Winding your way along the sun-touched southern heart of Georgian Bay, you’re inevitably drawn to Wasaga Beach. The town has a deep and varied history, including ties to lumber and even naval before becoming the thriving community it is today. But what was challenging for ships and agriculture has become a vital heart of the community and a draw for travellers all across Ontario: its kilometers-long soft sand beach, the longest freshwater beach in the world.
Here you’ll find the Trail winding along quiet residential roads near the water while passing through Wasaga Beach Provincial Park, following shaded paths just beyond the shifting sheaves of tempting white sand and the stunning panoramic views of the Niagara Escarpment. Wasaga Beach has numerous local shops, restaurants and lodging choices to make your stay a longer one, most located along Mosely Street and Main Street, on or near the Trail.
With 8 beach areas, including 3 blue flag beaches (beach areas 1, 2 and 5), swimming and watersports, over 50 km of hiking trails including connections to the Ganaraska Hiking Trail, local cycling routes like the Wasaga Dunes Loop, nearby connections to the Simcoe County Loop Trail and historic sites like Nancy Island, there is a lot to discover and keep you returning to Wasaga Beach.
