Experience Spring


 Springtime in Hastings County will dazzle your senses. Feel the cool splatter of mud on your skin while riding wet ATV trails. 

Stare, awestruck, at waterfalls in full flow. Taste the sweet delights of maple season and smell the heady perfume of lilacs in full bloom. 

The only thing you're not likely to feel is the bugs biting. 





Springtime in Hastings County is when our lush forests and vegetation wake from winter with roaring waterfalls and the arrival of lilacs. We welcome hikers, paddlers, cyclists and anyone looking to return to nature after the cold of winter.


This time of year can be a bit muddy, but it is best when embraced by ATV or by foot along our vast network of trails. It is also the sweetest time of year as our sugar bushes are busy making delicious maple syrup, and menus are getting creative with Canada's quintessential sweet treat. 


Hello Sunshine!
spring is in the air

Maple Season

 It's maple season! This is the time of year when the trees get tapped, and the sap starts to flow, to be then boiled down, into the quintessential Canadian sweetener that is maple syrup. There are plenty of seasonal menu items and fresh syrup to be had. Check out our interactive map below for producers to visit as well as cafes, restaurants and retailers offering maple-themed products.   

Note: Make sure to call ahead or check each business' social channels before travelling as availability and hours are subject to change.
