Humphrey Barn and Nature Trails

In the spirit of trying to hike every trail around Parry Sound I can’t believe I missed these ones. There are 5 trails here (4 completed) that are track set for cross country skiing in the winter and are open all year round.

Rabbit Run:
This ~900 m loop is very quick and easy. It is for those just looking for a short walk to stretch the legs. Below is a sped up video of the entire trail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAVaDCOQF14

Bear Paw Path:
This 1.6 km loop trail is fantastic and easy to follow. It finishes off with the Rabbit Run trail meandering through the forest. Below is a sped up video of the entire trail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjNglG2BwmU

Running Deer Trail:
This is a fantastic 2.0 km loop. Just like the Beer Paw Path it meanders through the forest where deer can often be seen on a less popular day. Below is a sped up video of the entire trail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EAx9BBTcMQ

Foxtrot Trail:
This is a fantastic 2.4 km loop. It follows the running deer trail with an additional 400 m loop. Below is a sped up video of the entire trail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kE616a1n-wg

Moose Tracks:
Currently this is a 3.2 km trail that almost goes to Big Whitefish Lake. However the trail is still under construction and it ends at a pond then loops back to the start. It is still beautiful trail and I highly suggest it. Below is a sped up video of the entire trail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJfoYAxfF7I
