Norfolk County has several driving or cycling routes to explore.
In January 2013, Ben Lovett and Winston Marshall of Mumford & Sons visited Norfolk County to determine if our community was a good place to hold a Gentlemen of the Road Stopover. Our local folks showed them around, rolled out the Norfolk County hospitality, and enjoyed spending time with these remarkable fellows and their friends and colleagues. We hope you will walk in their footsteps any time you visit Norfolk County.
This route for a getaway in beautiful Norfolk County will appeal to fans of Mumford & Sons, Rick Danko and The Band, and other who enjoy rural Ontario. It features the places visited by Mumford & Sons when they visited Norfolk County earlier this year, as well as the locations of former dance halls that featured Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Ronnie Hawkins, Chubby Checker, Louis Armstrong and Rush between the 1950s and 1970s.
This route appeals to outdoorsy types and families, featuring Gopher Dunes, Sand Hill Park and Deer Creek Conservation Area. Plus canoeing, camping, dirt bikes, roadside farm markets, wind turbines, and more. Includes Courtland, Langton, Clear Creek, Walsingham and other small hamlets in the western area of Norfolk County.
