We spent a great day on the road driving around Blue Mountain chasing Apple Pies! Actually apples were a focal point but there are so many other things about the Trail. Wonderfully friendly owners at the Honey House in Clarksburg and the Ravenna Country Market. Excellent wines from Coffin Ridge (spectacular scenery at the end of a long, dirt road---worth it!) and Georgian Hills Wineries. Helpful suggestions from the Cheese Gallery in Thornbury regarding cheeses to go with our wine, later in the day, . Perhaps the best sausage (pork and cranberry) that we've ever had from the Farmer's Pantry. We didn't go to a lot of the restaurants as many are in the guide simply because they offer some kind of apple dish that would have probably been on their menu anyway. A word of caution: the Apple Trail brochure map is helpful generally but it's easy to get lost without a more detailed road map. Worst things can happen, though, than driving around Blue Mountain and just "coming across" places.

We were touring around the Apple Pie Trail up from Kitchener, Ontario and stopped at a few places along the trail, but the best experience wasn't even marked on any of the literature we picked up. After going north through Thornbury we came into Kimberley and found a quaint little spot where a music festival was happening. For the (cheap) $10 admission we saw three great music acts and enjoyed perusing the craft vendors that were part of the event as well. We were sorry that we couldn't stay for the closing act - Anne Lindsay, who is one of Canada's great folk/pop violin players. Wish we had known about that! We were told this event will be an annual on every Thanksgiving weekend and we are planning our return visit. Right up our alley!

What a cool adventure to share. The guided tour along the escarpment was very educational! I discovered that we are the largest wilderness area in southern Ontario making up an astonishing 5,000 acres of wilderness. Not only that, but this area is about 280 - 380 degrees above sea-level! Peter deVries from Summerbound was an awesome guide. He educated us on the history of this pristine land and area. We have 5 Private ski clubs and more skier business than Mount Tremblant. Can you believe that? At the top, in Kolapore, we stopped to take our guided snowshoe tour with Free Spirit Tours. The view from the top, overlooking the old growth forest, and ancient cedars is breathtaking! I had to sit down! And the woodpecker...he sure was busy looking for insects; there were shavings everywhere throughout the moss covered, forest floor. The Perfect Pairing wine tasting at Georgian Hills Vineyards after our 2 hour snowshoe was just most suiting. My favourite wine was the Pear - a lovely blend of Bartlett & Bosc. And I won't forget to mention the lunch to follow from the Ravenna Market. The mushroom soup was to die for! Yum. And after the tour to Thornbury and a visit to the Cheese Gallery, we topped it all off at the Village - Crock a Doodle Pottery..where we all chose a piece to paint. A nice way to wind down after a long, adventurous day! Thanks for the amazing adventure!

We had an amazing day snowshoeing in the forest with our guide from Freespirit Tours and then wine tasting at Georgian Hills Vineyard. Although they apparently can't call their frozen wine "ice wine" it is really nice and there are 3 varieties - grape, pear and apple. My favourite was the pear ice wine with cheese, the flavours are incredible. There are so many places on the trail we've visited over the past year and it's always a great experience with interesting people and products.
