Up the Lion's Back

Starting on November 17, 2018 9:00 am

Immerse yourself in autumn splendour on an eco-adventure in the heart of the Lion’s Head Provincial Nature Reserve. This seasonally themed, interpreted expedition takes you to jaw dropping panoramas atop the Lion’s Head cliffs. This forest hike will explore paths less travelled as hidden trails weave you through scarred glacial landscapes before linking with the popular Bruce Trail. Here the trail snakes along the towering escarpment edge overlooking White Bluff in the distance, and the ultramarine waters of Georgian Bay 200 feet below.


Take advantage of autumn’s cooler bug free day days for an experience featuring glacial potholes, blankets of ferns, other rare plants and more all under a canopy of vibrant reds, oranges and yellows. The Peninsula is less crowded this time of year and most locals will claim the fall to be their favourite season. This hike is ideal for nature photographers, curious explorers, amateur mushroom hunters, fans of fall colours, or those just seeking a break from the everyday!

  • post glacial history
