Travel from Toronto to Lions Head

We are from Australia and want to travel from Toronto to Lion's Head on 13th August and back to Toronto on 18th August. We have accommodation but want to know if you can get a bus or train? Not sure if we are game enough to hire a car!!!

Many thanks

Hi Nona;

There is no passenger train service to that area of the province, and bus service will only get you as far as Owen Sound.

The bus ride is between 4 hours and 9 hours, depending on the time of departure from Toronto.

I believe that you would then need to take a taxi the remaining 40 miles / 65 km.

Leaving from Owen Sound on the 18th, you only have two departures, at noon and 8:10 pm.


A rental car would provide you with the greatest flexibility.

Best Regards

There is ground transportation from Pearson Airport to Owen Sound with a few more options.......You could always rent a car in Owen Sound which would allow you to have more freedom in Lion's Head without the traffic issues in Toronto....

There is also a service from Toronto, leaving Aug 12 and returning Aug 18. It's called Parkbus.


I am also looking to head up to lions head on aug 12 or 13. If you find any good way to go, like a ride share or something, would you post it here? Maybe there is a way to contact each other so I could help contribute to the ride share costs.
