Here's a little Saulteaux (pronounced Sue-toe) Club history...

- first section built: Maki Road to Goulais Avenue on November 23, 1974
- whole section officially opened on September 21, 1975 at a ceremony at Gros Cap before a crowd of approximately 150 people
- first New Year's outing was held in 1975
- first Mother's Day outing was held in 1986
- helped to establish the Sault Trails Action Committee (STAC) to plan and build the SSM HUB Trail.

The Saulteaux Voyageur Trail Club schedules over 30 outings a year including hikes, trail maintenance, snowshoes, bushwhack skiis and backpacking. You do NOT have to be fit to participate! We schedule several outings a year for small children and/or beginners. If in doubt, call the leader. He/She will be most willing to let you know how long you can expect to be out and what kind of terrain you may be covering. Then decide if that particular outing is for you. Come out and try us out! You are more than welcome!
