Pioneer Trail scenery in French River

If you’re in the French River area and your legs are itching to go, the French River Multi-Use Trails offer little-known walking and riding options. The trail network consists of three main multi-use routes, with three shorter non-motorized-use side trails branching off. I’ve previously written about our excursion walking Pioneer Trail to Lac Barbotte Lookout, but since then, […]

Absolutely the Most Delicious Strawberries at Ruby Berry Farm

For the past two years, we’ve been picking our berries in Chelmsford. For those living in the Sudbury area, Ruby Berry Farm is a really great nearby option. We couldn’t be happier with our strawberries, and we’re definitely going back next year! We decided that we would start picking berries in Chelmsford because many of the farms closer […]

2 Loops on the Georgian Bay Coast Trail at Point Grondine

Scenery reminiscent of the Georgian Bay coastline at Point Grondine Park.

Always looking for new trails to hike in the Killarney area, we were thrilled to make our way to Point Grondine Park to spend a day on the Georgian Bay Coast Trail system. About halfway down the highway to Killarney, two stacked loops provide a few more day hiking and backpacking options to the beautiful Georgian Bay area. […]

Quite a few years ago now, I began experimenting with dehydrating foods such as our own hand-picked berries. At first, one of our main uses for the dried berries was to make trail mix for our backcountry trips. But I soon realized that I could easily diversify the foods we eat while out on the trail by making […]

Day Hike to The Crack & Beyond for Killer Views of Killarney Park

An amazing view from The Crack in Killarney :)

For a guaranteed fantastic day hike not too far away from home, we love heading out to The Crack in Killarney Provincial Park. Since it’s on the La Cloche Silhouette Trail, we go as far as we can until we have to turn back, so it’s never the same hike twice. And as one of Ontario’s high points […]

Weekend Hike to Five Finger Rapids on the French River

Fantastic scenery while on a weekend hike to Five Finger Rapids, French River.

French River is known for its paddling routes, not hiking trails. But few know that hikers can go backpacking Papase Trail at Dokis First Nation, a 21– to 28 kmkilometre return weekend hike to Five Finger Rapids on the French River. Nearly three years ago, we went hiking along the French River on Dokis First Nation’s Papase Trail […]

Ever since we went hiking up Rib Mountain on the Ottawa-Temiskaming Highland Trail a few years ago, we’d been dying to go see more of Temagami‘s backcountry. So last spring, we decided it was time to explore the White Bear Forest Trails. Based at Finlayson Point Provincial Park for the weekend, it was easy to combine a fishing […]
