Mount McRae sits in the northern end of the mountain system of mafic sills, known as Nor'Wester Mountains. Extending south of Thunder Bay, Nor'Wester Mountains define the landscape immediately after crossing to Canada and driving along Provincial Route 61. Mount McRae's northern neighbor, Mount McKay, the tallest of these mountains, looms over Thunder Bay and is the city's defining landmark.

Getting There 

After crossing into Canada, drive ~30 miles north on Provincial Route 61 and turn right onto Mountain Road (sign). Continue for about 2 miles, turn right onto Feaver Rd and drive to its end with a small paved parking lot at the trailhead.
