The Township of Wellington North
The Township of Wellington North invites you to Simply Explore... An area that encompasses walking trails, cycling and birding trails plus a new horticulture trail, all winding through quaint tranquil vistas you can discover on your own self-guided tour. But of all the trails, The Butter Tart TrailTM is one of the most popular. Which is hardly surprising. Who doesn't like a rich, decadently sinful butter tart, and on this self-guided road tour, there are at least a dozen varities you'll come across. There are also other inventions you may encounter: doggy butter tart treats, pottery trays in homage to the butter tart and scents inspired by them. You may even chance upon a butter tart sundae. It's an exploration of al things 'butter tart' in one variation or another.
It's also about the experience, just for you. Unique gift stores, original artwork and premiere fashion destinations dot the landscape of Wellington North. It's farm-fresh, farm gate produce. It's refined rustic fare, the country market you find just around the corner and the greenhouses and garden centres that prevail. It's a celebration of nature where unique shops and home cooking are as much a part of the experience as the bird song and flowers that surround you.
Also awaiting you in Wellington North is one of the top 100 Festivals in Ontario - the three-day Mount Forest Fireworks Festival, and other signature events such as Arthur's Art in the Street, and traditional fall fairs and Christmas parades. How sweet is that?
