The Thunder Bay Recreational Trail System offers a good excuse to hike, jog, walk, cycle or in-line skate. 34 kilometres (21 miles) of multi-purpose recreational trails hug rivers and lakes, and provide quick access to recreation centres, attractions, shopping, business and residential areas.
Since early 1999, a local group of volunteers has been working to enhance and continue building shared-use trails in our area. Our ultimate goal is to build trails that stretch from Fort William Historical Park through the city to the Terry Fox Lookout and the waterfront.
Working with the City of Thunder Bay and other partners, Thunder Bay Recreational Trails is developing a long term trail building plan.
Please support our vision to unite our city by trail, linking neighbourhoods, parks and tourist attractions. Supported by the Thunder Bay Hiking Association is a non-profit volunteer organization that promotes hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing in the Thunder Bay area, Northwestern Ontario and Northern Minnesota.
The TBHA offers mid-week, half-day, and full day hikes in all four seasons, as well as weekend backpacking and canoeing outings. It has assisted with the clean-up of local trails and published a Trail Guide containing information on a variety of local trails. This guide may be purchased through the TBHA or at local outdoor stores.
