The Kinsmen Trail is a paved pathway winding along Chippewa Creek through the heart of North Bay. The trail makes use of streets along some sections, but frequent signage and pavement markings make navigation of the trail easy. The Chippewa Creek EcoPath follows 3.2 km of the trail between Thomson Park and the waterfront. The EcoPath is a local project that fosters stewardship of the creek through plantings to improve water quality and a watershed education program. Interpretive signage along the EcoPath provides information about the program.
