discoveryroutes.ca – Discovery Routes Trails Organization - Discovery Routes is a not-for-profit trails organization that market and promotes recreational trails across the Near North region of Ontario.

South River Area Trails

The Forgotten Trails Association creates, maintains and promotes safe and ecologically sustainable trails of natural or historical significance in the South River area.  These four-season back-country trails are managed for the purpose of non-motorized recreational trail activities.  The trails are managed by volunteers and promoted through local resource-based ecotourism initiatives.  You can download a PDF map of the trails here.

The Association produces a trail map that highlights historical points in the area and provides additional information on the trails.  A copy can be obtained by contacting Discovery Routes.  Otherwise, a complete description of each trail is available on this website.

In 2011, the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) provided a Sustainable Trail Building Workshop on the Forgotten Trails.  See here what they had to say about the volunteers that participated.

Other trails in the South River area include those within Mikisew Provincial Park and bicycle routes that have been identified by race organizers in the community.
