Bruce Peninsula, a large peninsula in Lake Huron, was the second stop of our trip through Ontario. The most famous sites are the Bruce Trail, a 782-kilometer trail leading to the Niagara Peninsula, and Flowerpot Island, where you can see funny flowerpot-shaped rock formations. Shipwrecks can also be found in the waters around the village of Tobermory. We had one day at our disposal on Bruce Peninsula, a day when unfortunately, I wasn’t very fit. Nevertheless, we made three short hikes, which I’m sharing in this article.
Hiking to Indian Head Cove
Hiking part of Bruce Trail
We planned to hike all day on this famous long distance trail, but I wasn’t in good shape, so we only hiked a small part of the trail. We walk along Rush Cove Side Trail through the forest and return on Bruce Trail along the coast, on rocky cliffs and pebble beaches. This short loop gives a good impression of the surroundings. There were lots of clouds, but even on a cloudy day, the waters of Georgian Bay had a beautiful light blue color. You can even see the bottom of the lake made of flat stones.
Bruce Peninsula is a very large area full of natural beauty. Nature lovers will undoubtedly love the rocky cliffs, the idyllic beaches with crystal clear waters and the wooded surroundings. And you can wander endlessly on Bruce Trail and on its side trails. If you are planning a trip to Ontario, don’t forget to visit this beautiful peninsula.
