The Natural Path is a unique, one or two day rural adventure developed by Grand Experiences with Heart’s Content Organic Farm. Experienced Interpretive Guides lead you cycling along the Trans Canada Trail passing by fields, farms and forests as you take in the natural countryside. Stop along the trail and tour an artisanal pottery studio located on the trail. Handpicked stops along the way will indulge the nature lover, inspire the artist, feed the foodie! Reach Heart’s Content Organic Farm located right on the trail where Richard and Ella will greet you with a warm welcome, an educational farm experience, and for those taking the 2 day excursion, a comfortable farm stay, sleeping in tents under the stars, or staying in suites. Before you leave, be sure to participate on a guided plant walk to learn about edible and medicinal herbs. At the end of the day’s ride, treat yourself to a pint at a local micro-craft brewing (Steel Wheel Brewery or Bell City Brewery), a delicious reward after a hard day’s cycle. For the 2 day trip, wake up bright and early to gather eggs to prepare your own breakfast on the farm where you can eat in the peace and quiet of the countryside. After you’re fueled up, get ready to continue cycling down the trail to Brantford to experience the Mohawk Chapel. Our interpretive guides will share the historical significance of the historic 18th century church and its connections with the local First Nations community. Continue to the Grand River and launch in majestic 12 person Voyageur Canoes to experience an adventure along the Grand’s legendary Oxbow.
