A favourite of Thunder Bay locals, Cascades Conservation Area is the perfect place for hikers of all skill level. The paved trail offers a wheel-chair friendly, accessible route through the surrounding trees, with more challenging trails branching off along the way. This hotspot for dog walkers and joggers also offers users the opportunity to explore the rushing rapids of the Current River. The interpretive pavilion near the parking lot is a great spot for a picnic while learning about the geological, hydrological, and botanical features of the area.
