You’ll find tranquil Northern roads guiding you through the LaCloche foothills and dancing along shores of the serene Spanish River as the Trail winds through the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers. The Township is centred in Massey, a welcoming community that boasts a variety of gems including excellent local restaurants and eateries, a pair of motels, a quaint craft store and coffee shop, an extensive local museum, a grocer, one of the most generous scoops of ice cream around, and a road that is (quite literally) Seldom Seen. Visitors who want to revel in a night spent under the stars can set down at Chutes Provincial Park, where you’ll immerse yourself in a wealth of natural beauty, get up close to the stunning Chutes themselves, and wade in the waters near (but not too close) its feet.
Massey itself is nestled in the LaCloche range near the mouth of the Aux-Sables River, where it joins the Spanish River. Check out Mouth Park, at the end of Carl Albert Street in Massey, known as “The Mouth” as it is where the Sables River empties into the Spanish River. The Park features a beautiful natural sand beach, natural clay embankment slide, shoreline fishing and great picnic areas for the family
You’ll have the opportunity to cross the Spanish and venture further into the LaCloche Mountains, with this endearing community as an ideal base from which to set out on your travels.
