What’s Up in Parry Sound This Week? (October 13-19, 2014)

Parry Sound is alive and well this week, with lots of activities available to keep the outdoor enthusiast busy and happy. There are trails to hikingexplore for people of every level of fitness and ambition.

The least onerous trail is the Algonquin Regiment Fitness Trail, a 2.5 km trail that follows Parry Sound’s waterfront. It is a multi-purpose trail, which means you can walk, run, or bike it. If you reach the end, and feel like carrying on, the trail extends for another 2.5 k.m. along the shore road allowance and is referred to a “rugged hiking trail” at this point – there can be rocks, logs and/or other items blocking parts of the path.

If you are looking for a more ambitious hike, there are two portions of the Park-to-Park Trail (developed to connect Killbear Provincial Park with Algonquin Provincial Park through utilizing existing multi-use trails in the area.). Two of the most popular trails in the Parry Sound area are the Rose Point and the Seguin Recreational Trail.
