With kilometres of roads and trail hugging the Georgian Bay coastline, the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail in Simcoe County is unbelievable!
From the trail hub community of Collingwood, to Wasaga Beach, the largest freshwater beach in the world, you’ll follow mostly quiet roads and trails, sometimes just beyond the sandy beaches themselves.
From the winding forested roads of Tiny Township, and the wooded bluffs of Awenda Provincial Park, to the history-steeped, and beautiful shoreline towns of Penetanguishene and Midland you’ll be in awe of the landscape and the incredible sun-dappled waters and bustling marinas nearby.
From the living 17th century museum of St. Marie-Among-the-Hurons to the Wye Marsh and the deepest freshwater port on earth in Port McNicoll, and the trail hub in Waubaushene…it’s world-class all the way in Tay Township.
And in Severn? From Port Severn to Severn Bridge you’ll find oodles of rural roads and trails, a signature loop into cottage country and the only marine railway of its kind in North America, not to mention an off-road gateway to the nearby City of Orillia.
Here you’ll find accommodations both rustic and luxurious, craft breweries and unique bakeries and coffee roasters, deep heritage and great adventures. Within Simcoe County there are connections to the Ganaraska Hiking Trail, The Great Trail, the Simcoe County Loop Trail and a number of cycle touring loops arranged by our partners in Cycle Simcoe. And if getting on the water is your trip, you’ll find the water is never very far away with rental and tour companies that can set you up right.
