The entire Ganaraska Trail is 500 km long and goes from Port Hope to the Bruce Trail near Collingwood, with side trails to Wasaga Beach and Midland.

The Mad River Section has a 50 kilometre section of trail that runs more or less west through Angus and Glencairn.

The Wasaga section begins just south of Archer Road on River Road East. The trail winds through the sand hills of Wasaga Beach Provincial Park to Wasaga Beach, providing great views of the Nottawasaga River deep below in the valley. From there, the trail goes through the valley of the McIntyre Creek and passes along quiet country roads to Smithdale, east of Glen Huron, where it connects with the Mad River section.
