The anticipation of Canada’s delicious iconic maple syrup is palpable as the first sign of spring. To celebrate, Stratford Tourism Alliance presents the Savour Stratford Maple Trail adventure. This sweet self-guided tasting tour offers a unique maple tasting experience during March and April. 

Culinary artisans invite you to sample their delicious maple creations along our self-guided trail in Stratford’s downtown heritage district and at the source, McCully’s Hill Farm. Among the thirteen choices are aged maple balsamic vinegar, a maple sundae, luscious creamy fudge, maple creams wrapped in chocolate, maple cupcakes, maple frozen yogurt, maple tea and coffee and traditional hand-poured maple sugar candy.  Of course, no maple trail would be complete without local maple syrup direct from the sugar shack. Unexpected surprises on the trail are opportunities to relax with maple including essential oil maple soap, a maple foot soak while sipping maple tea and nibbling maple cookies, and a fine restaurant stop for a special maple dessert.

“We can’t wait to taste the first maple syrup of the season drizzled over ice cream, dripping from a stack of pancakes or made into delicious tasty treats. The Maple Trail invites us to explore the many tastes of maple syrup presented in different ways from yummy desserts to pampering experiences. The Maple Trail is only available until the end of April, so don’t miss out on our taste of spring,” says Cathy Rehberg, marketing manager for Stratford Tourism Alliance.
