With this seeming like the shortest yet, you’ll want to take advantage of all the wonderful things to do and see in Grey County before summer comes roaring through. Home of the Apple Pie Trail
, the Saints & Sinners Trails
and plenty of delicious things to eat, see and drink — it’s bound to become your go to weekend destination.
From hiking the trails and seeing the trilliums in bloom and visiting the newly thawed waterfalls to gearing up for some outdoor activities with a cider in hand, you’ll want to do it all!
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 the way. These stunning white lily-like flowers are some of the first to pop through the brown leaf litter. You can also find loads of edible treasures in Grey’s forest too — like trout lillies, ramps and wild ginger.
Saints & Sinners – Taste of the Trail
You’ll want to mark your calendars for June 24th! 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.

As the snow slowly melts away, the 9 stunning waterfalls
located in Grey County come to life. 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.
