East Kent Barn Quilt Trail

Your drive along the winding roads along Highway 3 and then towards the 401 will take you through the villages of Morpeth, Ridgetown and Highgate, with views of Lake Erie often plentiful. The East Kent Trail features nine barn quilts to stop and gaze at. You will be provided with glimpse into the lives of pioneering families, highlighting sheep farmers, gardeners, millwrights, and Scottish heritage along this trail. Stops along the way may include one at Greenview Aviaries Park & Zoo with the family or the Crazy 8 Barn for their renowned butter tarts, Shaws Ice Cream treats and boutique shopping. You may even head into Ridgetown to fuel up for the drive, and if you do, a stop at Pinnell's Bakery is highly recommended. "Home of the Honey Dipped Donut", you will also find a great selection of freshly baked breads, sweet treats and even savoury options like cabbage rolls and meat pies.
