Take A Drive: County Road 30

Ready to take a drive? We’ve come up with a few ideas to help you enjoy the wide-open spaces our region is known for. Hop in your car and and enjoy the slow, winding roads of the country, experience our natural attractions, meet local business owners and enjoy some great bites along the way!

 

County Road 30

From Highway-401, #30 can take you down a quick, tree-lined journey into downtown Brighton. Head north, however, and you’ll find yourself in the rolling Northumberland Hills, where you’ll eventually run into the Trent River.

Coates Orchards

We often think of apples as a fall treat, but some varieties are ready starting mid-July! Paul and Judy Coates grow 15 varieties of apples and three types of pears, and plenty of other seasonal fruits and vegetables for a delicious hiking snack.

639 County Road 30, Brighton

Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area

Need some space? 179 hectares (or 441 acres) await you here! There are 17 km of trails, ranging in difficulty from this-isn’t-so-bad to oh-I’m-going-to-have-blisters-tomorrow. Jokes aside, there are plenty of natural treasures to discover here for beginners, families and more advanced hikers and cyclists.

1331 Pinewood School Road, off Loomis Road

NOTE FROM LOWER TRENT CONSERVATION: Access from Goodrich Road has been closed. Loomis Road will become the new access (off County Road 30) to the Conservation Area.

Tin Roof Dairy Bar

Nothing hits the spot after a hot afternoon of hiking like a towering cone of ice cream! The Quick Brown Fox, a paradise of artist supplies, is now also home to the Tin Roof Dairy Bar. Just pop down the alley behind QBF to get your ice cream fix.

21 Prince Edward Street, Brighton
