CYCLE the tour
Quiet paved roads and scenic, hard-packed trails mark the 6-kilometre Salmon Tour loop from the Owen Sound harbour to Harrison Park and back. This is a family-friendly route appropriate for all ages with several stops and resting points along the way, including the mill dam and fish ladder, where you can watch the salmon spawning. Bring your own bike or rent one from Bikeface Cycling in downtown Owen Sound. Pack a lunch and make a day of it!
More experienced or adventurous cyclists can continue on the route to the Grey-Sauble Conservation spawning grounds and Inglis Falls, roughly 3 km south of Harrison Park. There are two steep hills that might challenge a novice cyclist – one just outside Harrison Park heading up to Greenwood Cemetery and the other on Inglis Falls Road as you approach the falls.
Bike lock-ups are available at the Visitor Information Centre, the Farmer's Market, and the Grey-Sauble Conservation administration office.
