Simply and stunningly beautiful, the Bruce is transformed in winter. Stroll Lake Huron’s frosty shorelines on one side of the Bruce Peninsula and join up with the local Bruce Trail hiking club to hike or snowshoe the Bruce Trail on the other. A winter paradise, Bruce County has excellent trail systems with groomed snowshoe and cross-country ski trails that pass through wooded areas, parks and along community trail systems. Add in warm and friendly communities, cozy places to stay and a fun variety of cafes and restaurants, plus seasonal events, and you’ve found the perfect winter hideaway.
Strap on the snowshoes to explore the natural beauty of the Bruce. Both the Sauble Beach Cross-Country Ski Club trails and the Sawmill Ski Trails are groomed and waiting for you. Book a cool guided tour with Bruce Peninsula Eco Adventures for a totally amazing winter adventure.
