This 8.2 km hiking trail, which connects the Nipigon and Red Rock marinas, takes between 2 ½ to 3 hours to complete.
The trail from Nipigon hugs the shoreline of the Nipigon River as far as Sawmill Point. This part of the trail is easy walking and affords the hiker a chance to view the wildlife on the river, including bald eagles, blue herons, peregrine falcon, pelicans, and a variety of waterfowl. Moose, deer, otter and beaver may also be seen along the trail in the summer, and in the winter wolves and fox are sometimes observed on the frozen river.
At one point the trail crosses a causeway where there is a viewing deck giving the hiker views up and down the river. Interpretive signage has been provided along the trail…..more
