About The Area
Welcome to Bruce County; one of the most spectacular 4 Season Destinations. Just Awesome part of Ontario for the outdoor person. Located only two and a half hours northwest of Toronto, the Bruce Peninsula offers Lake Huron on the west side and Georgian Bay to the east with numerous inland lakes throughout and also offers over 850 kilometres(531 miles) of beach and hikable coastline to explore. Explore the world famous Bruce Trail along the Bruce Peninsula which is an adventure to hike year round. With a Lake Huron on the west and Georgian Bay on the east, Bruce County is endowed with lots of beaches! However, it’s not the quantity of beaches that’s intriguing as it is the fantastical diversity. On the Lake Huron side, where the water is warm and the shore is sandy, there are gorgeous, long strands, action-packed hangouts, and quiet, shallow coves. On the rocky Georgian Bay side, where the water is cold and emerald in colour with long flat ledges, sea caves and pockets of big boulders.
If there’s snowmobiling in the forecast, the Bruce is where it is happening. The “lake effect”, snowfall is always generous generally arriving early in the season and staying late. As part of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs, District 9 has 2400 km of groomed trails and an abundance of sled-friendly communities consider a long distance looped excursion.
Our District 9 also includes Grey County right next door which we have teamed up with and created a dedicated District 9 snowmobile website with trails guides, conditions, accommodations, places to eat, shop and even links to trail permit purchasing.
