Nipigon River Trail
Length: 9km (2.5-3.5 hours)
Terrain: Some steep areas, inclined, swamp/flat
Relatively easy on either end and more challenging in the middle with steep areas, ravines and staircases.
Always carry a pack with some snacks and enough water for the trip. Pack a picnic lunch for one of the many vistas with picnic tables long the trail.
Carry bug spray and a whistle. Pay attention and don’t try a section if you don’t think you can make it.
1. Lloyd’s Lookout
2. Nipigon Bay Lookout
3. Eagles Ridge
4. Sawmill Point
Toilets are supplied along the trail at various locations.
If you just looking for a nice flat trail, an abandoned (rails removed) CN railway runs through Nipigon to Red Rock along the shores of the Nipigon River.
The abandoned rail line is use at your own risk – it is not maintained.
Stay off the active CP rail line located next to it.
