2.3 mile loop trail - There is a sturdy metal bridge that crosses the river about a kilometre upstream from the base of the falls and connects the eastern and western trails giving hikers the perfect place to complete a short loop


This is one of my favourite places in the area. It is beautiful year around, though hiking in the winter might require snowhoes due to the steep incline on the way up. I would say the incline is moderate. The initial incline is quite steep, though it levels off half way up the waterfall. You can cross over the water at the first bridge, about 10-15 minutes walk up the the trail. It is possible to walk all the way to Canadore College via their trail system.

A 10+ kilometre trail network spans the Woods offering excellent opportunities for hiking and wildlife viewing - 97 hectare (240 acre) encompasses a provincially significant wetland, rocky outcrops and upland forest

Mon - Sun Open 24 hours

We decided to take a couple of nature walks this spring and went to Laurier Woods twice. It's a great spot and the people that maintain the park's boardwalks, signage and trails do an excellent job. Lisa's Dog House generously installed a very nice station for dog clean-up bags, park brochures and a trash can. It's at the beginning of the main trail and it is very professional. The sign does appear to have had some vandalism because one corner is bent.

Free Admission - Visitors can hike a number of trails on the 132 acres - Spectacular view of the City of North Bay, Lake Nipissing & the surrounding area


This is a fantastic place to hike. Start at the ski hill and pick a direction. The landscape changes which is awesome and you literally walk for hours and not cross the same trail twice. I dont have the location, but one of the trails will take you to the old downhill ski jump (well a tiny momument and few pieces). There are some nice board walks, little streams to cross and along the hydro line a great view of the city. I have biked, hike, ran these trails and they are one of my favorites.
