We hiked along the Marr Lake trail, then along part of the Bruce Trail to the Grotto, then continued along the Bruce Trail to the Horse Lake trail and looped back to the trail heads. That circuit took us under 1.5 hours including photo stops. We really wished the hike would have lasted three or four times longer since it... More

I took the opportunity on a warm and sunny spring day to drive up to The Bruce Peninsula National park and hike a few of the trails. There was still some snow on the ground, but the trails were clearly marked. There weren't many others visiting the park, and I really only encountered them at the grotto. Having so few... More

Hike the Bruce trail or many other routes which take you to secluded beaches, historic lighthouses or to view wildlife. Tobermor doesn't open for tourists until May, but we still enjoyed.the scenery.... More

We visited the park during the winter holidays hoping to see Indian Head cove and the grotto covered in snow. The roads into the park are maintained, however only parking lot 2 is accessible as parking lot 1 (the closer one) is blocked off during the winter season. Therefore, we had to park at parking lot 2 and take the... More

The National Park admission is free for 2017. We have an annual membership because we have a second home on the Bruce Peninsula. We go to the Park Visitor Centre often. We take the grandchildren who love the exhibits and Bruce the stuffed black bear. There is a wheelchair accessible trail portion of the Bruce Trail adjacent to the visitor's... More

A great place to explore and go hiking. The Bay's water is gorgeous and the trails allow a lot of exploration and tons of photo opportunities.
