Heading west from Little Current, Hwy-540 ducks and weaves its way right along the northern edge of Manitoulin, giving long, lingering views over the North Channel. The road also accesses several popular hiking trails, notably the 12km-long Cup and Saucer Lookout Trail, which starts near – and is signposted from – the junction of Hwy-540 and Bidwell Rd, about 20km from Little Current. The trail reaches the highest point of the island (460m) and involves climbing rough wooden ladders and squeezing through natural rock chimneys.
