A photographic tour of our hike along the Bruce Trail from Barrow Bay to Lion’s Head and back again. 20km over two days.
The start of the hike at Lion’s Head Provincial Nature Reserve.
The Trail Begins Here
The Forest on the West side of the Trail
Our first view of the bay.
A tree whose roots are lifting to expose the rock below
A rocky Forest floor
Lots of opportunity to see Georgian Bay
Looks like Poison Ivy
Oh look, water
Looks like McKays Harbour and camp down there
At Camp. 10km under the belt
The view from our camp site. The shine is the sun on the water.
When you emerge from the trees you are at the beach.
Remember the photo from on top of the hill where we saw camp? There is the hill over there…
Well that’s rustic
Hmmm…thats the trail to the toilet?
yep, its a wooden box in the woods
Day 2. Neat rocks through here
The giant rock we had to walk under
Getting tired of seeing water yet?
Don’t look down
Look at that cliff
Looking right from the outcrop
Up a rocky hill. It looked more impressive in person
Mostly cliff with a smidgen of water
Same cliff, further along the trail. I think this was the cliff that someone was climbing up. We stopped to have lunch and this was the view.
There you go looking down the cliff again
Looking left along the cliff
Still looking to the right, but down a little more
Starting to head inland, away from the cliff
This was a cave in the rock, it is a 10,000 year old pothole…guess thats a car eating pot hole
Another pothole, seen from the top. Not near as big as the last one.
Heading through the forest now, the terrain sure is different here
We followed a side trail that was just recently opened. You really need to watch for the blazes on a trail like this one!
It looks like a chocolate chip cookie, but somehow I don’t think it will taste like one…
Nope, no fairies
The last place we stopped for a snack.
Another 2 km and we were back at the car and on our way back to civilization.
