Astride both the shores of Georgian Bay and Lake Couchiching are the many communities of Severn Township. Here the Trail follows off-road paths and quiet paved roads through Severn’s pristine countryside of green hills, fields and woods, touching the series of lakes and rivers that form the final leg of the Trent-Severn Waterway. You’ll love the fresh air
There are three major communities along the Trail in Severn. Central to the route is Coldwater. With its warm riverside vibe and plenty of amenities Coldwater makes for a great place for a lunch, a rest or refuel. In the east there is Severn Bridge, where you’ll find Trent-Severn Waterway Lock 42, a scenic respite at any time of the year. Located just north of Waubaushene along the Big Chute Loop section of the Trail, you’ll also find the stunning lakeside community of Port Severn where you’ll find the final lock of the Trent-Severn, a selection of eateries, lakeside accommodations, and picturesque parks and marinas.
There are many opportunities to explore Severn on the Trail. Coldwater serves as the Trail hub for the 66km Big Chute Loop from Coldwater and Waubaushene to Honey Harbour, Six Mile Lake Provincial Park, and the Big Chute Marine Railway. A spur along the Uhthoff Trail section of the route connects all the way to Orillia and Lake Couchiching, and Cycle Simcoe offers the Carlyon Loop that uses the Trail as a spine.
