This trail skirts the Georgian Bay shoreline and provides a good view if Giant's Tomb Island. Make sure to take notice of the contrast between the dry Oak/Maple forest of the campgrounds and the low, wet, Birch/Cedar/Hemlock forest below the bluff.
The Beach Trail is a 4 km linear trail that allows visitors to walk along Georgian Bay to each of the park's four beaches. Giant's Tomb Island, which is a part of Awenda Provincial Park, can also be viewed from along the trail.
Improvements to the trail at 1st beach include washroom facilities, a picnic site complete with a wheelchair-accommodating table, plus a smooth, hard-packed trail surface extending from the parking lot to the viewing platform located between 1st and 2nd beach. Recent upgrades to the Beach Trail have provided for easier wheelchair access.
Please note that pets are prohibited from using that portion of the Beach Trail, which connects the second, third and fourth beach areas.
