Every year on the last Saturday of September the Land of the Nipigon Waterways and the Rotary Club of Nipigon host a Hike for Health along the Nipigon River Recreation Trail in order to raise monies for local and area needs.
During the rugged 10 km trek hikers enjoy spectacular views from three lookouts over Nipigon Bay on Lake Superior, and later relax on the leisurely portion of the trail beside the Nipigon River and its wetlands.
The day begins with a bus ride from the Nipigon trailhead to Red Rock, where hikers are greeted with a free continental breakfast. Water Stations are available along the hike, and a free lunch and entertainment greet the hikers at trail’s end in Nipigon.
Pledge sheets are available throughout the district well in advance of the hike and at final registration at the breakfast in Red Rock. Those raising over $200 or more in pledges, will receive a gift and a chance to win one of many major prizes. All hikers who enter with a small minimum pledge have a chance to win one of the many attendance prizes. This is a family affair; hikers from as young as three to over eighty years old have taken part in the hike.
We hope you will come and join the annual Hike for Health!
