The Best Snowmobiling Paths in Sudbury

The Best Snowmobiling Paths in Sudbury

It’s time for an adventure! A snowmobiling adventure! 

For over 30 years, the Greater Sudbury region has been home to some amazing snowmobiling trails. In fact, the organized trail system in Sudbury has expanded over the years to include more than 1,000 kms of trails.

Here are 3 of the best trails in Sudbury for you to try out this winter:

Chiniguchi Wolf Loop (223 km)

This loop is one of the most exciting in Sudbury. It travels along the Wolf Lake Forest Reserve, one of Ontario’s largest old growth forests with colossal red pines that are over 200 years old. You should check out this route if you love fast paced snowmobiling and scenic lookouts! Don’t forget to stop for something to eat at Rocky’s, which is on the shores of Lake Wanapitei.

Cartier Moose Loop (253 km)

This loop is a bit more rugged than other snowmobiling loops in Sudbury. If you visit this loop, you’ll see the round rocks of the Laurentian Highlands and Boreal Forest and will definitely see plenty of wildlife. If you choose this path, definitely stop by the Windy lake Motel & Restaurant for a quick bite!

Rainbow Elk Loop (225 km)

There are so many things to see on this incredible snowmobiling loop. If you take this loop, you’ll see old rail lines, old logging roads, winding bush trails, fields and lakes! There’s always something to look at. If you’re looking for a place to stop after overlooking Killarney park and Lake Huron, stop by Killarney Bay Inn!

Sudbury is the best place to hit up for a wonderful snowmobiling adventure. If you’re ready to hit the open loop, check out these paths today! For more information about things to do in Sudbury, check out Quality Inn Sudbury’s blog!

Step By Step Guide To Ice Fishing in Sudbury

Ice Fishing in Sudbury

Tired of doing the same winter activities every year? Ready to move on from snowman-building, ice-skating, and skiing to something more extreme? Well, ice fishing in Sudbury is just the thing for you!

Ice fishing is a very Canadian experience. Most people consider it an activity that should be experienced at least once in every Canadian’s lifetime. Thankfully, if you can handle the cold, it’s pretty easy to do. All you need is a rod, bait, an auger, and a shelter for the wind!

If you’re looking to do some quality ice fishing in Sudbury, here’s a step by step guide for you:

Where To Go

Windy Lake Provincial Park is considered the best place for ice fishing in Sudbury. It is located 40 minutes northwest of Sudbury! This is an ideal place for ice fishing because it is home to adorable rustic cabins and because you can rent all the equipment you need right on site (on a first come, first serve basis)!

Other Things You’ll Need

To make the most of your ice fishing experience, here’s what we recommend:

– Bring water and snacks. Nobody wants to be thirsty or hungry when ice fishing!

– Sure, you’ll be out during the day, but it might be easier to set up with some additional light!

– Never underestimate the cold!

– Hot water or tea! Again: never underestimate the cold!

– Your fishing licenses. You can be fined without it!

– Lots of patience! Ice fishing can take a lot of time!

The season is almost here! Get ready to go ice fishing!

Don’t delay your magnificent ice fishing trip. Plan your ice fishing weekend in Sudbury with a stay at Quality Inn Sudbury. There’s nothing better than a warm and comfortable accommodation after a long day of ice fishing. Book a room by calling us at Quality Inn Sudbury today: 705-675-1273.

Summer is the season for exploring and there’s no better place to explore than Sudbury! Sudbury is home to over 300 lakes for people to enjoy throughout the various seasons, and they’re all ready for you! Here are 4 lakes that we recommend you enjoy this summer in Sudbury. 

Lake Wanapitei

Lake Wanapitei is the largest lake in the world. It was classified as such in 2001 when Greater Sudbury became an official city. If you visit this lake and the surrounding provincial park, you can enjoy swimming, fishing and views of incredible wildlife roaming the grounds! 

Ramsey Lake

Before Lake Wanapitei was classified as the largest lake, Ramsey Lake had the title. Regardless of the lack of this status now, this lake is still a Sudbury favourite. It is very easily accessible, and visitors can enjoy views of the Jim Gordon Boardwalk and Laurentian University.

Fairbank Lake

Fairbank Lake is a beautiful serene lake that makes a great setting for family activities. Here you will find campsites equipped with comfort zones such as hot showers, flushing toilets, laundromats and more! It is a great place to relax for the weekend and swim with your favourite floatie! 

Windy Lake Provincial Park

Like Fairbank Lake, Windy Lake is a great place to take the family! This lake features a sandy beach and great water for swimming and water sports! It is also a very clear lake, so you’ll be able to see your feet all the way through the water!

These are just a few of our favourite lakes to visit in Sudbury. What are some of your favourites?

If you’re visiting Sudbury to splash around at any of these lakes, make Quality Inn Sudbury your accommodation for the night. Our comfortable and clean hotel is ready to serve you. Call us today at 705-675-1273 to book a room today.

hiking trip

Visiting Sudbury but don’t know what to do during your stay? Well, Sudbury is home to tons of beautiful hiking trails to take advantage of! Get in a workout and some beautiful views by heading out to these 5 fantastic hiking trails.

Mallard’s Landing Trail

This hiking trail is along the Southern parts of Sudbury, around where Regent meets Algonquin. It is a fairly short trail, but it features a beautiful boardwalk that overlooks a pond. If you’re bringing children, this trail even has a playground that they will love!

Robinson Trail

This particular trail is a local Sudbury favourite. It is a kilometer-long trail that runs along Robinson Lake (which is where the name is from). Along this trail you will also find a playground and beautiful, marshier scenery.

Spruce Street Trails

This trail is a little less well-known as it runs in the small area of wilderness around Big Nickel Mine Drive, Elm Street and Spruce Street. For locals of the area, this trail is an absolute favourite, though! Bring a dog with you to enjoy the pine-needle littered floors, well-cleared paths and apocalyptic rock pits!

Minnow Lake Trail

The east side of Sudbury is home to Minnow Lake trail, which is right next to Minnow Lake. This trail is unique as it is a great spot to pick blueberries as you hike and enjoy them in a beautiful gazebo that overlooks the small lake!

Percy Park Path

This trail is fun both because it is beautiful and because of the name (say “Percy Park Path 3x fast, we dare you). It is a fairly short trail that will offer you a quick getaway and another beautiful and colourful playground for any children travellers! 

The best thing to do after a long hike is to come back to a relaxing and extra-comfortable hotel room. Quality Inn Sudbury can be just that place for you! Call us today at 705-675-1273 to book a room today!
