The Township of Tiny trail network is one of the first successful "rail to trails" conversions in Ontario. The 22 kilometres of linear greenway was purchased in the late 1970's and is an essential component of the municipal system.
The trail runs parallel to Simcoe County Road 6. It veers off a little to the east between Concessions 8 and 9 of Tiny. The northern part of the trail ends at County Road 26 in the Town of Penetanguishene and the southern part at the Springwater/Tiny border.
Access can be made where the trail meets County Road 26 and Highway 27, and at intersections with other roads. The rail-trail connects with Bernie Leclair Memorial Park in Perkinsfield, and the Wyevale Park in Wyevale. Parking is available at all access points and in Wyevale Park and Bernie Leclair Park.
The multipurpose trail is used by many outdoor enthusiasts in the off-winter months for such activities as hiking, bird watching, walking, mountain/recreational biking and horseback riding.
In the winter months, the trails are enjoyed by snowmobilers and cross-country skiers. Snowmobiles are the only motorized vehicles allowed on the trail.
Imagine hiking through the hardwood forests, ablaze with spectacular colour in the fall, walking alongside rural farms with streams rippling by or biking past the rolling greens of a golf course. If you listen closely you may hear the musical trill of the Song Sparrow or Yellow Warbler. Or you may be lucky enough to spot a Blue Jay, Oriole or Bobolink in the treetops. You can journey into the past when you visit the native burial ground (Ossossane Bone Pit) or the Wyevale Monument, which is the old location of the Wyevale Train Station.
The Township of Tiny is proud to own and manage the "Tiny Trail" and welcomes local residents and visitors to enjoy the experience.
Southern Georgian Bay has multi-use trails that follows the shorelines and connects the communities in the Townships of Tay and Tiny, and the Towns of Midland and Penetanguishene.
Sections of the trails are registered as part of the Trans Canada Trail. It traverses both rural and urban settings, passing several plaques that commemorate the area’s unique history and natural environment. Whether you are out for a leisurely stroll, a bike ride, rollerblading, snow shoeing, or bird watching, these trails will take you through kilometers of true beauty.
