The City of North Bay officially opened the new Black Forest Trails on Highway 11 North on May 14 2010. The new 1.5 km hiking and walking loop takes visitors through beautiful red and white pine forest stands. Working with the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority, the City created pedestal interpretive signs that will be scattered along the trails to provide information on the forest’s history, logging, reforestation, and the wildlife found throughout the park.
The goal is that this park and the information contained on these signs will serve as a living classroom for families, groups and schools. The interpretive trail system will provide an opportunity to be active as they walk the trails and learn more about the forest environment at the same time.

We would also direct you to read our DISCLAIMER and our TRAIL USERS CODE.
