Get to Know the Neighbourhood
Zoom around the map below to see 17 Martyn Drive’s central location. Golfers, you are just down the street from the Twin Creeks Golf Course (Formerly known as Wasaga Sands Golf and Country Club), and close to amenities such as the Superstore, the Ramblewood Medical Centre, the RecPlex, restaurants, schools and of course the world’s longest freshwater beach!
In mere minutes from your front door you are hiking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on the world-renowned trans-Canada Ganaraska Trail. This hidden gem winds through the fragile ancient parabolic sand dunes of Wasaga Beach Provincial Park, providing great views of the Nottawasaga River below. From there, the trail goes through the valley of McIntyre Creek – which is adjacent to Martyn Drive – and passes along quiet country roads to Smithdale, east of Glen Huron, where it connects with the Mad River section (51 kilometres long and suitable for novices.)
