Northern Ontario International Trails Day

There’s a lot of Trans Canada Trail activity in Ontario’s North and near-North: the development of the Kinghorn Trail from Thunder Bay to Nipigon; planning the Path of the Paddle water route from Pigeon River to Manitoba; and developing a plan to connect North Bay and Sudbury. This is an exciting time for us and for our local partners!

Get outside on International Trails Day (or any day you like!) and see what this wild and beautiful region has to offer.
