of Highway 17 East (the Trans Canada Highway) and Highway 108 leading you north towards Elliot Lake. For an early rest stop and a scenic view, pull in at Depot Lake, located just a few kilometres into the drive.

Stop at the Fire Tower Lookout by turning off Highway 108 down Milliken Road and follow the signs. From the lookout you will not only be able to see Elliot Lake, but as far as Manitoulin Island and the United States.

23 kilometres north of Elliot Lake, Hwy. 108 becomes Hwy. 639. This will take you past the Mississagi Provincial Park. The park features 90 campsites, a boat launch, hiking trails, canoeing, a natural and historical exhibit centre and is a great place for camping if you feel like breaking up the drive.

Along the way down Highway 546 which takes you back to the Trans Canada Highway, you will see the Mississagi River, once the route of fur traders and the infamous Grey Owl.

Just before you end this drive, you will pass Bells Falls. In addition to having some excellent fishing, the falls is a great place to sit, relax and take in nature. This drive ends as Highway 546 comes out at Iron Bridge, Ontario.
