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.
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.
The Beaver River Canoe Route begins north of Kimberley, and winds its way through open areas and wooded stretches, with several views of the Niagara Escarpment, ending at the village of Heathcote.
Parking is available at Access Point 1. The paddle from Access Point 1 to Access Point 2 takes you from Kimberley to Epping. This 10 kilometre stretch takes about 2 to 3 hours to paddle. This stretch of the river is rugged and scenic.
Antique rose garden blooms end of June; medicinal and many culinary herbs laid out as knot garden. Extensive perennial selection.
