The John Rowswell Hub Trail

This 25 km./16.8 mi. paved trail circles the core of the city of Sault Ste. Marie and includes paved trail, some limited distances on streets, and the waterfront boardwalk. The Hub is easily accessed from Algoma’s Water Tower Inn & Suites. This ride is rated easy and will give you access to wetlands, parks, the St. Mary’s River and major city attractions. A well-defined map is available from our Trailhead Adventure Hosts, and you can access the Hub Trail right from the Inn.

Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site

Very easy terrain, but not paved, this trail system will give you 5 km of gentle but scenic and historic two-wheel enjoyment. You can drive to this heritage site or access it from the Hub Trail (see above). You will cross the Canadian Canal on the narrow lock gate walkway to access these trails, which weave in and out of wooded islets and wetlands bordering the St. Mary’s River. Plus, you can do more than ride your bike here; you can, for instance, tour historic buildings, antique machinery and picturesque grounds of the Sault Ste. Marie Canal. The Canadian Lock was a technological marvel in its day – the longest and most modern in the world in 1895. The trailhead is 4.8km./3mi. from the Inn.

Algoma Highlands/Stokely Creek Mountain Bike Trail System

This network of trails, maintained by a partnership between Stokely Creek Lodge and the Algoma Highlands Conservancy, hugs the rugged slopes of King Mountain and affords views over the spectacular coastline of eastern Lake Superior. This is a world class Nordic Ski area, so the more leisurely double trails are well-marked. There are also additional single-track trails requiring some serious climbing. The trailhead is 24.9 km/15.5 miles from the Inn. A detailed trail map is available.

Hiawatha Highlands

The Highlands is a beautiful 3,000-acre conservation area located within the city limits, offering a vast network of well-marked cross-country ski trails (45 kilometres/30 miles) that provide mountain biking for every level. Ride the well-signed double track or veer off on the more challenging single track spin-offs created by local riders. You’ll ride through towering white pines and sandy inclines, punctuated with still waterways and cascading waterfalls. The Trailhead begins just 10 km/6.2 mi. from Algoma’s Water Tower Inn & Suites, so you can drive it or ride it. There is a detailed trail map for the double-track system.
