Close to Toronto and Mississauga, less densely populated, great fall colours close to GTA
Off Highway 401, 403, 400 and QEW corridors
In a nutshell
A region of architectural resources and a great all season conservation area
Orangeville is located in south-central Ontario, the heart of Canada's engine of economic growth. Downtown Toronto lies only 80 kilometres south-east of Orangeville and over six million people live within a 300 kilometre (186 mile) radius of the Town.
Orangeville lies at the intersection of provincial highways 9, 10, 24, and the former 136, and is a forty minute drive from the major highways 400, 401, 403, 407, 410, and 427. This highway system gives immediate access to major markets, such as Toronto, Detroit, and Buffalo. In less than one hour, you or your product can be at Pearson International Airport.
Orangeville is serviced by the Orangeville-Brampton Railway which originates in Mississauga and provides full rail services to our industrial park.

The end of the summer signals fall fairs... a chance for communities to have a showing of their local produce, and see the best of the summer's growing. A chance for artistic endeavours to be shown off... for children to show their best art work. A time for livestock breeders to compare their best with others in the region.
The Orangeville Fair ended on Monday Sept 1st (Labour Day)... I went to see my cousin and her husband show their Polled Hereford Cattle. Please see more pictures in my travelogue.

Luggage and bags: Bagpacks
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Clothing will depend upon season, but light water-resistant clothes in summer will come in handy. A rain coat may also come in handy.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You may need painkillers after a hectic day of hiking and enjoying other activities in the park. Also, I recommend carrying hand sanitizer, insect repellent, sun screens, and wet wipes.
Photo Equipment: I highly recommend a water resistant camera. Keep an eye on the lens. You got to have lens cleaning equipment with you.
Miscellaneous: Carry loads of water bottles, sun shades and caps to protect against wind and dust.

Experience hang gliding at High Perspective hang gliding school in Shelburne, Ontario about 30 minute drive north of Orangeville.
From a flat field, the tandem glider is towed by winch to a height of approximately 2,000 feet. All I had to do was enjoy the ride, while my tandem instructor managed the tow rope and steered the glider to a gentle landing.
No running is involved as the glider has wheels. You can see a video of my flight at http://www.forkdelivery.ca/fly/flyhigh.htm (1.4mb)
Equipment: People of all abiilties can be accomodated in the hang glider. Guests are driven through the field to the glider launch area.
At certain times of the year there are grasshoppers (insects) in the grasses, so a closed shoe is a good idea. But you can go barefoot on the flight if you so desire ;)
