Trowbridge Falls is a popular walking/hiking area at the north end of Thunder Bay, known for its waterfalls & views. It’s a spot for a fairly easy, mainly wooded trail run on paths with decent footing. We’ve mapped a 5.5 km loop, but there are good options for shorter & longer. There are kiosks with maps.
Start at the parking lot at Kinsmen Park. Cross the bridge and run the outer perimeter trail, making sure to follow the map that passes the Lookout at Trowbridge. The paths pass through mixed boreal forest with some beautiful white pines. There are some arched bridges and natural rocky steps.
Shorter Option: There’s an inner perimeter trail, which saves ~1 km.
Longer Option: Take the trail south to Centennial Park. This adds ~2 km out and back. The trail crosses under the Trans Canada Highway. For even longer, can extend south of Centennial Park to Boulevard Lake.
