Looking for a beautiful and peaceful way to reconnect with nature? The Greater City of Sudbury has an abundance of nature trails all across the city limits, many of which can be found at The Lake Laurentian Conservation Area.

The Lake Laurentian Conservation Area, located approximately 10 minutes from downtown Sudbury, consists of 2400 acres of protected green space. The area, owned by the Nickel District Conservation Authority, encompasses 20kms of trails that are perfect for hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Surrounded by urban development, this space was deemed a conservation area in the 1960’s in order to protect its beauty for generations to come.

One of the many trails within the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area offers a moderate challenge starting at Laurentian University, traveling through hills and wetlands, leading up to Moonlight Beach. The trail, which is part of Sudbury’s Rainbow Routes trails, consists of a gravel terrain with a small floating boardwalk crossing a beautiful pond.

Children will love to catch glimpses of the ducks and other wildlife along the trail. They’re also sure to enjoy discovering one of the many patches of blueberries that encircle this charming nature trail.

Be sure to allocate some time to enjoy the beach once you reach your destination. The soft sand, warm water and children’s play area are great way to enjoy the rest of your afternoon.
