  • Ontario’s finest. Come here for such a view you won’t forget for a while. Every summer, when there is nothing to do, many Ontarians come up to the amazing Bruce Peninsula to be shocked in awe of how beautiful a place could be! This is the place to contemplate on anything and a great place to have a date. Just don’t get too close to the waters.
  • One of the best winter hikes I’ve ever done. We listened to past reviewers, and rented snow shoes for an early March hike. Life saver!!! The hike was still challenging, but with the snow shoes, we didn’t hate life, and had energy to keep exploring. I saw plenty of sunken foot prints, some being two feet at least, so a little planning went a long way. The Bruce trail section did have open restrooms. If you don’t get snow shoes, at least bring crampons (shoe/boot spikes), they’ll make the hike less risky.
