Hay River has a network of more than 20 kilometres of walking/hiking trails with scenic vistas of the river. Hay River’s trails are part of the Trans Canada Trail system, one of the world’s most ambitious trail systems.
Follow the interpretive signage throughout the trails that detail the local flora, fauna, culture, history and geography of the area.
The Hay River – Vale Island Pavilion is located on the east side of the Hay River Highway, opposite the entrance to the Hay River Airport.
The individuals listed on this pavilion played a crucial role in creating The Great Trail of Canada. The Trail now stretches over 27,000 kilometres, connecting the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans.
