Art in the Hills
Experience Art in the Hills – just steps outside Toronto’s back door!

Located just 45 minutes north of Toronto lies the scenic Hills of Headwaters region – home to a vibrant and inspired arts community!

Known for rolling hills, deep valleys, spectacular fall colours and the unique headwaters of four major river systems, it seems our exciting landscape has stirred the artist soul.

In the Hills of Headwaters there are over 200 artists working in every media imaginable. Painters, potters, glassblowers, woodcarvers, weavers, sculptors and jewellers all create here – in styles that range from classical to contemporary to avant-garde!

Golf in the Hills
Step outside Toronto's back door and discover Golf in the Hills!

Just a short hour’s drive north of Toronto, you’ll find the Niagara Escarpment’s undulating terrain creates challenges for golfers at all levels. The varying elevations and spectacular views are typical of the courses of The Hills of Headwaters. Five of the region’s premier courses have joined together to create the Headwaters Golf Trail in 2011.

Spectacular Fall Colours

The Hills of Headwaters, just steps outside Toronto’s back door, is replete with some truly wonderful places to visit – settlements such as Erin, Hockley Village, Belfountain, Shelburne, Bolton and Orangeville boast some fabulous events, things to see and people to meet. The routes to them all are well maintained and easy to find. And the fall colours that provide the backdrop are indeed spectacular. With our many country roads and the rolling terrain provided by the Niagara Escarpment any back-road route will deliver an impressive fall show.

These are the Hills of Headwaters, part of the greenbelt... our living countryside. Here you can plant your bare feet on the earth. And when you dine the greens in your salad were picked this morning... the vegetables are from that farm over there... the berries in dessert grow wild along the fencelines.
