With the snow starting to melt, its time to put away the skis, snowmobiles and snowshoes and break out the bicycles and running shoes! Here are a couple trails to tackle this spring and summer to soak in the beauty of Grey Bruce

Trails in MacGregor Point Provincial Park

There are 6 trails in MacGregor Point totaling about 20 km with ones as long as 6 km to as short as 0.8km. There is a trail for everyone including avid cyclists, hikers or for those that just want to enjoy the scenery. There is shoreline access to Lake Huron or you could enjoy look out for waterfowl along the Tower Trail. For more information on all the trails, click here.

Georgian Trail

This whopping 34km trail stretches from Meaford to Collingwood but there are 30 access points along the way to make your hike or cycling trip the perfect length just for you. It runs along highway 26 and the shore of Georgian Bay with gorgeous stops along the way.

The Bruce Trail is a massive 890 km trail stretching across Southern Ontario but there are a number of different trails you can hit along the Bruce Peninsula. Lots of information can be found here, and you can become a member! If you are a fan of sketching the local scenery, they even have a Sketch and Hike on the Hope Bay trail being held on May 1st.

Tom Thomson Trail

The beautiful Tom Thomson Trail stretches from Owen Sound to Meaford and is only open during the Spring, Summer and Fall so take advantage of the gorgeous scenery while you have the chance! The trail, which only opened in 2008, stretches just over 40 km with multiple access points over a variety of terrains. It starts at just north of the Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound and ends in Fred Raper Park in Meaford with Trailhead Kiosks located on both ends.
