Time to Hit the Trail!
Dazzling fall colours, a crispness to the air, and Nature’s finest fragrances emanating from the orchards that define one of Southern Ontario’s most beautiful and inviting regions. This is Apple Country. And this is your chance to discover it.
Winding through the scenic towns of Collingwood, the Blue Mountains, Thornbury, Clarksburg, Meaford, and the beautiful Beaver Valley, the Apple Pie Trail offers adventure of culinary, cultural and dynamic description. First and foremost, it’s about the apples. Local markets now feature over 20 varieties including Ginger Gold, Jersey Mac, Gala, Honeycrisp, the famous McIntosh and the delectable Red Prince– found only in this area. And you won’t believe what the locals do with them. Follow the Trail for caramel apple lattes, apple cheesecake, apple crumble, apple art & yes even jewellery and, of course, out-of-this-world apple pie. Enjoy an afternoon of wine, cider and cheese tasting. Immerse yourself in local culture and discover apple history and apple-inspired art.
