Great Stuff to do on Grey Road 2

Fall is one of our favourite times to get out and about especially on road trips that overlook the Beaver Valley.  It’s a gorgeous and delicious time to experience all things fall with the beautiful colours and delicious flavours of the season.  This time we decided to check out Grey Road 2. 

We started our drive by heading up Grey Road 19 which took us to Grey Road 2.  At the intersection we made a left hand turn, and just past Ice River Springs on your right you’ll see a little bridge that goes over the Upper Beaver River…right after that, hang a right into the parking area to find the Feversham Gorge.  If you click here we’ve included a link that describes in more detail the flora, fauna and type of hike – please note that proper hiking boots or shoes are required.   The hiking is trail is 1.9 Kilometres on the main trail and a great way to start the day. 

After our hike we checked out the little hamlet of Feversham…found a great new gift shop/emporium and stopped in at the General Store to buy a drink.

Then we were off to the Ravenna Country Market which is at the corner of Grey Road 2 and Grey Road 119.  Can’t say enough about how fabulous this place is.  Fantastic presses sandwiches, lots of gourmet to go frozen entrĂ©es, pies of all kinds, butter tarts galore and what I think is the best best best chocolate cake ever made in the world.  This is coming from a self-proclaimed chocoholic (that’s me).  Don’t let the unassuming packaging fool you with the 9” x 9” square foil pan. 

After lunch we decided a visit to Georgian Hills would be a great way to unwind and relax on their fabulous patio while sipping and overlooking the vineyards.

Next we were off to T&K Ferri Orchards (the T stands for Tom and the K stands for Karen) to grab some apples and they are incredible apples grown with what is referred to as a Super Spindle technique.  

What every you choose to do, we know you’ll love Grey Road 2.
