Georgian Bay Coast Trail
In 2010, Wikwemikong Tourism initiated a partnership with the Georgian Bay Coast Trail Inc to develop up to 60 km of trail in the proposed Point Grondine Eco Park. The trail at Point Grondine will be the northern terminus of the Coast Trail which is proposed to eventually span up to 200 km along the coast of Georgian Bay from Point Grondine to Bayfield Inlet. The Georgian Bay Coast Trail is a community development project that will lead to job creation, natural and cultural heritage interpretation opportunities and economic development. The trail will be a pay per use trail system modeled after the West Coast Trail on Vancover Island which injects over 7 million dollars into the local economy.
