Trail commemorates 50 years of Rotary Volunteer Service to the Parry Sound community and it is also

About the Fitness Trail
It has become a well-known and popular attraction in
Parry Sound. Winding along the Eastern Shoreline
of Georgian Bay at Parry Sound, the Rotary Algonquin
Regiment Fitness Trail takes you on a 5km excursion
filled with scenery, attractions and fun and relaxation.
The pathways are very well maintained providing for ease
in walking, jogging, running or biking. In winter
the trail is groomed for snowmobile pleasure.
Snowmobiles are the only motorized vehicles permitted on
the trail (with the exception of electric scooters,
The trail runs from the Salt Docks off Marion Avenue,
down to Champagne Street in what is known as the old
Parry Harbour. Public boat launching is permitted
both at the Salt Docks and at Parry Harbour.
In addition to the sites, sounds and attractions along
the shoreline, the trail also features five fitness,
picnic tables and benches.
The trail passes by the Waubuno Park Town Beach and the
Old Town Beach, the Canadian Coast Guard, the Charles W.
Stockey Centre and Bobby Orr Hall of Fame and passes
along the Town Dock area where the 30,000 Island Queen
Cruise Boat is stationed. The trail also takes you
by the modern Tony Agnello Water Treatment Plant with a
rooftop lookout station that provides a great view of
the Big Sound.
There are memorial stations and information plaques
along the way too.
Heading north, past the Salt Dock Wharf, the trail
actually continues as it turns into a 2.5 rugged hiking
trail. It's officially known as the North Shore
Rugged Hiking Trail and is frequented by avid hikers.
Heading south past Parry Harbour, the trail continues.
The trail is fairly flat. It gradually narrows and
takes you very close to another salt dock location.
In addition to the flat and wide trails, the Algonquin
Regiment Fitness Trail is well lit. Light
standards are placed close to each other along the
trail. Whether you are out for a mid-day stroll or
late-evening jog, you will feel comfortable and safe
along the way.
When visiting Parry Sound don't miss taking in the
Fitness Trail. Either on the trail or close by,
the number and variety of attractions will allow you and
your family to make a great day on your journey along
