Outdoor Enthusiasts

If you are looking to spend a few days outdoors, you can certainly find a plethora of areas to explore right here in Windsor Essex.  Either by foot or by bike, spend the day on one of the numerous nature trails and boardwalks – end up near the water for some beach time or perhaps a kayak ride.  Grab fresh Lake Erie perch while in Kingsville or Leamington before hitting the links or visiting one of the local EPIC wineries.

Point Pelee National Park - Trails & Beach

Situated at the southern extreme of mainland Canada, Point Pelee National Park is a tiny sanctuary supporting a mosaic of habitats from jungle-like forest to lush wetlands to open savannah. Bike the 4.5 km trail taking you deep into the forest, or walk the boardwalk out onto one of the largest freshwater marshes left on the Great Lakes.

Kingsville Golf & Country Club

Kingsville Golf and Country Club is a championship quality course, offering 27 holes inundated with trees, traps, hills, water and wildlife. The course is made up of three unique nines; Red, White & Gold.

Chrysler Canada Greenway Trail

Great for biking, hiking, birding, cross country, skiing and more. The 50-kilometre Chrysler Canada Greenway travels through Essex County. This nature trail comprises the southernmost link of the Trans Canada Trail.

Hillman Marsh Conservation Area

A birding trail borders 87 acres of unique Shorebird Habitat where water levels are actively managed to create mudflats, providing outstanding viewing opportunities. The nature centre has educational displays about flora and fauna typical to the region and the area is a great place for hiking, biking, picnicking, canoeing & kayaking, bird watching, fishing, swimming, and in the winter months, skiing.
