The Barrie section starts at the Sugarbush Estate near Horseshoe Valley Road, about 10 km east of highway 400. The trail passes through the rolling moraine hills of Oro township, past Horseshoe Valley ski resort, crosses highway 400 west of Craighurst, highway 26 west of Midhurst and heads west, through the Minesing swamp to highway 90, where it ends after 50 kilometres.
The terrain is very varied and is suitable for novices. There are the rolling sand hills, the scenic Willow creek valley near Midhurst, forests, quiet country paths, the historic Willow Creek depot and much more. The part going through the Minesing swamp can be very wet in spots early in the spring.
