There certainly is a lot of hype surrounding ‘mindfulness’ these days—and for good reason with the hustle and bustled of our quick-paced lives. Grey County provides an awe-inspiring array of rich colours, sounds, smells and textures throughout the four seasons to practice mindfulness. Any patch of nature that captures your senses will do, be it the sun’s rays dancing through rustling trees, a warm breeze enveloping you, or an orchestra of crickets in tangled wild flowers.
This multi-use trail is 77 km and begins at East Bayshore Road in Owen Sound and provides good views of Georgian Bay as the trail climbs in elevation and follows a wide arc east of the city and runs parallel to Highway 6 to Chatsworth. The trail surface is stone dusted from Owen Sound to Holland Centre and then turns to coarse gravel from Holland Centre to Dundalk. The portion from Holland Centre to Dundalk is a rougher trail and allows for ATV use, and would best be suited for mountain bikes only. It is a part of the Grey County Cycling Brochure. www.visitgrey.ca/travel-tools/guides-brochures
