The Walleye Trail Guide

“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt,” said renowned 19th-century conservationist and naturalist John Muir. Here in Thunder Bay and the surrounding area, we are truly lucky to have an excellent variety of paths—dirt, gravel, and otherwise—so we can explore our beautiful landscapes that calm the mind and nourish the senses. In this issue of The Walleye, take a closer look at 16 of the local trails we love. We hope you’re inspired to discover a new go-to or to revisit an old favourite…or all 16!

August 2023: The Walleye Trail Guide

GOur cover story is all about our favourite places to hike and walk in and around Thunder Bay, where several of our writers give you the lowdown on what to expect when visiting these spots. We’ve also included a photographic look at how some of them have changed over the decades. Also in our cover story, Justin Allec speaks with Lakehead Search and Rescue about what to do and what not to do when going for a hike, and Kris Ketonen has the story about the Northwestern Ontario Recreational Trails Association and their plans to expand hiking in the region.
