Trans Canada Trail

Trans Canada Trail Logo

The Trans Canada Trail (TCT) is a multi-use trail that links all of Canada’s provinces and territories together. As the longest trail network in the world, the Trans Canada Trail mission is to connect Canadians and visitors to nature and to one another, from coast to coast to coast, through accessible and inclusive outdoor activities. Building and maintaining the Trans Canada Trail is the responsibility of the communities and regions through which it passes.

Trans Canada Trail in Northeastern Ontario

Discovery Routes is proud to be facilitating the development of the Trans Canada Trail across Northeastern Ontario from Seguin Falls to Commanda, Callander to North Bay, Sturgeon Falls to Noelville and St. Charles to Hagar.  That’s over 340km of the Trans Canada Trail!!  Working together with partners across the region including municipalities, local trail advocacy groups and volunteers, and the provincial representatives for the Trans Canada Trail, and the Trans Canada Trail Foundation since 1992, the Trans Canada Trail is now fully connected!

Seguin Falls to Magnetawan

The Old Nipissing Ghost Road from Seguin Falls to Commanda was one of the first segments of the Trans Canada Trail to be registered in Ontario.  A trail pavilion recognizing donors is located in the Village of Magnetawan.  Detailed information for trail users can be found on our Old Nipissing Ghost  Trail information page.

Nipissing Township

Through Nipissing Township, the Trans Canada Trail follows country backroads great for gravel cycling. Known locally as the Pat Haufe Way, the TCT also loops into the JP Webster Nature Preserve, the site of a wilderness area managed by the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority.


Callander’s Trans Canada Trail is a rugged 9.8km wilderness trail in the southwest corner of the Municipality of Callander connecting to the Pat Hauffe Way put of Nipissing Township.  The project was a major undertaking as it involved a variety of terrain in a remote, rural setting.  It took more than 5 years to plan, develop and build the Trail. Most of the trail is maintained for snowmobile use by the South Shore/Restoule Snowmobile Club.

North Bay

The Kate Pace Way in North Bay forms part of the Trans Canada Trail adding a 12 km paved pathway to the national system.  A trail pavilion recognizing past donors to TCT is located on North Bay’s waterfront.

West Nipissing – Sudbury East

From the northwest end of Memorial Drive in North Bay through West Nipissing and spanning over 200km west to the Bethel Lake Trail in Sudbury, this section of the Trans Canada Trail follows the Véloroute Voyageur Cycling Route passing through picturesque villages, active farms, Mashkinonje Provincial Park, and across the Sturgeon and Wahnapitae waterways.

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.
