Nipawin is a hub for snowmobilers, with over 300 kilometres of local trails and access to many more in the surrounding communities. The Twin Lakes Trail Blazers maintain the trails surrounding this outdoorsy Saskatchewan town. Nipawin is close to the Trans-Canadian Snowmobile Trail, which is North America’s first coast-to-coast recreational trail. Nipawin also offers snowmobile routes to nearby Greenwater, Hudson Bay, Candle Lake and Little Bear.
