Heritage Trail

History and Heritage in a Historic Village

Follow the footsteps of the pioneers around the historic village. Meander along Bayfield’s tree lined Main Street until you reach the breathtaking Lake Huron lookout at Pioneer Park.

Descend the stairs to the sandy beach and follow the shoreline and head north toward the largest and most scenic recreational boat harbour on Lake Huron’s east coast. If the time is right, you may see one of the last fishing fleets on Lake Huron returning home with their catch. The contact for this trail is the Bayfield River Valley Trail Association.
