Ontario — Cycling

Subject: A message from the Honourable Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport

Ontario’s Cycling Tourism Plan
E-blast to Stakeholders..

To our Partners:

Cycling tourism in Ontario is experiencing rapid growth and we heard from our stakeholders that this is an important area for government and industry to work on together.

I am pleased to introduce the province’s first plan for cycling tourism, Tour by Bike: Ontario’s Cycling Tourism Plan. Ontario is home to extensive on and off-road cycling networks that stretch across the province, connect our communities and offer unique views of our urban and rural landscapes. Through this plan, we will increase and support cycling tourism opportunities in the province and promote cycling as a tourism draw in Ontario communities.

Tour by Bike: Ontario’s Cycling Tourism Plan builds on the work we began with the Tourism Action Plan and the Strategic Framework for Tourism in Ontario. It will also support #CycleON : Ontario’s Cycling Strategy and Ontario’s Trails Strategy.

The plan is available on our website and I encourage you to share this information with your contacts.

I am excited to launch our Cycling Tourism Plan, and I look forward to continuing our work to grow tourism in Ontario.

All my best,

Eleanor McMahon

Hiking in Lanark Highlands

It’s a great time to explore the Highlands – on foot!

Baird Trail hiking Lanark Highlands

Our unique hiking trails are easily accessible and provide residents and visitors with thrilling natural vistas and views.

One of the most famous trails in Lanark Highlands is the one to Blueberry Mountain. Named one of the seven wonders of Lanark County, the hike up to the highest point in the Highlands offers unforgettable vistas, and yes, wild blueberries. Situated near Flower Station on Hills of Peace Road, Blueberry Mountain trail is one of many on the CliffLAND property which is protected by a land-trust conservation easement.  It’s open year-round by appointment. Call 613-259-3412.

The Lanark County Municipal Trails Corporation manages trails on county-owned property with a particular interest in offering accessible trail options.

One of those is the Baird Trail. Featuring huge maple and beech trees, old rail fences and even a boardwalk through a wetland, the trail located on Herron Mills Road is beginner-level and well worth the drive.

Other trails in the Highlands include Kate’s Lake trail near Tatlock on Crown Land, the K&P Trail which follows the former Kingston to Pembroke railway line, Lammermoor Road trail near Hopetown, and more. Local sugarbushes, Wheeler’s Maple Syrup Camp and Pancake House near McDonald’s Corners and Temple’s Sugar Bush on Ferguson’s Falls Road also have associated trails and interpretive walks through their land.

Go fishing in Lanark Highlands

Looking to cast a line and make memories during Ontario Family Fishing Week? Lanark Highlands is the perfect place!

With more than a dozen lakes in our area, the fishing is top notch. This week, from July 6 to 14, Canadian residents can experience licence-free fishing.  That means it’s a great opportunity to explore Lanark Highlands’ pristine waters and reel in the big one.

Check out Lanark Highlands Business Tourism Association’s section on fishing in the Highlands, including our pamphlet. We have places to rent boats, get bait and even spend the night telling fishing tales. Click here to go to our fishing section! For more information specifically about the provincial fishing week, click here. See you on the lake!
