The north section of the trail off Bethel Lake Court follows the north shore of Bethel Lake, and floating boardwalks are provided through the marshy areas. This is a great place to watch for birds. The trail gives a breathtaking view of Greater Sudbury in the latter portions of the trail, and gives you the opportunity to view the Creighton Fault. The Creighton Fault is an ancient geological fault line that extends as far as Sault Ste. Marie. Scientists estimate the fault has been inactive for over one billion years.
The trail also provides access to the Laurentian University trail network. For more information, please contact Laurentian University at 675-1151.
The Bethel Lake Trail is part of the Trans Canada Trail.
