|Bruce Trail Hiking|
Welcome to the most beautiful season in Bruce County! We want you to experience the warm palate of colour from Mother Nature just like we do, every day. Down the left side of this page is a list of some of the top spots we want you to add to your Trip Plan when you visit the area this fall. Whether you are looking for adventure, relaxation, family time, or simply just to get away, Bruce County will intrigue, romance, and invigorate you.
The Bruce Trail, Canada’s oldest and longest footpath, begins or ends in Tobermory. It then snakes down the eastern shoreline of the Bruce Peninsula to the town of Wiarton. The fall weather is perfect for hiking, and the rusty blush of leaves against stark limestone make for a picture at every turn.
If you’d rather be on two wheels, why not explore the coastal back roads on your motorcycle. Discover some great scenery, either as part of your weekend getaway or just daytrip? If a self-propelled two-wheeler is more your thing, crisp mornings are great for Mountain Biking. There are lots of forest trails to ride, bike, or hike on.
If you plan on staying awhile, why not try fall camping at MacGregor Point Park? While you’re there, spend some quality time outdoors by reacquainting yourself with nature or trying your hand at fishing. If you would rather look to the rusting canopy, fall is a perfect time to catch the southern migration for many of bird species.
Keep your eyes peeled as Pumpkins are dotting local farms, and corn stalks are making an appearance in our Farmers Markets. Bruce County offers some of the best opportunities for buying Local Food, and we pride ourselves on our famous Bruce Beef. We also invite you to experience the excitement of Pumpkinfest, our biggest fall festival during the first weekend of October,
On cooler fall days, learn more about Bruce County, its history, and its future at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre in Southampton. This state-of-the-art brand new facility has 8,000 square feet of display space and 4,000 square feet of archival space. The Ghostly Guardians of the Bruce, a lighthouse exhibit, is now on display.
