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
  • helped to establish the Sault Trails Action Committee (STAC) to plan and build the SSM HUB Trail.

The Saulteaux Voyageur Trail Club schedules many public outings a year including hikes, trail maintenance, snowshoes, and occasionally bushwhack skiing. 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!

The Saulteaux Section does outings in all seasons…enjoy the trail on foot…on snowshoes and skiis! We also explore area waterways (the original “voyageur trails”) in kayak and canoe.
