This exciting greenbelt through the heart of North Bay links with the Kate Pace Way near the waterfront. The Kinsmen Trail, a parallel paved surface, follows Chippewa Creek as it meanders down the escarpment and empties into Lake Nipissing. The parkway presents countless opportunities for recreation, education, and alternatives in transportation. It's the perfect paved surface for bikers and in-line skaters. The trail's easy grade makes walking comfortable for those who are young or young at heart. The trail crosses a busy Main Street via an overhead, free-span bridge on its way to linking up with the Kate Pace Way. The trail has an asphalt surface and has partial wheelchair access. It is part of North Bay's section of the Trans Canada Trail.
From the HWY 11/17 junction near Seymour Street, head northwest on HWY 11/17. Turn right onto Algonquin Avenue/HWY 11, and right onto Airport Road. The trailhead will be found on the right hand side. The parkway presents countless opportunities for recreation, education, and alternatives in transportation. The trail's easy grade makes walking comfortable for those who are young or young at heart.
