Service Disruption:
Trail closures and detours may occur on the McNutt Family Trails in the Laurentian Escarpment Conservation Area between May and November 2016 due to the construction of a new sanitary sewer from Janey Ave to Kenreta Dr by the City of North Bay.  Trail detours and closures will be signed and marked.  For a map and information see NBMCA Events.

A Trails Master Plan is currently being developed for the Laurentian Escarpment Conservation Area that takes into consideration the multi-user nature of these trails and the ecological significance of the escarpment.  For more information contact NBMCA.   

Directions: From Hwy 11, exit onto Algonquin Avenue northbound. Turn right onto Airport Road and follow the road up the hill. From Airport Road, turn right onto Tower Drive, and then take the immediate right turn onto Greenhill Avenue. Turn left onto Janey Avenue.
