Huron Shores

Gateway to the Mississagi River Valley: Little Rapids, Sowerby, Dayton, Iron Bridge, Dean Lake and other historical hamlets.

Huron Shores offers the outdoor enthusiast a myriad of choices: snowmobiling, golfing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, biking, horseback riding, boating, hunting and fishing offer year-round recreation. Public boat launches are available at several municipally maintained parks. Snowmobilers have access to over 600 km (372 mi) of trails with links to Provincial, National and International networks. Cross country skiers have approximately 5 km of new trail. Visit the vast Kirkwood Forest with its stands of red pine or hike along the Voyageur Trail. The Municipality is also the entrance to the Mississagi Delta Provincial Nature Reserve, marking the mouth of the largest river flowing into Lake Huron. In the autumn, the Deer Trail Touring Route provides a spectacular scenic drive.

During the summer, learn about Huron Shores’ proud pioneer and agricultural heritage at the Heritage Park Museum in Little Rapids and the Iron Bridge Historical Museum. Annual events include: the Thessalon Township Heritage Association’s Country Fair on the Civic Holiday Monday in August; and the Iron Bridge Agricultural Fall Fair held the Saturday of Labour Day weekend. On Saturdays, the Iron Bridge Museum hosts the weekly Farmers’ Market from June to September.

The Municipality also boasts 2 of the 3 12-Sided Barns that are known to exist in Canada. The Cordukes/Weber 12-Sided Barn, (located in Sowerby originally built in 1919) was relocated and restored for use as a seasonal public recreation facility. The other 12-sided barn (built 1928), is the Round Barn located in Maple Ridge.
