Mike and Kate explore the cobbled beaches, rock faces and bluffs that highlight the rugged characteristics of Gros Cap on the Voyager Hiking Trail ... including a wind turbine farm. The geology of Gros Cap is unusual because the property is situated on a batholith, a large deep-seated body of intrusive igneous rock consisting of coarse-grained granite rock. This was created when the magma (hot liquid rock) miles below forced its way upward. The 40 kilometer (25 mile) Saulteaux section of the Voyageurs Trail starts in the Gros Cap Conservation Area and runs through to the Hiawatha Conservation Area.
