(From the Township of Georgian Bluffs’ web site)
Close to home… far from ordinary!
Just a few hours from major Ontario cities, Georgian Bluffs is a collection of communities stretching north from Chatsworth to just south of Wiarton. Georgian Bluffs is an amalgamated Township consisting of the former Townships of Keppel, Sarawak and Derby with a population of 10,500.
We have an international airport, sports facilities, and a wide array of recreation opportunities.
The Niagara Escarpment winds through the Township affording scenic vistas, hiking on the Bruce Trail and hours of enjoyment for the naturalist, photographer or scenic driving tours. Self-guided Waterfall Tours (Indian, Jones & Inglis), Rural Garden Tours, Artisan Studio Tours and Scenic Tours are offered. Hikers , bicyclist, and horseback riders can also enjoy the Georgian Bluffs Trail from Owen Sound to Park Head and on into Bruce County.
Take your lunch and stop at any of the roadside, shoreline or park facilities. Stretch your legs and visit the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority Arboretum located just off County Road 18 on Inglis Falls Road.
For the more ‘extreme’ enthusiast, try caving at Bruce’s Caves, mountain biking or hiking on the rugged Bruce Trail, and climbing Skinner’s Bluff overlooking the Slough of Despond or through one of the many Conservation Areas throughout the Township.
