A big step forward for Kinghorn Rail Corridor on Superior’s north shore

February 21, 2011 | 0 comments

Trans Canada Trail Ontario (TCTO) recently announced that the development of a multi-use recreational trail on the abandoned rail line between Nipigon and Thunder Bay will be the subject of a feasibility study carried out by Owen Sound firm MacLeod Farley & Associates. The study will assess the proposed 111-km project which could link Thunder Bay, Shuniah, Dorion, Red Rock and Nipigon along a trail for use by hikers, cyclists and snowmobilers.

TCTO Board Director Cameron Clark said, “We are very pleased to be funding partners for this project, which will provide essential information to our partners, trail builders, and communities in the vicinity of the proposed trail. We are committed to connecting the Trans Canada Trail from coast to coast to coast by 2017 and we are very hopeful that the Kinghorn will become part of that vision.”

Twelve rail bridges are located along the route, including the magnificent Pass Lake Trestle, shown above.
