Trails & Paddling

Outdoor adventure definitely falls into the plan ahead, book ahead category for the summer of 2021! With more people discovering the wonders of the great outdoors, the trails and waterways of BruceGreySimcoe are experiencing higher-than-normal visitation.  Before heading out to hike or paddle, take a few moments to research your planned destination and book ahead wherever possible to avoid disappointment – this is especially important for the Grotto in Bruce Peninsula National Park where reserving your parking time slot ahead of time is highly recommended from May to October 31, 2021. 

Planning to hike a section of the Bruce Trail? The website’s COVID-19 Updates page has the latest in trail closures, parking updates and tips for Hiking Responsibly and Safely. Touch base with one of the four Bruce Trail Clubs for the latest on what’s happening locally. Install the “what3words” app on your phone if hiking is in your plans – the app can help rescue workers find you if you are lost or need emergency services
Paddling shorelines, meandering rivers, small lakes and bays by canoe, kayak or on a SUP make awesome summer memories.  Sea kayaking on magnificent Georgian Bay may be just the experience your soul is craving. The “what3words” app can come in handy for emergencies on the water, too.
Whether you’re an experienced explorer or a novice, booking a guided hike or paddling adventure with an outfitter is a new and fun way to venture into nature. Learn to paddle your own canoe by signing up for a course to learn efficient techniques and safety procedures. Check out the links below or visit the Where to Paddle page to start planning now…
No matter where your travels take you, abide by the guidelines in the Visitor Manifesto.
