The Forest Community Trail is a short hike in the Hazelwood Lake Conservation Area that includes interpretive signs educating the hiker on forestry in the area.
Roundtrip: 2.5 km
Location: Thunder Bay, ON
The Forest Community Trail informs the hiker through several funny signs along the way like “7 Job Opportunities” that once matched up to an interpretive guide educating hikers on forestry in the area.
Hazelwood Lake Conservation Area is located 14 km north on Hazelwood Drive. Follow Dawson Road (Highway 102) past County Fair Plaza to Hazelwood Drive. Turn right on Hazelwood Drive and follow this road until it ends at the Hazelwood Lake Conservation Area. The parking area is clearly marked and there is a $2 per car user fee that can be deposited on the honour system at the trailhead.
The Forest Community Trail can be found near the lakeside of the main building. The trail is open year-round and makes a fun snowshoe to do with kids in the winter.
