Nature Trails
Experience the quiet tranquility of the countryside while enjoying a stroll on our two beautiful nature trails. Lining the winding Nottawasaga River, the trails offer walkers, joggers, bird-watchers and snowshoers an opportunity to enjoy the splendour of nature.

Each path begins at the first hole of the Valley golf course. The gently winding paths lead you alongside the manicured golf greens treating you to a picturesque landscape of mature cedar trees and various native varieties of plants and flowers.

The Valley Trail is an easy 2.8 kilometre limestone trail that is best suited for a quick recreation hike or a leisurely stroll. Comfortable benches line the trail offering a space to rest on and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

The Briar Hill Trail is a moderate 3.5 kilometres roundtrip trail with a more challenging terrain. A winding path of gravel and limestone travels along several elevation changes, proving to be an excellent trail for hiking.

There are few things as relaxing as the warm glow of a fire on an evening. The outdoor fire pit, located beside the pond, offers circular seating for 25 people upon natural Canadian Glacier Cap Rock and is a perfect way to end your day.

Gather together and roast marshmallows, share stories, or sing your favourite campfire songs.

Enjoy the beautiful outdoors while you let the kids run around and blow off some steam at the outdoor playground. Located beside the Centre Ice Sportsplex arena, the outdoor playground offers parents and children a safe space to play freely in.

A variety of challenging climbers, slides and interactive stations provide both an entertaining and educational space. Climb the rock wall, win a game of X's and O's or hold an impromptu meeting under the walkway, because being a kid means that the possibilities are as big as their imagination.

Bocce Courts
A perfect pastime for a sunny day, the game of Bocce ball is suited for players of all ages. Bocce ball, an ancient game which most closely resembles bowling, involves a skilled hand and the right amount of strategy. Bocce is played between two players or two teams of up to four players on a team.

The Bocce ball court is located alongside the tranquil pond and is a short stroll from the hotel. Please visit the Sports & LeisureDome to pick up Bocce balls.

The volleyball court, located beside the soccer field, is a great pastime for mixed groups of all ages and skill levels. Ideal for large groups, you should have at least six players on two teams for a true game, but any number will do for a recreational game.

Whether you're learning the basics or engaging in a friendly competitive match, volleyball is an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors while having fun with friends and family. Please visit the Sports & LeisureDome to pick up a volleyball.


Gather together your friends and family and enjoy a fun and competitive game of horseshoes. The horseshoe pit, located on the grounds by the playground, is a classic lawn game best suited for two or four players.

Visit the helpful staff at the Sports & LeisureDome desk to pick-up your horseshoes.
