Nice trail

Nice and short nature trip. Trail introduces you to the history of land and forest reclamation in the area. Very buggy!

Nice hard-packed chipped-stoned pathway. Great for cycling, walking, birding, nature walking etc. Nice viewing platform on the upper trail looking out over the marsh. Trail is completely washed out near the soccer field by the ski hill.

Decent urban trail along Junction Creek. Nice park at the trailhead near downtown. The north end of the trail is closed at Perreault Street so you are not able to access the nice views of the back marsh. Unfortunately there was a lot of garbage along the trail.

Easy, hard-packed and chipped-stone pathway. Some marsh views and a forested area. There was a tree felled by a beaver that was neat to see but the tree was blocking the pathway!

There are washed out sections thanks to a rainy summer however, this is still a great trail close to the urban centre and I highly recommend it.

Wonderful way to see the best part of Sudbury. Can be busy on nice days. There are numerous spots for beautiful pictures of Ramsey Lake. There is a gazebo for concerts, The Bell Park Amphitheatre, the main beach for swimming on the lake and Science North at the southern end. Some parts of the pathway are lockstone, some is hard-packed chipped stone and there are boardwalk type parts.

Short nature walk on a floating boardwalk through marshlands west of Science North. They have shortened the trail so that it doesn't go in as far anymore and now ends at the sportsfield. All the information plaques have also been removed. It's nice but not as great as when it first opened.

It's paved which is great for cycling, stollers, wheelchairs etc. Very few people for anyone looking for a quiet walk.

Stone-chipped, hard-packed trail for walking, biking, cycling that runs along the rail line and Nolin's Creek. There are several gazebo's and reat areas along the trail. At the trail's end there is a another unofficial trail heading west that's been there for over 40 years. It continues to meander through the bush alongside the rail line and the creek. Nice little nature walk - watch for kids on their bicycles! To reach the end of the extended trail you'll need to cross the creek by using the rail line crossover - not safe and most likely trespassing and illegal!

The trial is very overgrown and not well marked. We missed the turnoff from the main trail, then couldn't find our way across the swampy area, which had a deep stream winding through it. Will maybe try again in the fall.

Completed the Thibeault Trail loop with entrance from Ida St. Was a total of 3.4km with two nice lookout points. See pics for trail map.
