The Tiny Trail passes over agricultural land and into areas of hardwood forest. The Wye River and Copeland Creek meander across the trail at many points, providing habitat for resident wildlife and scenic views of nature at its best.
The 22.5 km abandoned railway right of way located in the Township of Tiny, County of Simcoe has its southern terminus at the Tiny/Flos (Springwater) line 1.5 km north of Elmvale. It runs roughly north, parallel to County Road 6, one of the main north-south arteries of the Township and then angles northeastward to its north terminus at the southern town limits of Penetanguishene.
Within a few kilometres of the trail, users have access to the Tiny Marsh Wildlife Area, which is classified as a provincially significant wetland, with trails, canoeing, boardwalks and an education centre. Also less than 10 kilometers to the west of the trail are some of the longest freshwater sand beaches in North America along southern Georgian Bay.
Adjacent to the trail at about its midpoint is the Ossossane Bone Pit, an ancient site of Huron/Wendat mass burials, which has been recognized for its historical and archaeological value. The Trail is enjoyed year round by outdoor enthusiasts and offers the ideal location to walk, bird watch, jog, or cycle during the spring, summer and fall.
