Ryde Barn Quilt Trail

The Road to Ryde

ryde-driving-tour

Ryde is a formerly independent township that was incorporated in 1879, but is now amalgamated into the Town of Gravenhurst.

Ontario's newest barn quilt trail is located in Ryde Township which was incorporated in 1879, but is now amalgamated into the Town of Gravenhurst. The quilts were erected to commemorate 135 years of settlement in Ryde. Some buildings are historic, some are new; all have a story to share.

This website is central to the promotion of the trail. Please share it with friends and family and encourage them to turn off Highway 11, follow the Doe Lake Road, and visit Ryde's Barn Quilt Trail. It is a paved loop of road, (with three short spurs) that will take about 40 minutes of driving time. Take time to "stop and smell the roses" and get a sense of the geographical, social and cultural context in which the quilts have been placed.
