Ardagh Bluffs Trails
One of the largest trail systems in the city of Barrie, the Ardagh Bluffs offers acres and acres of forest, most of it in a valley away from the noise of the roadway. Getting to the main trail system requires walking down a steep path (or staircase, depending where you enter) and, of course, we have to come back up afterwards. Across from the trails is a little community park with an open field and tree-lined pathway, for diversity in backgrounds.
Best Season to Visit: Year-round, though I do love it in the winter.
