Silver Falls Trail – 10 km, difficult
Silver Falls is one of the classic hiking trails in the Thunder Bay area and is maintained by the Thunder Bay Hiking Association. The trails follows the Kaministiquia river to a gorge of a set of small falls called Silver Falls where you can take in the view of the larger picturesque Dog Falls. The trail continues to the top of the Dog Falls and up to a lookout over the river valley. The trail beyond the falls goes into the forest which is less worn and leads to a rocky area some people call the “Hoover Dam”. Most people use this trail as a linear trail or park a second car at the lookout if you only want to hike the trail one way. Remember that the water level in the Kaministiquia River is controlled by dams and water levels can change fast without warning. If you see water levels changing move quickly to high ground.


Please contact the park directly for details.


A nice sandy beach is located close to the campground on Dog Lake.
