Blossom touring this weekend at Blue Mountain Village
Explore the region
Heritage lilacs at Craigleith Depot
If you are lucky enough to sneak away in the next few days a suggested route for amazing views & blossoms would be:
- Lilac alley at the Craigleith Heritage Depot (corner of Grey Rd 19 & Hwy 26)
- Top of Blue Mountain, or walk across Scenic Caves Suspension bridge
- Picnic stop at Ravenna Country Market (must try butter tarts)
- Wine tasting at Georgian Hills Vineyard (enjoy the cheese tray outside while wine sampling). Open 12-5pm
- Orchard wandering on any of the farms left, right or straight ahead.
If you have to wait until the weekend, Meaford expects their blossoms to peak. Take Hwy 26 west and stop at any of the markets open along the way including Goldsmith's (west of Thornbury) and Grandma Lambe's (east of Meaford).
For more touring ideas
visit either the Visitor Information Centre at the entrance of the
Village or the Guest Services team at Activity Central.
