Welcome to the Township of Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls. We are located along the eastern shores of Lake of the Woods, nestled amongst towering trees and picturesque wildlife. Lake of the Woods is one of the world’s largest inland, freshwater lakes with over 14,000 islands and 65,000 miles of shoreline. As a small municipality, we pride ourselves on our community spirit. Spend your summers on the lake and in the sun or cozy up to a fire in the winter and realize why this area is one of Canada’s best kept secrets.

We have three municipal hiking trail systems. The Aspen Trail and Red Pine Trail are both suitable for nodic skiing in winter A description of all our trails follows:

The Aspen Trail, at Sioux Narrows, is an excellent example of the boreal forest. The trails encompass a large beaver pond, as well as a spectacular lookout high above Regina Bay, Lake of the Woods. This trail is family friendly, but would caution taking small children as there are some steep uphill grades.

The Red Pine Trail, at Nestor Falls, is family friendly and in general, very level with some short uphill grades. The trail is suitable for all skill levels.

The Boreal Trail, at Nestor Falls, is a family friendly trail but would caution taking small children as it includes some very rocky terrain, as well as some steep uphill grades. The trail circles a large beaver pond and has several areas for viewing this pond. The trail is mostly on high granite ridges of jack pine forest, but travels through areas of black and white spruce, poplar, birch and ash. Wildlife is abundant. Look for whitetail deer, red fox, beaver and a broad variety of bird life.
