The reason we vacationed in the Bruce Peninsula was to hike the Bruce Trail. Need good hiking boots. Numerous challenging spots. Rocky in many places. Views fantastic.

What a beautiful area. We visited to see the orchids at the Orchid Festival. Weather was cool but the scenery exceptional.

Hiking from Little Cove to Overhanging point, one way would take a half day. I'd give yourself 3-5 hours one way. Keep in mind that hiking along the Bruce trail and at these distances requires some preparedness and hiking... More
