Parry Sound is an active community and has a number of scenic trails available for everyone to enjoy!
The Town of Parry Sound owns and maintains the well-known Rotary and the Algonquin Regiment Waterfront Trail, a 6 kilometre trail that hugs the shore of Georgian Bay. Known locally as the 'Fitness Trail', one will find a number of interpretive plaques along the way. Crushed granite lines the trail making it suitable for walking, running, hiking, cycling and wheelchairs. In winter months, the Fitness Trail becomes part of the Parry Sound Snowmobile Club's trail network. Trail heads can be found at the bottom of Bay Street, Champagne Street, Prospect Street or Salt Dock Road.
The Northshore Rugged Trail is just that, a rugged trail that follows the Georgian Bay shore. This area is a dog off-leash area with the trail head located at the bottom of Salt Dock Road.
Get active and enjoy the many trails!
