Moose Mountain Trail

South River

Discovery Routes

Description

This beautiful trail, managed by Forgotten Trails, a volunteer trail group based out of South River, offers a spectacular view from the top of what is locally known as Moose Mountain. While this isn’t really a ‘mountain’ in the true sense of the word, hikers should be prepared for a moderate climb. Once at the top, visitors will be greeted with a beautiful view of the surrounding landscape and farmlands.

Directions

From the HWY 11/17 junction near Seymour Street, head southeast on HWY 11 for about 57 km (35.4 mi) to the Village of South River. Turn left at Ottawa Street. Continue onto Chemical Road for approximately 16.3 km (10.1 mi). Turn left onto Forestry Road. The trail is located on the left hand side of the road roughly 2.2 km (1.4 mi) ahead though signage may not be visible.

The vast network of trails we celebrate exist on the traditional lands and waterways of the Anishinaabe people within the territory protected by the Robinson Huron Treaty of 1850 and Williams Treaties of 1923.
