Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
Our Area of the Bruce Trail runs from Lavender to Craigleith. The terrain changes abruptly as the Bruce Trail enters the Blue Mountains. Here are Ontario's best-known ski resorts, set among high bluffs interspersed with deep wide valleys. From the Trail there are excellent views of the rolling countryside and Nottawasaga Bay. We have wonderful hiking opportunities year round. Come on out and enjoy them. We hope to see you on our trails. New hikers are always welcome on our outings.
