On Saturday September 1st, 2012 the Voyageur Trail Association welcomed its first new Club in over 30 years. The Nor’wester Voyageur Trail Club spans from the Casque Isle Trail VTA Club north through the communities of Nipigon, Red Rock, Dorion, Hurkett, Shuniah, Thunder Bay and Neebing to the Ontario / Minnesota border at Pigeon River.

Inquiries about the Club and its activities can be directed to Kirsten Spence, Nor’Wester Club Representative.

HIKE VIDEO.

On Sunday October 21st, 2012 members of the Nor’Wester Trail Club and friends hiked through Pigeon River Provincial Park at the Canada / US border to High Falls. This was an easy / moderate hike, however, if you aren’t good with heights, parts of the trail can get intimidating! Along the way, hikers stopped to view the only 2 remaining structures from an old “resort” that lie on the shore of the Pigeon River. This video was shot, compiled and edited by Club Member Steve Johnston of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Thanks Steve!
