Timmins Hiking Day
The Mattagami Region Conservation Authority and the Wintergreen Fund for Conservation invite residents and visitors to come out to the Hersey Lake Conservation Area to help celebrate Timmins Hiking Days and to enjoy the great outdoors. The event is held twice a year, once in the fall around the beginning of October and again in the winter, towards the end of February. The hike is designed to highlight our community trail system and the many health benefits associated with walking and cycling. Volunteers will be on hand to lead several guided hikes of differing lengths while describing some of the unique plants and animals we have here in Northern Ontario. Various outdoor groups including Timmins Search and Rescue, the Timmins Naturalists and the Ministry of Natural Resources will also treat hikers to special presentations. Trail maps and brochures will be available and refreshments will be served.
