The Village of GOODERHAM
Gooderham is at the centre of the southernmost system of Crown land ATV trails in Ontario. ATVers are right in the legendary “5-Points” system of trails, just a 20 minute ATV ride from the treacherous Greens Mountain. A few minutes to the north is the famous “Goat Trail” which connects with both the “Hillbilly Trail” and the “Bark Lake Trail” including one of Haliburton County’s favourite ATV destinations, the Bark Lake beach. To the west is the scenic Victoria railtrail, which provides ATV access to many Central Ontario towns, notably Haliburton to the north, and Kinmount, Fenelon Falls, and Lindsay to the south.
Since the village of Gooderham is somewhat remote from Ontario's "traditional" touristy attractions, the area remains as one of the province's southern-most undeveloped regions. Despite being the centre of one of the most extensive hiking, geocaching, snowmobile, and ATV trail systems within only 2 hours of the GTA, Gooderham is a somewhat economically "challenged" town. So visitors can expect to be welcomed with old-time hospitality at any of the nearby businesses of Gooderham, Wilberforce, Irondale or Kinmount.
