So, you like to travel right? Explore new places, eat different foods, take pictures and share them with your Instagram friends? We challenge you to take the Grey County Tourist Challenge this year. Why? Because Tourism Matters in Grey County.
This ourt displays the contrast between the west and east shores of Owen Sound, since many of the roads are not paved and because of the Land Force Training Centre you cannot travel around the full peninsula.
Enjoy the views of Geogian Bay as you ride the Blue Mountain Gondola up the Niagara Escarpment. The rest of the route is like a roller coaster, cruising downhill past agricultural lands, passing orchards along the way.
Starting from one of several park and ride locations, either in the town centre or closer to the trailhead, follow the east bay shoreline out from Owen Sound. Enjoy waterviews across the inlet, once an important commercial shipping port for the region, now a hub for recreational boaters.
Never far from the water and spectacular bay views this pleasant ride showcases the vast expanse and beauty of Georgian Bay. Starting from the busy harbourfront area and town centre of Meaford, follow quiet lakeshore roads, passing parks and beaches with waterfront homes and cottages near the shoreline.
On any given day in Grey County, you can pass cyclists, horseback riders, pedestrians and farmers travelling along our mostly two-lane roads. With so many varied users, it’s imperative that motorists and other users drive with care, respect each other’s space and work together to share the road.
