Grey County

Grey County is where Bluewaters and Blue Mountains meet! The Niagara Escarpment (a World Biosphere Reserve) winds across the county, affording rare flora, the highest viewpoints and most scenic trekking in Ontario along the famous Bruce Trail or Trout Hollow Trail. The Georgian Trail and Georgian Bluffs Trail offer level, off-road corridors for biking, skiing and walking. The region has the greatest concentration of rock climbing cliffs, caves, waterfalls, and winter sports facilities in the province, as well as the biggest ziplines, extreme adventure tours and downhill mountain bike hills. Rivers such as the Beaver, Bighead and Sydenham support healthy runs of trout and salmon that draw anglers and fishway viewers from afar. Craigleith Provincial Park presents a fossil shale shoreline while many other nature reserves such as Pretty River and Kolapore Uplands preserve enchanting places to explore unique landscapes. Owen Sound is known as a cultural capital where numerous entertainment venues, art galleriesmuseums and heritage events are cultivated by a vibrant arts community. The abundant apple orchards along Georgian Bay have inspired the Apple Pie Trail that features local apple products. Other regional food specialties can be found at shops, restaurants and the Saints and Sinners Craft Brewery Trail.
