A grant from Mountain Equipment Co-op will allow easier access to several Amazing Places.

Parry Sound North Star

PARRY SOUND – The Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve has received a grant from Mountain Equipment Co-op to improve infrastructure and access to several of the Amazing Places.

Ten Amazing Places were nominated by the public to showcase special features of the Georgian Bay Biosphere region. The program wants to connect people to nature, and is developing a route with community partners to encourage people to get outside and experience the 30,000 Islands area.

The $14,368 from MEC will go towards signage, bike racks, and trails to enhance access to Amazing Place locations. Partners at each place will install trailhead signs that highlight activities year-round, natural wonders, and cultural history.

You talked! We listened! As a Canadian campaign we want you to feel secure about donating in Canadian dollar currency instead of US currency. Visit our new campaign donation page at https://www.tilt.com/tilts/guelph-to-goderich-rail-trail. We have moved our campaign over to a great crowdfunding website called Tilt. Through this we are able to not only have no fees on donations we earn but when you send a donation using a Visa Debit or Mastercard Debit there are no fees at all as opposed to other platforms which can take up to 10% in site fees and credit card fees! Meaning every cent goes to this great initiative. Thank you for understanding and sharing your concerns, and thank you for donating. You can look below for our donation perks.

Each trail segment and community can benefit directly from this $60,000 fundraising campaign. We’ve had a tremendous amount of support in the past from communities that are touched by the G2G Rail Trail experience. The 127 km route is made up of the amazing Kissing Bridge Trailway, Perth Harvest Pathway and the Lake Huron Route.

G2G Crowdfunding Campaign Info:

The Guelph to Goderich Rail Trail surrounds cyclists and hikers with the richness of Ontario’s pastoral landscape and rural heritage. Through hushed forest groves and rolling Mennonite farmland, across river valleys and wetlands, past 13 villages and towns, to the sunset horizon of one of the world’s Great Lakes, visitors of all fitness and skill levels can enjoy any part of the G2G’s 127-km length through four counties. Completion of the G2G Rail Trail opens Ontario’s pastoral heartland to the global fitness and recreation phenomena of backpacking and cycle tourism. The G2G helps rural Ontarians share their countryside and hospitality with the world.

I would love to go to the lake and walk around but unless I live right by the lake there is nowhere to park to get to the lake. Does anybody go to this lake that doesn’t live right beside it because it seems to be right in the middle of apartment buildings, townhouses and houses where there is no parking. How do I get to go to the lake and where do I park so I can do this?

If you park at meadowvale towncenter close to the bus terminal. There is a path from the bus terminal that leads right into the ” aquitaine loop ” trail as i call it. Walk my dog there all the time. Its great. Walk across the field where the busses pick up passengers. And the path leads to a tunnel with beautiful murals and past the community center and voila your at lake aquitaine. Enjoy.
