Located on the Niagara escarpment just south of the shores of Georgian Bay, Clearview Township is critically underrated. This beautiful region is filled with an assortment of hidden gems that often go unnoticed by the average tourist. Luckily, our staff came up with a list of our 5 favourite things to do in Clearview!
Nature lovers, unite! The Clearview EcoPark is a recreational green space designed to educate the public on the importance of rich ecosystems and the impact of interactions between humanity and the natural environment. Meander down a plethora of lovely trails and boardwalks, keeping an eye on the skies to glimpse some of the 130 bird species known to nest in the park. Branch out to view the variety of native tree species meticulously planted by local students and residents. You may even stumble upon the pollinator garden designed to support the pollinators and wildlife in the area! The EcoPark is so beautiful that you won’t beleaf your eyes!
Hop on over to Creemore with a spring in your step knowing that you have the opportunity to visit Creemore Springs Brewery!

The Old Mill House Pub

The Nottawasaga Lookout is an astonishingly spectacular view of the Niagara escarpment and the geological marvels it offers. Hike through some vast farmland before being plunged into the majestic trillium-infused forest winding around crevasses and diverse plant life. Your physical effort is rewarded by beautiful views of Georgian Bay and the surrounding landscape. This breathtaking hike is a free and phenomenal activity in the Clearview area.
