Road Trippin – Part 8

SUMMER DAY TRIPS BY CAR FROM BARRIE

As we welcome summer amid reopenings, we can all indulge in notions of traditional summer fare like patios, barbecues…and road trips!

Barrie’s central location makes us a prime hub to launch car voyages through the warm weather months.  Every Thursday through September, we’ll bring a new Ontario destination you can reach in a reasonable travel time. And if you’ve got some suggestions, we want to hear them!

Road Trippin’ – Part 8

CRYSTAL LAKE BOARDWALK

This five-kilometre looped hiking trail in the Bruce Peninsula wraps around the crystal-clear Cyprus Lake and brings you through a forest of century-old trees. Partly made up of a wooden boardwalk, it makes for an easy and scenic stroll.

Boardwalk

Take this short stroll to admire the small but astonishing plants that grow in the Singing Sands Fen habitat. This extremely delicate wetland is home to a variety of orchids and insect eating plants.

Forest Beach Loop

Head though the woods and dunes along Dorus Bay toward the rare alvar habitat. This exposed bedrock may seem barren, but mosses, lichens and some rare flower species flourish in this harsh environment.
