Secret crevasses, rocky pitches, forested trails and a town with craft beer nearby. Sounds like the perfect place to spend an afternoon hiking to us.
tuji Bri Botsford thought so too, which is why she wanted us to join her on her hike along the Nottawasaga Bluffs portion of the world famous Bruce Trail near Toronto, Ontario. Here’s your guide to one of her favourite trails to wander on.
To get to Nottawasaga Bluffs Lookout from Toronto, take the Gardiner Expressway West to the 427 to the 410 North. Continue up Hwy 10 then turn right on Dufferin Road 124 and follow the signs. The main trail here is the Bruce trail and it’s really well marked but there are a whole heap of fun side trails to explore. They’re really well marked and worth a wander because they lead to all kinds of interesting rock formations, caverns and creeks. The hike is not strenuous but be sure to wear proper footwear because it can be a bit rocky and steep in places. Oh, and leave the cell phone parked because you’re going to want to use your hands – there just might be a little bit of scrambling if you pick the right trail.
