Lambton Shores Nature Trails is proud to announce that we will be hosting a FREE movie at the Kineto Theatre in Forest @ 1 pm (doors open at 12:30) on March 11, 2017.  Everyone welcome!  Join us for this 'Life Changing' film!

This 90 minute feature film captures the challenge, struggle and ultimate triumph of a journey on the Pacific Crest Trail on foot.  Travelling more than 2500 miles from Mexico to Canada, two best friends chronicle their adventure through America's backcountry.  

EXCLUSIVE!  We are privileged to present the World Premiere trailer of Hayduke, creating America's next National Scenic Trail in Utah, from producer Andy Laub.
