Whooooooooooah! Stay Safe Alert!

People are eager to get outside and start exploring all the great things to do in YDH. But don't forget....it's still important to stay safe while you are having fun supporting our local businesses and communities.

If you are lucky enough to live in YDH (we are biased) or you want to come for a visit, we've got some great ideas for you to get active outside, explore your inner artist, learn something new and celebrate this awesome season...virtually or in-person. Please note that many conservation parks and trails are over capacity, so ensure you pre-book your visit or even better...step off the beaten path and find discover a new terrain to enjoy.

We look forward to seeing you!

Here you’ll find some of the best mountain and fat biking in Ontario and breath-taking views.  As well as biking there are trails for Cross-Country skiing and snowshoeing for beginner, intermediate and hard core. Don’t forget your skates, right in front of the main lodge you’ll find a beautiful rink for your loops, lutzes and axels.

Head over to the new Pine River Café in the Main Lodge to warm up with delicious chilies and soups before your next loop around the trails.

After all that fresh air and exercise, chances are you’ll be too tired to cook. Drive 10 minutes south to Maple Grove Farm and stock up on delicious savory and sweet pies, and other prepared foods. This is also a great time to stock up on meat and pantry items. Try their honey mustard salad dressing – you will not be disappointed.
