Outdoor Fun

Winter is not an indoor sport – take it outside and play in the beautiful natural playground of BruceGreySimcoe!


Tour some of Ontario’s best snowmobile trails in District 8 and District 9 this cold weather season.  BruceGreySimcoe’s extensive system of groomed snowmobile trails run seamlessly from Bruce to Grey to Simcoe County and back again – perfect for daytrips and longer tours.

Ice Fishing

Without a doubt, the best ice fishing in Ontario is on Lake Simcoe.  Perch, lake trout and whitefish are just a few of the species waiting beneath the ice.  Outfitters can help set you up with ice hut and equipment rentals.  It’s a great pastime for families, groups of guys and gals or just on your own.  For safety reasons, always check ice conditions with a local outfitter or operator before venturing onto the ice to fish.

Winter Hiking

Beautiful and peaceful best describes BruceGreySimcoe’s trails during the snowy months.  Hike the iconic Bruce Trail on its route through Grey and Bruce to where it hooks up with the minimum-impact Ganaraska Trail at Glen Huron, which travels into Simcoe County.   Dress for the weather and check weather conditions and forecasts before heading out on the trails.  Great for snowshoeing, too!

Tubing & Ice Skating

No skill required to be pulled up the hill and then slide down in a cushy inflatable tube! Try it out at Snow Valley, Horseshoe Resort and Blue Mountain Resort.   Skate the old-fashioned way – outside!  Twirl and glide at MacGregor Point Provincial Park and Owen Sound’s Harrison Park.   Follow the icy trail at Discovery Harbour, Fern Resort or the new Woodview Mountaintop Skating loop at the top of Blue Mountain.  Also new in 2018 is the skate trail at the Simcoe County Museum. Frosty night skates are just magical under the stars and lights.  No skates?  Not a problem – rentals available at some locations.
