Thessalon

Thessalon invites you to come and discover Thessalon and its surrounding communities. A small town with a big sense of community, beautiful beaches, small-town shops and outdoor adventures all seasons of the year. The Town of Thessalon is located off Highway 17, only 80 km east of Sault Ste. Marie. The scenic Thessalon River runs through the Town leading to the river mouth into Lake Huron making Thessalon a destination for water sports. Paddle, kayak or fish your way up the river under the iconic Thessalon Red Bridge that was originally built in the 1880s. Thessalon is a perfect spot to hike, cycle and bird watch. In the winter, you can enjoy snowshoeing and cross-country skiing on town-operated trail systems. Other activities include curling, hockey, ice skating, ice fishing and snowmachining which will have you embracing the winter months in Thessalon.

The Municipality of the Town of Thessalon operates a full-service Marina, a fitness center, a full-service campground, an arena, sandy beaches, and pickleball courts, all while providing community activities for all ages. Thessalon encourages its residents, visitors and tourists to shop, love and explore local. Visit our Community Directory: https://thessalon.ca/businesses/

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.  Construction of an accessible walkway was completed in spring 2023 and an accessible lookout to view the freighters entering Smelter Bay.
