Perfect time for Timmins to take a hike - Timmins Daily Press - Ontario, CA

"A lot of time and effort is spent keeping up Timmins' trail system. Now, residents of Timmins are being encouraged to experience the trails themselves.

After a successful first go last year, the Mattagami Region Conservation Authority (MRCA) and the Wintergreen Fund for Conservation are once again teaming up to bring Hiking Day to Timmins.

The event is part of Ontario Hiking Week, which takes place in southern Ontario later in the year. But with the North's unpredictable weather, organizers felt it was better held earlier in the fall."
