I like Cascades too, in Thunder Bay. I also enjoy a walk/run around Boulevard Lake. The wonderful thing about Thunder Bay, is no matter where you turn, there is a wonderful place to go, within 10, 15, or 30 minutes. I think I'll try to go out for hikes more often. I recently tried kayaking and loved it. Now I need to find the money to buy one and get on the water as often as possibe - It was an entire body workout, let me tell you! Cheers!
Thunder Bay has tons of trails, inside the city and lots of hiking trails in the parks and places surrounding it. I especially love Cascades Park, which has a nice loop for hiking and biking and you can walk out on the rocks to look at the water. Haven't been there this year though - kids... Also love Centennial Park, which has tons of stuff for the kids and a great network of trails.
I think that any place in Northern Ontario is beautiful! We are so very lucky to live in 'God's Country'... I'm particular to North Eastern Ontario (only because that's where I live)... I live in Connaught, a very small little village about 20 minutes outside of Timmins. I wouldn't go back to living in Southern Ontario for anything. I can walk out my front door and take a walk along the river or the lake... I'm surrounded by nature and wouldn't have it any other way!
There are some really fantastic trails in the Kenora area. I especially like the Vernon Trails down the MacKenzie Portage Rd and the trails on Tunnel Island. You have a choice of distance and terrain. Plus I find it a great way to take my kids out and let them run and not worry about traffic
