“Be sure you have the parking fee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Wonderful hiking in this park that straddles the Bruce Trail. The parking lot is great. Pit toilets and picnic tables are handy nearby. But, be sure you check the parking fee - $11 in coins when we visited.

“A nice place to hike in the spring”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

We are not experienced hikers. There are several trails of various lengths (2 km to much longer) that are nice to walk through. In many cases, you are walking through treed areas. In some cases, you are near cliffs. Some points to note:
1 - Although their map and directions appears to show a main entrance on the east side (that we used), there are actually several entrances. If you are after a certain trail, you may want to consider where you want to park.
2 - Parking tickets must be purchased using coins only when we were there (loonies and toonies). $11 for the day or $5 for 4 hours.

Overall, we had a very nice time for a few hours.

“Best hike this year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

My daughter and her husband introduced us to this park last week. We arrived in the parking lot (on route 3) and the parking meter was broken, so we didn't have to pay (someone had taped a sign to the machine). If it had been working, I think we would have to pay $11 in coins ... so be prepared!

Once we hit the trail, we were treated to excellent hiking trails up and down the canyon. After scaling the eastern side of the canyon on a rough trail (bring good footwear) we stayed near the cliff and came upon a Turkey Vulture sitting on the edge. It flew off, but we were treated to about a dozen vultures circling around the canyon, and had a nice view of the cliffs on the opposite side. Continuing south, we were in shade most of the time (which was good since it was hot), and we eventually descended at the south end to a small lake. Ascending on the western side, we proceeded north but took a wrong turn and had to backtrack. Remember to follow the signs for the Canyon Rim trail. At the north end, there is a scenic lookout. Along the way, we met many hikers and several people on horseback. It was a very pleasant 3 hour (and 9km) hike, although our bodies felt life the had been hit by trucks for the next day. Next time, we'll probably cut it off at 2 hours.

Bring plenty of water. The toilets are at the parking lot, and I didn't see any others, but due to the heat, you didn't need them anyway.

“Mono”

Great place - the basement is scary from a how to get out incase of a fire scenario. Upstairs - one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I have ever enjoyed
