Explore Autumn with Hiking and Biking Trails Next to You

Looking to soak up all the autumn vibes while getting a little exercise? Here at Next Apartment, we love to take a walk or bike through the many nature trails surrounding our residential rentals

New to the area? We'll help you find the best trail for your needs.

Sault Ste. Marie has several wonderful parks filled with nature trails to explore. Bellevue Park, a short drive from our Pine Allard Properties, is beautiful this time of year. Walk, jog, or cycle through the many trails or let the children play at the playground. If you are up for the drive, Kinsmen Park, next to Hiawatha Highlands Conservation Area, has several branching nature trails, dense forests, and the beautiful Crystal Falls. In just a 15 minute drive from our Willow Properties, you will find ample parking and amazing autumn views. 

Fort Creek Conservation Area, in Sault Ste. Marie, is a 191-acre park with several winding nature trails. The paved John Roswswell Hub Trail snakes all around the city with a total of 25km to explore. There is an access point a short bike ride from our Willow Properties. Do not get lost; use these trail maps as a guide through the sections of the Hub Trail. 

Sheppard's Bush in Aurora has over 65 acres of green space to enjoy which includes 3km of nature trails. During autumn, flood your senses with the beautiful changing leaves clinging to the branches and enjoy their crunch underfoot as you walk along the path. There's also a fitness trail specifically designed for biking, running, or jogging. Although the fitness stations are currently unavailable, this path still offers a significant workout. Visitors may use the parking lot, located a short drive from our Millwell Properties, Monday to Friday for up to 3 hours between 7am and 7pm.

The Aurora Arbortum shines during autumn as its paths are surrounded by various species of trees, some native to the area and many that are not. When the season changes, the 100+ acres of land lights up with vibrant colours of the leaves and blooming flowers. 

Take time to enjoy the seasonal activities and beautiful sights autumn has to offer.
