Every year on the last Saturday of September, the Hike for Health is held along the Nipigon River Recreation Trail in order to raise monies for local and area needs.

During the rugged 10 km trek hikers enjoy spectacular views from three lookouts over Nipigon Bay on Lake Superior, and later relax on the leisurely portion of the trail beside the Nipigon River and its wetlands.


The day begins with a bus ride from the Nipigon trailhead to Red Rock, where hikers are greeted with a free continental breakfast. Water stations are available along the hike, and a free lunch and entertainment greet the hikers at trail’s end in Nipigon.

This trail is challenging, with rugged terrain and long stairs. Appropriate hiking footwear and clothing is recommended. Spectacular views make it well worth the effort!
