Hiking & Walking

Take advantage of the superb Northern Ontario hiking trails. Choose from a casual day hike or a more challenging extended trip. The City of Thunder Bay has an extensive recreational trail system throughout the community for walkers, joggers, and cyclists.

Our TrailS

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. Learn more and access trail maps

You can also broaden your horizons by taking a trek on one of the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority trails in the region.

Thunder Bay Hiking Association

The Thunder Bay Hiking Association (TBHA) is a non-profit volunteer organization that promotes hiking, kayaking, 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. 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 at local outdoor stores.
