Gorgeous Grey has it all — fun outdoor experiences, delicious culinary adventures and cultural activities. Whether it’s a hike along the Bruce Trail, a paddle down the Beaver River, cycling the scenic country roads or savouring the view from the top of Blue Mountain, there’s an experience to suit you. Some of the most spectacular vistas along the Bruce Trail can be seen along this section of the trail as it winds its way through Grey into Bruce and hooks up with the minimum-impact Ganaraska Trail at Glen Huron near Collingwood. Less rugged trail systems can be found in Grey’s communities, parks and along rail trails, just right for a more leisurely stroll or family outing. The paved back roads of Grey are a cyclist’s dream, passing through a variety of terrain ranging from farmers’ fields to forested areas with hills and curves adding a bit of a challenge. For mountain bikers and those who prefer a more relaxed touring speed, there are kilometres of dirt and community trails.
Hike the Bruce Trail and take in panoramic views of Georgian Bay, rolling hills and leafy, green forests.
Take in the scenery from Southern Ontario's longest suspension bridge at Scenic Caves Nature Adventures and book an Eco Adventure Tour for the full experience.
Open year round, there's nothing like Blue Mountain Village for summer fun! Make it a daytrip to shop, dine and enjoy the free Village activities and events. Or book at one of the many on-site accommodators and stay a night or two — there's plenty to do after a day hiking, biking, shopping or any of the on-site activities with lots of restaurants and night life. It makes a getaway, too, as a couple, with a group of friends or the family.
Nestled in a peaceful wooded setting, Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain makes the perfect escape from everyday. Warm baths followed by cool waters to plunge in rejuvenate and refresh. Spend some time in the infrared sauna, the eucalyptus steam bath and lazing quietly in a hammock. Plan ahead for your soothing massage and book in advance to avoid disappointment.
