Miller Lake has sheltered beaches, swimming and boating along its shoreline. Its water warms up quickly in summer and it has some of the safest swimming available for children. Boaters may use the public boat launch at 164 Miller Lake Shore Road or the picnic area at the end of Maple Drive. Boat rentals, camping and cottage accommodations are also available along the lake. Local artisans demonstrate their crafts at studios where visitors can discover unusual treasures.
Rare plant habitats with exquisite wildflowers such as Lakeside daisies and Dwarf Lake irises can be found at Bruce Alvar Nature Reserve, on Hwy 6 a half-kilometre north of Dyer’s Bay Rd. The best season for viewing flowers is May to mid-June.
The peninsula’s newest trail system is Lindsay Tract, located at 4025 Hwy 6, just north of Bury Rd. The free, public trails are built and maintained by Bruce County in a forest reserve that includes limestone alvars, dune ridges and small lakes. Eight kilometres of trails vary from easy to difficult with a substantial amount of gnarly rock to negotiate.
