Find gorgeous lake views with these four Adventure Passport Stops along the Lake Huron shoreline. Bring / rent a paddleboard, kayak, canoe or just bring your bathing suit for some extra fun as access to the water is a sure thing along this route.

The best part about this route is that you can start on either end and still end up with one of the best sunsets around. Ending in Oliphant will bring allow you to relax as the sunsets on a quiet beach known for its kiteboarding, shallow waters and private marina. On the other side of the route, with ending in Kincardine you get to experience the phantom piper or the Scottish Pipe Band – depending on which day you complete the route during the summer. Either way you start here’s how to get from point A to point D.

The two main roads you’ll need are Highway 21 and Bruce Road 13, with a few side roads in between. Starting in Oliphant, you’ll want to begin the day by starting at the Oliphant Government Dock – to the south of the washrooms. To find the beach head north on Shoreline Road and you’ll find the beach on the left, just before the paved road ends. For your next Adventure Passport Stop, head east on Oliphant Way until you reach Bruce Road 13, this you’ll follow right through Sauble Beach and into Southampton.

From here there are a few different ways to get there, but the most direct would be to take a right on Adelaide Street, a left onto Huron Street South and a right onto Beach Street. Follow Beach Street to the parking lot where you’ll find your first clue. Find your way back to Highway 21 and follow it south towards Port Elgin and you’ll see the next Passport stop just a minute or two down the road. The Hi-Berry sign stands listing all the fresh fruit and vegetables that are in stock and this is where you’ll find your next Passport box.

After you’ve loaded up at Hi-Berry, get back onto Highway 21 and take it south to Kincardine. Don’t forget to make the turn in Tiverton, to keep on the highway and once you’re in Kincardine turn right onto Durham Street and a final left onto Queen Street. If you do go straight at Tiverton, don’t worry – just turn on Bruce Road 23 and it will take you right to your next stop!
