Wasaga Beach Provincial Park: From the Nordic Centre, hikers can explore the extensive Wasaga Beach Provincial Park, and experience the unique ecosystem and nature that is found here. The forest is a pine-oak savannah, which is one of the rarer forms of forest, it is much like a combination between tall grass prairies of the west and Canadian Shield forests to the Northeast. The Provincial Park is also home to one of the largest uninterrupted parabolic dune systems in Ontario, meaning the park itself is filled with hills and dunes of sand, disguised as the forest floor.
Monument Hill Trail: The Monument Hill Trail takes you through a variety of fascinating scenes in the Wasaga Beach Provincial Park. Once you reach the top of the trail, the view from the hill is gorgeous. Looking northwest, you get a view of the park, which sprawls out to the bay and escarpment in the background. Monument Hill itself is actually a parabolic dune, so it is a hill made completely out of sand!
Ganaraska Trail: The Wasaga Beach section of the Ganaraska Trail, winding past the waterfront, through the provincial forest, and past an epic view of the Oxbow Dunes. It then follows the McIntyre Creek Valley, and heads out onto quiet country roads. This trail is one not to miss out on!
Whether you canoe, kayak, or SUP, the Nottawasaga River provides an excellent route and many starting points, varying in difficulty for various skill levels. Whether you paddle downriver to Nancy Island, or upriver to Jack’s Lake, the Nottawasaga is full of wildlife and beautiful scenery.
