“Expect to pay $5 to get half way up the butte....”
Review of Mount McKay

Mount McKay
Ranked #7 of 65 things to do in Thunder Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We were here this past weekend. The view point appears to be only about halfway up the butte...can't really call this a mountain. You drive through the indian reservation to get to the entrance only to find out they charge $5. Needless to say, we didn't pay....

Fantastic views of Thunder Bay. $5 road toll to get up the mountain . Take your lunch and sit and enjoy the view.

This is a great free way to over see all of Thunder Bay and get an idea of the size. This outlook isn't much to look at but the view is incredible. Apparently there is a trail you can hike to the top, but we could not locate a trailhead so we didn't make the climb up. Wish we had as several locals mentioned it during our stay

Road is not great, dusty and if they water it down to prevent dust it is muddy. No entry fee but the view is great on a clear day

Did not bother going all the way up when we had been traveling on dirt road and construction most of the way up and got our rental car all dirty from the dust when we saw the sign that said pay toll ahead we just headed back and did not feel it was worth it.
