A perfect destination for walking and jogging while enjoying the mother nature. All trails we explored were well maintained? clean and safe/ Pay attention to difficulty of each before choosing, though. Also - come early and parking lot is usually full by 11 am, so you will be turned away.

We where on our way to Tobermory and enjoyed the scenery of The National Park. If you take the coastal route, you'll see some great views over Georgian Bay. Really worth going there.

The Visitor Center is a must visit, a great way to expand your experience of the area and kill a rainy day. The Bruce Trail is great for all levels of hikers.

While not as dramatic as Banff or even nearby Killarney, the turquoise waters are certainly impressive.

We were lucky with the weather, for December it was so warm! We found the hiking trails very easy around the grotto and up to lookout point. The park was virtually deserted and I would recommend coming in the cooler months! It was definitely worth the 4 hour drive from Toronto
