Scenic Viewpoint
“The famous Bruce Peninsula Grotto is one of the most visited natural attractions in Ontario. And it has become so popular in the summer months that the Park has created timed slots for visiting this area of the Park. But don’t let this dissuade you. Let it inspire you to hike to the Grotto in spring, fall or winter – all are equally impressive. But, how do you get to the Grotto? The best hiking route to the Grotto starts with the Cyprus Lake Trail. It’s calm and beautiful. Then take the Georgian Bay Trail to Indian Cove. Here you’ll begin a stunning stretch of scenic views of the crystal clear waters of the Bay. But the trail then becomes a bit of a scramble over rocks as you continue along the coast by way of the Bruce Trail. Not too far past Indian Cove you’ll find yourself overlooking a magical sea cave filled with blue-green waters. In the summer many climb down to swim in the cave. This is NOT advised as the tide and current can change quickly. And don’t let this be your finally stop before heading back. Continue along to Bolder Beach via the Bruce Trail and up the other side of the beach. Here you’ll find MORE epic views as well as Overhanging Point. After you’ve wrapped up your hiking along the Bruce Trail you can return back to your starting point via Marr Lake Trail.”

Park
“Halfway up the Peninsula is a charming little village that is home to my favourite place for hiking on the Bruce Peninsula. At the edge of town you’ll find Lion’s Head Provincial Park. This 500 hectare park is home to one of the oldest and least disturbed forest ecosystems in North America. This is a great park for bird enthusiasts as well as view seekers. You’ll find a plethora of bird species throughout the park – especially in the spring. But what brings many here are the countless clifftop views of Georgian Bay and the Bruce Peninsula coastline. It’s also home to potholes – and I’m not talking about those pesky road hazards. These are geological potholes that were created and carved out of the rock by water after the last ice age. Trails through the park include the Bruce Trail and its side trails. But be mindful as, with any hiking on the Niagara Escarpment, the trails are very rugged, with roots, rocks, and sometimes rock scrambles. You can easily spend over 5 hours hiking through Lion’s Head Provincial Park. But the average is around 3 hours, from trailhead to a few of the epic views, and back.”
