Point Grondine Park
A First Nation owned and operated recreational park, Point Grondine has over 7,000 hectares of scenic natural wilderness landscape, old growth pine forest, stunning river vistas and eight interior lakes to explore. The picturesque water trails flowing along the coast of Georgian Bay invite you to many canoe routes, hiking trails and backcountry campsites located throughout the interior of the Park. Hike, canoe or sea kayak along the traditional routes of the Anishnaabek people and be ready to be captivated by this historic and majestic place.
The trailhead is ideally situated off of Killarney highway 637 nestled between the Killarney and French River Provincial Parks; it is in the northern terminus of the Georgian Bay Coast Trail, a sustainable world-class hiking trail in the spectacular landscape of the UNESCO Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve. The Georgian Bay Coast Trail is dedicated to providing an unforgettable experience in a world-renowned location and will provide hikers with 200 km of rugged coast to explore. Be ready to get your feet wet as the trail will have limited infrastructure and be a one of a kind adventure – you will explore Georgian Bay and its beauty one step at a time!
Throughout the summer months you can explore the park through Authentic Aboriginal Experiences that connect you to the territory of its original descendants. The park is accessible through mandatory park permits and can be purchased online at www.grondinepark.com or by calling 1-705-859-3477.
