SORRY NETFLIX, but your streaming hours might go down after people read this. Maybe not, but one of the things I love about Sudbury is being able to submerse yourself in nature within the city limits. We are lucky to have such an abundance of undeveloped areas where one can go and get away from the city lights and get a breath of fresh natural air. Sudbury is full of walking trails that take you into the heart of the woods. Nothing beats going for a walk or hiking Sudbury through the forest with a special someone (or favorite pet), on a nice sunny day, seeing the light shine through the trees. Everyone knows walks are the best first dates. You’re welcome, I’m like a cupid right now.
The area that I am most familiar with and highly recommend are the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area trails. Located in the Lake Laurentian conservation area, 2400 acres of protected green space. The Laurentian trails offer over 20 km of walking paths including a section of the Trans Canada Trail. There is also a connection between these trails and the Nordic ski trails on the Laurentian University campus. During the summer I like to bike the trails once a week if I have the time. You need to walk your bike for some sections, but it’s worth it for the downhill sections; the thrill is real. Some of the trails are narrow and steep and are quite the challenge. There are some unique sections with bridges, trails alongside the lake and look outs with beautiful scenic views. It’s not only humans who love these trails. My little guy, poncho/pug, Harvey, could run up and down these trails all day long.
Luckily, I live right near the conservation area and the Trans Canada trail cuts through my back yard. So….I’m there, like, every day. BUT, for those who don’t live as close to me, don’t worry. Without traffic, it’s only a 10-minute drive from down town Sudbury.
Well, I took a few pictures of some of my adventures. You can see for yourself. Bring your friends. Go for a night walk. Take a day and do the 10 km hike. Get off your butt, you won’t regret it!
If you have any questions let me know!
