The Ganaraska Hiking Trail connects Port Hope on Lake Ontario with the Bruce Trail, 400 km in total. The trail is named after the Ganaraska Forest. From Lake Ontario, the trail heads north and west towards Lake Huron via Lake Simcoe.
Start and end of the trail pass through a gently sloping land of fields, woods and lakes. Use is made of quite a few beaver dams that were not intended for the hiker of course, but how else to arrive at the opposite side? The route uses small roads and paths. There are complaints about ATVs ruining the trail.
The middle part of the Ganaraska Hiking Trail is a wilderness trail in the rugged Canadian Shield. This part is harder to walk and your gear must be in accordance to the difficult terrain.
The trail ends on the shores of Georgian Bay, the edge of the Niagara Escarpment, where it meets the Bruce Trail. There is a 100-km long side stretch to Wasaga Beach.
