Perhaps as long as 2000 years ago the area was populated by Native people, mainly the peaceful Hurons. French explorers, missionaries and fur traders travelled the region beginning in the 1600s.
European settlers began arriving in the 1820s. In 1819 a Black Settlement was established in Oro. The last CN train passed through in September 1996. The abandoned rail line was turned into a rail trail which gives users the opportunity to explore beautiful Oro-Medonte along the way.
Directions; Highway 11 to Memorial Avenue, Orillia. Turn south on Woodland Drive until you reach the trail.
Get your pass early, on-line and save!
