56 kilometres of spectacular Northern Ontario landscape which runs between Hwy. 638 (north of Bruce Mines) and Iron Bridge. The trail runs parallel to the Trans Canada Highway (north of it) and passes by many inland lakes, picturesque beaver ponds, forest overlooks and the Mississaugi River. Main supply points occur in Iron Bridge, and some distance north and/or south of the trail at Hwy. 638 and 129.

There are "No Trespassing" signs posted on the trail east from Melwel Road towards Iron Bridge. We are currently trying to resolve this. Please check with a local representative for current status.
Thinning will be taking place in the Kirkwood Forest area. Hikers encountering logging activity should use extreme care in using the trail.
Logging companies are required to keep the VTA trail clear of slash or other obstructions. If hikers encounter logging activity obstructions on the trail they should contact the Forest Management Companies, or Bob Sinclair (705-946-3126).
