Hunters Bay Trail - 3.8km

Level of Difficulty - Moderate

The Hunters Bay Trail is a walking, running and cycling trail. It begins at the Centre Street bridge near KWH Pipe and winds along the river, under the railway trestle, along the south side of Hunters Bay, through the Avery Beach Park and onwards to the Hwy #11 corridor. Enjoy the 450 foot section of the trail that floats on Hunters Bay. This is an ideal place to relax while fishing or swimming or just enjoying the trail. There are small nodes along the trail to stop and enjoy the scenery. Orchard Park is at the southern tip of the bay that looks down the full length of the bay.
