Winter Walking on Ontario

by Gary McWilliams (aka Festival Nomad | aka Winterman)

When you take a winter walk in Ontario, you need to be careful!

At least, that’s my theory.

So, first, let’s take a look at a video that Judi (Scoop) and I made, see below!

When I refer to “be careful“, I am referring to walking outside, in the snow or ice.

There are many wonderful walking trails available in Ontario, but most are not set up for “normal” walking.

For example, in our area, there’s the Georgian Trail.

It’s okay for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. I guess these could be considered as a form of walking (your choice).

The type of winter walking I’m thinking about are the ones that are cleared. Yes, I am a wimp!

However, I do like to take a walk in the winter, especially with Judi.

In our area, especially in The Blue Mountains, there have a very good way of clearing and sanding the sidewalks.

There are other “clear” places to winter walk.

Unfortunately, the Beach is not one of them!


When we were living in Cobourg, we could go to Lang Pioneer Village Museum at Christmas, walk the village.

And, as a bonus, enjoy the Christmas carolers!

Now, we have closer places to enjoy “clearwinter walking. The Blue Mountain Village Resort is always a great place to walk and enjoy.

So, when you are out “Winter Walking“, make sure you take plenty of “selfies“! You will want to show your friends how much “fun” you are having!

As my father use to say and do, “go winter walking at the Mall“!
