Discovery Routes Trails Organization was established in 1992. As a not-for-profit organization as well as a registered charity, Discovery Routes’ main responsibilities are to create, maintain, and promote multi-seasonal trails in northeastern Ontario. Discovery Routes is a volunteer partnership of community leaders, economic developers, environmental stewards and locally-based action groups. We promote the use of trails in support of better health, tourism, strong communities, and environmental appreciation and protection. One of Discovery Routes’ main goals is to provide the coordination for community based partnerships to actively promote the use of local trails for recreation, and to encourage healthy lifestyles. Discovery Routes’ region includes the area from Mattawa to West Nipissing, and from Magnetawan north to Marten River. Check out a Google Map of our trails
