Marathon Section of the Voyageur Trail


This Marathon Section of the Voyageur Trail goes from Sturdee Cove south 5.7 km to the town of Marathon. South of Marathon the trail continues for an additional 25.4 km to the mouth of the Pic River, passing Penn Lake, a side trail to Hawk’s Ridge, and Heron Bay along the way.

South of Heron Bay the trail is called the Kwewiskaning Trail and Boardwalk. This trail was developed in 2013 by the Ojibways of the Pic River First Nation as part of their development plan for the mouth of the Pic River. It includes 300 m of boardwalk at the mouth of the Pic River with two lookout stations and four interpretive signs, trail markings to the end of the beach, and a loop trail system with the return loop heading back to the beach using an old Aboriginal trail.

The trail is now part of the Voyageur Hiking Trail, which is an association of trails between Thunder Bay and Sudbury, including areas in Pukaskwa National Park and Lake Superior Provincial Park.  All of these trails have been designated Trans Canada Trail.  A guide to the Marathon Trail (with maps) can be found in the Voyageur Hiking Trail Guidebook (2014 edition), which can be obtained from the Voyageur Hiking Trail Association.
