Kilometres of trails for all levels of hiking. Downtown Collingwood is welcoming with many unique shops and restaurants. Pianos are on the sidewalk in various locations where a person can sit down and play a tune.

We hiked the trail shortly after a heavy rainfall. The well-traveled trail presented a number of challenges such as slippery rocks and spots of mud. The views of Georgian Bay are stunning but be careful of the steep gorges... not the time for a selfie....More

Lovely trail for a sunset walk. Lots of those tiny little bugs that don’t bite but drive you crazy. Well worth the walk for the sunset view and view of the harbour.

Yesof course! You can rent a bike at the Hotel itself. They accomodate their Customer very gently. My hotel was the Georgian Bay Hotel and conference center in Collingwood.
