The Timmins Recreation Trail Network is designed to provide walkers, hikers and cyclists with convenient and safe access to the great outdoors in and around the City of Timmins. The network includes the popular walking oval at Gillies Lake, the wilderness trails at the Hersey Lake Conservation Area and the scenic strolls available at Porcupine Lake.
The operation, maintenance and development of the trail system is coordinated through the Timmins Recreation Trail Committee, a partnership of volunteers established in 1979 with the common goal of creating a first-class community trail network.
To date, the Committee has successfully developed 50 km of trail with more planned for the future. Rest stops in the form of benches, scenic lookouts and picnic tables have been constructed at many locations. Brochures and pamphlets highlighting the many special sites and features along the trail system are available. Signage marking distance and direction are in place for the entire trail system.
