The Wellington County Museum and Archives, a National Historic Site located along the Grand River directly across from the gorge, has a network of trails on its 53-acre property. Visitors can rent snowshoes for $5 per day to explore the museum’s trails, including the 1.5-kilometre Aboyne Trail that offers stunning views along the edge of the gorge and passes historic features such as a lime kiln, water pump and wind mill. Another trail circles a historic cemetery that is the final resting place of more than 200 residents of the 1877 former poor house in which the museum is located.

The museum also has one of the best toboggan hills in the area and maintains an outdoor rink that is open for free skating.
