By Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority
With close to 161 hectares (400 acres) of countryside vistas, hardwood and coniferous forests, open meadows, and a series of caves, the Nottawasaga Bluffs offers a full day of exploration and adventure. The area is steeped in local history - pioneers once toiled to cut a living out of the wilderness. Timber and limestone proved to be big business for this area and as such, small communities like Singhampton and Glen Huron were established.
Hike the Ian Lang Heritage Trail and discover traces of an old stage coach road and estone kiln. Signs of an original homestead are still visible, and a fine patch of rhubarb bordering the old stone foundation still thrives. Connect with the Bruce Trail as it makes its way through the property or venture down one of its side trails to catch a variety of unique features.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Travel south from Collingwood through Duntoon on Simcoe Road 124. Just before Singhampton, turn left on Milltown Rd., then immediately left onto Ewing Rd. Follow Ewing to 17/18 S/R; turn left. At the next stop sign at a T-intersection, turn left. Continue for 500 m and watch for the parking lot on your right.
