Bruce and Grey Counties have a multitude of trail experiences available, from snowmobile trails, bike paths and walking trails along the Lake Huron and Georgian Bay shorelines, through unique habitats of the Bruce Peninsula, to inland forests and waterways of Saugeen Country and the Beaver Valley.
The Trout Hollow Trail meanders along the Bighead River valley, roaming shady woodlands and rolling meadows, and sometimes happening on reminders of visitors past. Along the trail you will find the remains of the Trout Hollow Sawmill where John Muir lived and worked with the Trouts while in Canada.
You'll see the river-ravished remains of a century old hydro dam and the powerhouse remains lost in the woods. When the season is right, salmon and trout fill the river and deer are very evident in the woods accompanied by the wild turkeys.
The rich natural diversity of these two Counties has been imprinted by a a variety of human activities on the landscape, creating a tapestry of trail experiences ranging from community trail systems such as the Georgian Trail, all the way to the world re-nowned Bruce Trail along the Niagara Escarpment.
