The Nipigon River Recreational Trail which runs between Nipigon and Red Rock was officially opened and affiliated with the Voyageur Trail system on September 23, 1995.
This rugged 8.2 kilometre trail allows you to view some spectacular views over Nipigon Bay. (Please use extreme caution when hiking near cliff edges. There are no barriers or signs.)

Responsibility for the upkeep of this section is the Land of the Nipigon Waterways Development Association. For more information about this area, contact the Visitor Information Centre at 807-887-3021

In August 2016 we opened the newest section of the Voyageur Trail. We haven’t updated the main trail map yet but here is a map of the Dear Lake Mountain Hiking TrailsYouTube Video
