Highlands Trail Tours

Guided Tours Offer Glimpse Into The Forces That Shaped the Escarpment

The Escarpment is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, only one of thirteen in Canada,  because of its unique cliffs and because and unique forest ecosystem, one of the oldest in eastern North America.

 

Highlands Trail Tours is a 2 hour excursion into the escarpment at Duntroon Highlands, which sits nestled on one of the highest points of the escarpment near Collingwood, the Blue Mountains and Creemore.

 

The tour offers breathtaking views of the Nottawasaga Valley, the refreshing sound of babbling brooks and an immersive  exploration of:

 

Forests: Discover 10 different types of trees that call the escarpment home, what makes them special and what they contribute to the eco-system

 

Formations: The rock that forms the Escarpment was laid down over 400 million years ago under a giant warm sea. The trails follow a stream that forms the headwaters of the Batteaux as well as a ledge formed by erosion of the softer limestone.

 

Farming History: Evidence of unique Indigenous settlements dot the escarpment but it was the Scottish farmers who dramatically started changing the landscape.  The remains of their farming efforts are highlighted and how they shaped what Duntroon Highlands looks like today.

 

As part of the tour, guests get all day use of the extensive Duntroon Highlands trail network which includes access to the Bruce Trail, safe parking for your vehicle and a chance to enjoy locally inspired food and beverages at the Cafe patio or out on the trails.
