This pretty loop features open farmland and scenic views over the Saugeen River watershed. Head south from Neustadt on Grey Rd 10, climbing gradually to Conc. 12, and turning right, continue climbing through the beautiful rolling hills to the height of land at Deemerton. Now it is downhill towards Mildmay, a bustling town with lots of good eateries, including Bruce County’s best butter tarts at Harley’s Pub & Perk. Head north on Hwy 9, passing the Artisian Well, turn right at Conc. 14, and get ready for the ascent ahead. Carlsrhue sits on a high point, and take a break here to enjoy the view towards the Saugeen River valley to the north. Enjoy the well earned downhill back to Grey Rd 10. A short trip is to head into the Saugeen Conservation property which features cool shady walks, sulphur springs, and a variety of waterfowl. Head south on Grey Rd 10 and back to Neustadt, where you owe yourself a well-deserved cold one at Neustadt Springs Brewery.
