SIMCOE COUNTY

Pick up your Cycle Simcoe map for routes and trails along picturesque back roads, rail trails and waterfronts. Outdoor bike repair stations are dotted throughout the county for easy fixes while on the road. Both Horseshoe Resort and Hardwood Ski & Bike have dedicated mountain biking trails, with bike and helmet rentals available.  If exploring by foot is more your thing, try the minimum impact Ganaraska Trail, which meets up with the Bruce Trail’s Mad River Side Trail at Glen Huron.

Must-Sees

  • Step waaaay back in time at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, Midland, a recreation of a mid-1600s French Jesuit Mission and Ontario’s first European Community.

  • Try a traditional family resort vacation — Fern Resort and Bayview Wildwood Resort are just two of great resort options in Simcoe County.

  • Take a step back in time at the Simcoe County Museum. Visit the galleries and explore the ten heritage buildings on the Museum grounds.

  • What better way to sample five local brews than the Beer Around the Bay tour?  Hint:  Book your tour with the Beer Bus and leave the driving to them.

  • Drop a line in legendary Lake Simcoe, one of several rivers or in an inland lake.  Whichever you choose, the fishin’ will be fine.
