Kemble Mountain Loop


Kemble Mountain offers visitors a diversity of ecosystems including upland hardwood forest, silver maple swamp, Escarpment talus slope and open fields. A network of trails along logging roads winds through the forest, taking hikers and skiers to the cliff edge for an impressive view over Georgian Bay farmlands and the village of Kemble below.



The forest at Kemble Mountain is typical of the high quality sugar bushes found throughout Grey County. In pioneer times, these forests provided lumber for homes, barns and furniture as well as maple syrup, wood for heating and cooking, and potash. Most of Kemble Mountain Management Area has been classified as a Life Science Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI). The forest is home to two provincially rare and eight locally rare plant species.

With file information from the Bruce Trail, for more information on this and other Bruce trails please purchase the Bruce Trail map and trail guidebook. The Bruce Trail is the oldest and longest marked hiking trail in Canada. It is 840 km long, with over 440 km of side trails. Every year more than 400,000 visits are made to the Trail as people walk, snowshoe, watch wildlife, take photographs and admire the glorious scenery of the Escarpment.



The Bruce Trail was instrumental in the Escarpment being named a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations in 1990 - one of only twelve such reserves in all of Canada. The Bruce Trail is a member of the Ontario Trails Council through affiliation with Hike Ontario.
