Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
Upon reaching the brow of the Niagara Escarpment, which at this point rises 152 metres above the Beaver Valley, the view takes your breath away! This location can be accessed off Grey County Road 13 just outside Kimberley. 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. 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.
Edible landscape includes fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, unusual perennail vegetables and salad greens; designed to be self-fertile and low-maintenance (and delicious!). 10-5 Thursday-Sunday, May 15-October 11.
