Tiny Beaches and Georgian Bay

This ride takes in more of the nearly 40 k of beaches in Nottawasaga Bay. We take you on a scenic trip through Balm Beach heading north passing many more beaches to Thunder Bay Beach. We pass Awenda Park and travel through Kettle’s Beach and Sawlog Bay on our way to Penetanguishene. Follow 93 south and heading to the Festival for food and entertainment. Check your fuel level!

TAY AND SEVERN TOWNSHIPS PLUS A TOUCH OF MUSKOKA

We cross three counties to access The Big Chute Loop starting in the village of Coldwater. Left at the flashing four-way to Upper Big Chute Road which takes you through Severn Falls to Big Chute and the World Famous Marine Railway.

Very curvy road for 20k past Big Chute, test your skills!

Back through Waubaushene once the hub of the logging industry, supporting numerous saw mills and on to Midland via Highway 12.

As we approach Midland, we have the present home of the Keewatin (one of original Great Lakes luxury steamships) in Port McNicoll. The next sites to note just before Midland are the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre and Sainte-Marie among the Hurons village. On the north side of 12 is the Martyrs’ Shrine named for the priests who lost their lives.
