Photo Essay: Bruce Peninsula National Park, Ontario

Share

As it happens with most of us that travel, there end up being a lot of photos that never get used. I have hundreds of such photos. So on weekends as time permits I will showcase some of the more interesting photos that never made it into a blog post.

If you’re in the Toronto area this summer and have a weekend on your hands, make your way 289 kilometers northwest of the city and visit Bruce Peninsula National Park. Located at the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula, between Lake Huron and the Georgian Bay, the park offers wonderful hiking and backpacking possibilities.

The Bruce Trail, Canada’s longest marked hiking trail jogs for 21 km (13.1 mi) through Bruce Peninsula National Park. Exceptional cliff top scenery, rugged trails, caves, crystal clear Caribbean coloured blue water, ancient cedar trees, rare orchids and white stone beaches are some of what you can expect to see.

The photos below are all taken along the Bruce Trail.
