Once you are done following the Ice Cream Trail, get checked in at your hotel, the popular Best Western, right on the outskirts of Walkerton.

They offer many amenities, such as a heated indoor pool, fitness facility, free hot breakfast buffet, state of the art rooms and great customer service. When you’re ready for supper, take the 2-minute walk over to 519 Table and Pour, a brand new restaurant offering mouthwatering meals, a full bar menu and a billiards room. This restaurant is one you will not want to miss when you are visiting Walkerton. Spend the night on the comfortable beds at the Best Western and rejuvenate for the day ahead!

After enjoying the breakfast buffet at your hotel, throw on your bathing suits and get ready for a Sunday paddle! Call Cowan Canoe, an outfitter in Paisley, and they will help you with all you need to know about the Mighty Saugeen River. Their friendly staff will pick you up at your hotel, take you to the river access point, rent you canoes and pick you up at your final destination! Pack a lunch if you are planning to stay on the river all day, or finish your ride around lunchtime and head back in for lunch at Walker’s Landing, in downtown Walkerton. Spend the afternoon at Lobbies Park and The Saugeen River Trail, for some time in the great outdoors. Round your weekend off with supper on the way home in nearby Mildmay at Harley’s Pub and Perk. You’ll be left with a full stomach for the ride home! On the way home, start planning your next getaway to Bruce County! Thanks for visiting!
