Sweet Summer Trail

Family picking fruit at a farm

Your summer adventure begins in Clarington!

Follow our charming rural roads along our Sweet Summer Trail to discover your favourite sweet treats and fun family experiences. From fresh pick-your-own fruit, the perfect ice cream cone and family fun on the farm, this self-guided summer tour will have everyone entertained and indulging while enjoying the sunshine.


Experience nature and enjoy a horseback ride at Kuzenko Stables through some scenic countryside (reservation required). Afterwards, stop by Deadly Grounds Coffee and try a specialty coffee or a gourmet doughnut. Looking to shop? Take your treat to the Courtice Flea Market and enjoy their eclectic vendors, including a farmers market.


Don’t miss the Enniskillen General Store for the biggest scoop of Kawartha Dairy ice cream, then head to the Enniskillen Conservation Area to watch the turtles roam and enjoy a 3-km hike along the boardwalk.


What kind of Sweet Summer Tour would this be if we didn’t include a stop at Tyrone Mills? Try their famous cider doughnuts and see the history behind this traditional water-powered mill. Continue on to Archibald’s Orchard & Estate Winery for wine tasting and beautiful views.


Sundaes, flurries, soft serve and more. Grab your favourite summer treat at The Cone Zone at Food Truck Alley in Hampton, then cool down at one of Ontario’s favourite waterparks, Cedar Park Resort. Splash and play in the pool and take a plunge down three large water slides.


There is nothing quite like freshly picked strawberries from Watson’s Farms. Once you’ve picked (and eaten) your fill, take a walk through Historic Downtown Bowmanville to enjoy shopping and a relaxing patio.


Pick up a delicious sweet treat from the Village Bake Shop and then head down to Buttercup Hollow, or perhaps you know it as the Orono Park. Swim in the outdoor pool, or just enjoy your treat while relaxing by the creek. Looking for an adventure? Visit Jungle Cat World Wildlife Park and get a unique opportunity to see and experience wild animals in an up-close environment.


Enjoy the flavours of locally produced honey and treats at Dare2Dream Farm, and take a tour of the bee hives while you’re there. Get adventurous at Ganaraska Treetop Trekking. Climb, swing and zip your way through aerial games and ziplines.


Another favourite local treat – blueberries. Lucky for you, we have Wilmot Orchards. Pick your own blueberries and enjoy blueberry-flavoured treats at the café. Afterwards, drive through downtown Newcastle, past the patios and shops, to the Port of Newcastle Marina and enjoy the beautiful lakefront and trails.


Discover the Newtonville General Store & Cafe and indulge in their giant Kawartha Dairy ice cream cones, or their locally famous hamburger. Just down the way is Haute Goat Farm, where you can get up close and friendly with goats, alpacas and horses. Don’t forget to try their goat milk products.
