Headwaters: Where Ontario gets real
A mere 45 minutes north of Toronto, Headwaters is the rural communities of Caledon, Dufferin County, Erin, Mono and Shelburne and their postcard-perfect, activity-filled towns, hamlets and nature.
Pick your own food, fish and canoe our unspoiled lakes, bike or hike the Bruce Trail, tour artists’ home studios, ski our trails and resorts, delight in an authentic country fair, fall asleep to the sound of a waterfall — or just drive our endless rolling hills and marvel at our pastoral farmlands, autumn symphony of colour and sparkling winter vistas.
Why drive for hours to enjoy a natural, horse-and-country day trip or getaway, when you can just head up to Headwaters: Where Ontario gets real.
