Voyageur Hiking Trail Guidebook - Edition 4.1

The Voyageur Trail Association (VTA) vision is to work with volunteers and partner organizations to build a continuous wilderness-style hiking trail from Sudbury through Sault Ste. Marie to Thunder Bay, a distance of some 1,100 km paralleling the rugged Northern Ontario shores of Lake Huron and Lake Superior.

VTA Trail Guide (2014)

The 2014 edition of the guidebook is now available.

With 42 Full-Colour 1:50,000 Maps and written trail descriptions for over 600 km of trails from Nipigon to Spanish (not continuous), contained in 6-ring binder. Includes an overview map of the entire trail system, table of contents, a map legend, details on how to make the most of your Voyageur Trail experience, and index tabs. The guidebook measures approx. 7.5"x5"; maps are bi-folded and are 11" long when unfolded. The guidebook is designed so that individual map pages can be removed from the binder and carried in a Ziploc-type bag on an outing. Datum: NAD 83.

Members of the VTA may choose to pick the book up themselves to save shipping costs.

You can also buy the Trail Guide at a number of stores (list), both along the trail and in some other places throughout Ontario.
