Boyne Valley Provincial Park

Reviewed By PatFerris - George Town, Canada

This park has no buildings or staff, just lots of deep Valleys, high Lookouts, meadows, and cedar Forests. Lots of apple trees for fall visits, has always been a great place for bird watching as well. Camping is not allowed, more of a hikers haven not too far from the city.

Island Lake Conservation Area

Reviewed By Topher E - Ontario, Canada

What a fantastic park/ trail just minutes from the town. you'd think you are up in muskoka enjoying the water, trails and nature. Even on a chili November day, its relaxing and really beautiful. If you like photography its a fantastic stop for great photos.

Dufferin County Museum

Reviewed By Janet L

Having recently decided to see what other folks had to say about an area I often travel through I was surprised to find only two reviews. I haven't stopped by in about a year so I went to the website to be certain the museum was still worth a visit and it certainly is. I like the small cases with their carefully curated selection of items on a particular theme. It is not necessary to have a lot of bells and whistles to make a museum interesting. Children at the very least will enjoy climbing the stairs to the Silo Gallery.

Hockley Valley Resort

Reviewed By harvman - Markham, Canada

We made 4 separate trips to the golf course this summer and this course is real gem in and around the city. Gorgeous views, stunning elevation changes (especially on the par 3;s) and all grass bunkers make for a truly enjoyable round of golf. You'll need every club in the bag and an eye for creativity as you'll be challenged with uneven lies, and some narrow and small targets to be successful here. But the reward is in the full experience - whether you get a birdie or a 9. Worth the drive.

Forks of the Credit Provincial Park

Reviewed By Nicola R - Noelville, Canada

The Forks of the Credit Park is beautiful in the fall, but it's best in the spring. So many of our trails in Caledon are in the forest, but the Forks Park has wide open meadows as well as deeply incised Forests. On those first sunny days of spring, you can feel the warmth on your back in this park. I suggest lying down in a protected spot and just absorbing the Sunshine. Call it vitamin D if you want.
My hiking guide, Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes, describes many of the trails that crisscross this great park. If you want detailed instructions on visiting the Waterfalls and ruins, lazing by the Credit River and wandering through the hamlet of Brimstone, it will tell you how. It will even give you ideas on where to stop for lunch or a latte after your walk.
The Forks of the Credit Park is a lovely hilly place with a great network of trails. It is where the Niagara Escarpment meets the Oak Ridges Moraine so you get near cliffs as well as the kames and kettles of the moraine. But be warned, it is no where near Alliston, despite what Trip Advisor says. This is an error due to the fact the park is managed by the same group that manages Earl Rowe Provincial Park, which is near Alliston. The Forks of the Credit Park is in Caledon.

Great venue to watch a one man performance of the second in a series of the trials and tribulations of moving to the country. We had the bonus of receiving a sundae during the intermission because it was Sundae Sunday.

Rawhide Adventures

Reviewed By Kulbi - Thornhill, Canada

The varied terrain contributes to an interesting ride that is not a nose to tale walk for two hours. The health and safety of the very well-trained horses is paramount at this ranch. The owners goal is to provide riders the best possible experience and ability to enjoy the woods, fields and hills of Ontario on very sound mounts.

Farmhouse Pottery

Reviewed By Jeff S - Caledon, Canada

We discovered Farmhouse Pottery by accident. A favourite photographer, Rob Stimpson, was speaking on Antarctica and we decided to attend. We are so glad we did. The place is a beautiful setting for talks on the outdoors. There is some wonderful pottery and the pie after the lecture was warm and fantastic. Can't beat the coffee either. We enjoyed ourselves so much we returned a few weeks later for the final lecture of the season by Nicola Ross, a local writer and avid hiker. We also purchased a pottery canoe for our daughter, which is a very unique piece. Perhaps the best part about the place is the owner Al Pace. He is very welcoming and is eager to share a story or two. This place is a gem and worth the visit. They also run a canoe expedition company that offers trips in the Yukon and Northwest Territories that has piqued my interest as well.
