Hiking, Biking & Paddling
This 2.80-mile loop trail near Springwater, Ontario is great for hiking and walking with few people encounters along the way making it an ideal destination in any season! The best times to visit are April through October when there’s little rain or snowfall which means shorter commute times from your home base since most roadways become inaccessible due those conditions being present at some point during this time period anyway – but don’t worry if that doesn’t bother you because dogs are always welcome here so they can go off leash where appropriate while enjoying all these incredible views too 😉
Cycling is permitted on all park trails except the 1.5 km children’s interpretive trail.
There aren’t any options for paddling in this provincial park
Springwater Provincial Park is located less than 10 minutes from Barrie and under 90 minutes from downtown Toronto. Best reached by car.
Springwater is open for day use year-round so that you can enjoy your winter activities, expect to pay entrance/parking fees.
Day trips to Springwater are perfect for those looking at what winter has on offer outside Barrie. 10km of trails allow you the opportunity to hike or cross-country ski through beautiful trees while enjoying a pristine natural environment!
Before heading out, you can check snow conditions. This isn’t the exact location, but Wasaga Beach is quite close, so there should be similar conditions.
This park has no equipment rental, so don’t forget your snowshoes, cross-country skis, and snacks.
Being so close to Barrie, there are plenty of places to get hot drinks, snacks, and meals.
