Also known as the Mattagami River Trail, the Bridge to Bridge Trail runs along both banks of the Mattagami between Algonquin Boulevard to the south and Lafleur Drive to the north. It is integrated into the Waterfront Trail at the Mattagami boat launch and the Scout Rock Trial through Denise Park.
The Waterfront Trail runs along an abandoned railway track bed from the Mattagami River through residential areas to the downtown business core.

This trail circles around Gillies Lake and features a playground and supervised beach area for swimming.
Running along Porcupine Lake, this trail can be accessed at any point around the lake. The White Water Front Beach has an unsupervised beach area for swimming and a playground.
