The Ganaraska Trail covers over 500 km of trail perfect for walking, snow shoeing and cross country skiing. In Orillia, the trail begins in Ramara, it skits the shore of Lake Couchiching and runs along the Lightfoot Trail system through the City of Orillia where it runs south on the Mariposa Trial to Woodland Avenue on the south edge of the City of Orillia. It then runs west along Woodland Avenue to Memorial Avenue then south to where it crosses highway 11 at Forest Home. The trail runs through Scout Valley on the west side of highway 11 and north of the parking lot on Old Barrie Road. It then runs east along Old Barrie Road to Ruby on Line 12 of Oro-Medonte then north for a short distance on Line 12 then east through fields and woods. There is some road walking between the Scout Valley Parking lot on Old Barrie Road and Line 12 but the trail through Scout Valley is picturesque and suitable for novices.
