The Inco Superstack. Dynamic Earth. Science North. The Big Nickel. All these locations and more are icons that represent the dynamism and ingenuity of the City of Greater Sudbury. The City has a deep rooted history in the mining industry that, while still active, they have deepened and expanded on to embrace science and education. Sudbury is a major junction point for travellers to and from Southern Ontario, is the east anchor of the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, Lake Huron North Channel route, the west anchor of the Voyageur Cycle Route and is an excellent set-off point for hikers, cyclists, and paddlers alike. The City has a wide range of services, and accommodations from campgrounds to major hotels, a variety restauraunts, cycle shops and other outdoor outfitters for any traveller to take advantage of. Transit options to the City include flight, train and coach.
Those looking for a day hike or a family friendly outing can enjoy over 50km of trails in Sudbury’s Rainbow Routes network, that will take you through a wide variety of terrain and ecological watersheds. The Trail in Sudbury is nearly as varied, from the scenic boardwalk and waterfront path near Bell Park, with its Blue Flag beach, and, once outside the city proper, rugged northern roads, trails and a pleasantly winding rural roadway where those that want to cycle can really open up.
