The Town of Thessalon operates The Stewart Highlands Trails located on the North Side of Highway 17 adjacent to the Town of Thessalon. The Trails entrance is located at Fire Marker 12706 off Highway 17, opposite McPhee Road. The ski trails are groomed for Classic Ski, hiking and snowshoeing. The Stewart Highland Trails would not be possible without the generosity of various property owners who have allowed access to their property for the use of this trail system.
The currently developing Thessalon Coastal Trail is a new trail system that provides a hidden view of Thessalon. The Thessalon Coastal Trail is set to be a mix of routes that are rugged terrain and sections that are accessible for those with mobility difficulties.
