Hunter's Bay Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

The Hunter's Bay Trail is a walking, running, cycling trail about 3.8 kilometres in length. It is part of the 52 kilometres of Trans Canada Trail that runs through Huntsville.

The trail starts at the Centre Street Bridge beside KWH Pipe and runs along beside the river, under the railway trestle, along the east side of Hunter's Bay, through Avery Beach Park, and onwards to the Highway 11 corridor. There is a 137 metre (450 ft) section of the trail that floats on Hunters Bay. The floating part of the trail is an ideal place to swim or fish from, or to tie up a boat and walk along the trail. There are small pull-offs along the trail to stop and enjoy the scenery including Orchard Park at the southern tip of the bay, which looks down the full length of the bay. The trail is easy to moderate in level of difficulty. Parking is also available at Avery Beach Park, on the lake side of Yonge Street. The park also has a swimming area, volleyball sand court, dock, and boat launch ramp. (copied from Town of Huntsville Web site)

This is a grealt little trail and is well maintained. Its great for a beginner or intermediate rider. Watch out for hikers. There is lots to check out along the trail, and the floating part of the trail is pretty cool.

Recommended Route:
Park at the KWH Pipe end of the trail on Center St. and from there Algonquin Outfitters is really close and has a lot of different bike gear, and across the street is Muskoka Bicycle Pro Shop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
I usually head up to the Lookout via the Back trail from Camp Kitchen, a very steep climb, but very rewarding once you get up there. Just make sure your brakes are working for the trip down. Then up in behind the McDonalds there are some fun little trails to play on for a while. Between trail riding and shopping in Historic Downtown Huntsville, its a great way to waste a day!
