Bordering the sparkling waters of Georgian Bay, Grey is an ideal warm weather playground! Its spectacular outdoor setting, art galleries, theatres and attractions simply make Grey the perfect escape. Home to Ontario’s most scenic hiking routes on the Bruce Trail, Grey’s network of trails pass through conservation lands, communities, natural forests, and – bonus – include a Waterfall Tour, too.
Add a bit of a challenge to your hike by exploring the caves spread throughout the area or feed your adventurous spirit by rock climbing. Check out area outfitters for tours, equipment and climbing locations.
Cycling is big here and Grey’s back roads are perfect
cycling routes, travelling through scenic apple orchards, rolling fields and wooded lands. The fishing is pretty fine, with Georgian Bay, inland lakes and local rivers home to salmon, trout and other species. All this water makes great conditions for all types of watersports - canoeing, kayaking, SUP, wind surfing, sailing and boating. Those who like to golf can choose from a variety of courses.
History just comes naturally in Grey! At Craigleith Provincial Park, millions of years of history are locked into the flat shale shoreline in the invertebrate fossils imbedded in the rock. Grey Roots Museum & Archives brings history to life with its exhibits and its on-site pioneer village, Moreston, featuring a working blacksmith shop.
Food and drink are also a popular part of Grey! Eat and drink your way along the Apple Pie Trail, choose fresh ingredients for supper at a farmers’ market or dine at a variety of restaurants. Two vineyards and three breweries are open for tours (be sure to check tour hours ahead of time). Enjoy one, two or more festivals and events, stay, play, shop and dine. Ontario's largest resort, Blue Mountain, has activities and attractions for all ages, with shopping and dining in the village.
