The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
This trail is accessed from the Georgian Trail, which runs between Meaford and Collingwood. Within the County property, the trail traverses a forest of lowland hardwoods and a conifer plantation. The kilometre-long trail is suitable for skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, and running, with a beautiful lookout point and views. Parking is located off of Swathmore Drive, which can be accessed from Highway 26. *Please note: Due to trail improvement construction, the trail is currently closed for the 2016/17 winter season, and will re-open in the spring or early summer when the project is complete.
