I think it’s officially safe to say a big hello to spring.  With this season having one of the shortest transitions, you’ll want to make sure and take advantage of all the wonderful things to do and see in Grey County before summer comes roaring through. From hiking the trails and seeing the trilliums in bloom, visiting the newly thawed waterfalls and their crushing waves, to gearing up for some outdoor activities, you’ll want to do it all!

Spring Waterfalls
As the snow slowly melts away, it’s a great time to check out any of the
9 stunning waterfalls located in Grey County.  With a long and heavy winter coming to an end, you can bet the many local waterfalls are bulging with character and full of rushing rapids. Walter's Falls is a picturesque view located right in the village of Walter's Falls and can be enjoyed while dining at The Falls Inn & Spa. Another great spot is Eugenia Falls, where you will stand perched at eye level to the falls and watch the waves crash down below. Finish the day off with a trip to the Bicycle Café and enjoy their flavourful and eclectic menu and you have yourself a winning combo! What are you waiting for?

Saints & Sinners - Taste of the Trail
You’ll want to mark your calendars for this! On June 24th, you’ll have a chance to visit Moreston Heritage Village at Grey Roots Museum & Archives and taste your way through the Saints & Sinners Trail. Inspired by the Saints and Sinners exhibit, this event strives to bring together our local community and celebrate the vibrant history of Grey County during prohibition. Grab your friends and prepare for an evening of local wine, tasty bites and live music. For more information on the event, visit GreyRoots.com.

Trillium Hunting
Spring might be the most magical season of all as we see new life emerge in our forests’- through blossoming flowers, green landscapes and the sound of happy birds.  As we put away our winter boots and trade in for our rubbers, keep an eye out for the white trillium (Ontario’s provincial flower) along your hiking adventures. It’s not hard to pick out the trillium, unique with it’s three white petals, but when you do, make sure to leave it be in its natural habitat.  They need as much sunlight as possible to survive throughout the winter. 

First Round on the Greens
Our golf courses are slowly but surely perfecting their greens and opening up for those eager golfers who have been so patient all winter long. Our area has a wealth of quality golf courses, ranging in difficulty and often offering amazing views.  Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly outing or a challenging round on an expert course, there’s a great Grey County golf course for you.
