There are many hiking trails within the Township for you to enjoy. Here is a list of each trail, description, and directions.

Sioux Narrows:

 Aspen Trail:
(4k-Single loop) This is a simple forest trail used all year with a couple moderate grade hills. Location: North of Sioux Narrows, turn down Dubois Rd, then drive 1km until you see the trailhead and free parking area on the left. Click here for directions

 

 

Fern Valley:
(4k-Multiple entrances) This is the only trail that runs through Sioux Narrows Provincial Park. Parking is free at the Aspen trailhead, and Fern Valley has an entrance visible across the road. Other entrances include the main park entrance, and the beach in the park. As an option, you could get a day pass to park a vehicle within the park, go hiking, enjoy the beach, have a picnic, then get a cool treat at the guardhouse on your way to another adventure!

(Red tape, waiting times, and delays have pushed back this project until sometime 2024)

 


 

Nestor Falls:

Boreal Trail:
(7k-Short/long loop) This majestic hike starts off easy then has lots of ups and downs for the adventurous hiker. Between the beautiful views, you will find peace at the various sitting areas. The short loop is a little easier, but still has moderate hills. The long loop is difficult for its varying terrain, grade of hills, and distance. Don’t let the rating scare you! The views are worth it all. Located south of Nestor Falls at the information center. Click here for directions

 

Red Pine:
(6k-Maze style w/long loop) This trail has easy sections at the beginning, and difficult areas with hills around the perimeter. This trail is very unique for its maze like qualities and gentle hills making for an easier trail, but if you want a more difficult hike with length and grade, its there for you along the perimeter. Located down Airport Rd, drive 0.5k and you will see the sign on the right. Click here for directions
UPDATE: There are now 3 different trails that have been made for Mountain bikes!


Caliper Park Nature Trail:

Double loop (Trail closed due to downed trees, Also closed in winter)
