In order to avoid crowded hiking locations this fall, we suggest discovering some of these lesser known gems, where the colours are just as stunning.
Old Baldy is experiencing significant crowding. Please, if you arrive and find the parking lot is full, consider visiting one of the many other beautiful lookouts in Grey County.
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. Sitting on the brow of the Niagara Escarpment, which at this point rises 152 metres above the Beaver Valley, the view takes your breath away! The four-season trail becomes increasingly rugged with a steep ascent closer to the cliffs and white trail blazes indicate that it is part of the Bruce Trail. Excellent Lookout over the Beaver Valley. Parking fee applies. Address: 120 Old Baldy Access, Grey Highlands. From Grey Road 13 south of Kimberley turn east onto Artemesia/Euphrasia Townline. Turn left on 3rd Line A, and left onto Sideroad 7B, and left onto Old Baldy Access. A large information sign is located just off the parking lot as you start out on the trail to the south.
