Santa Claus is comin' to town...or at least a town near you in Grey County! The holiday seasons brings us many parades and celebrations for the little ones to visit the man in red, and share their Christmas wish lists.
Parking is available at Access Point 1. The paddle from Access Point 1 to Access Point 2 takes you from Kimberley to Epping. This 10 kilometre stretch takes about 2 to 3 hours to paddle. This stretch of the river is rugged and scenic. Mature trees along the banks completely envelope the river in some locations, making it seem as if you are paddling in the wilderness. Paddlers should be be aware of possible debris, log jams and beaver dams which you may need to make a short portage around.
The Beaver River Canoe Route begins north of Kimberley, and winds its way through open areas and wooded stretches, with several views of the Niagara Escarpment, ending at the village of Heathcote.
Edible landscape includes fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, unusual perennail vegetables and salad greens; designed to be self-fertile and low-maintenance (and delicious!). 10-5 Thursday-Sunday, May 15-October 11.
No facilities on site other than parking and signage, but the sights to be seen after a 15 minute walk through the quiet woods make up for that.
