Each year, we take the tour itineraries we develop for the Great Waterfront Trail Adventure and post them here as trip-planning resources. Now you can experience Great Waterfront Trail Adventures on your own self-supported tour. Maps and itineraries are free to print and download.

Make sure to check our closures and notices page in advance of your trip.

If you are considering a self-guided trip in the Bruce Peninsula, Grey or Simcoe Counties, the Muskokas or the Parry Sound Region but may want some extra support, our partner Humdinger Tours operates several smaller scale tours in the area including many sections of the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail.  They offer a comprehensive “build your own” option from full gear and luggage transports and meals to a simple shuttle service as well. Visit their website for more details. This is a great way to both enjoy the countryside and to dip your toes into what the self-guided experience might be like before taking the plunge!

Ontario By Bike offers a wide range of smaller-scale tours throughout the year and throughout Ontario, including tours along sections of the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail. They also curate a number of itineraries you can try on your own and coordinate a network of bicycle-friendly businesses.
