The Bruce Trail Visitors Center

The Bruce Trail is a fabulous foot trail made up of over 1000km of main and side trails that run along the Niagara Escarpment from Niagara Falls in the south, to Tobermory in the North. A section of the trail runs fairly close by our home, and the boys love exploring their own little part of something so big. At the end (or beginning?) of the trail in Tobermory there is a great visitors center that houses displays on the local environment, trails, aboriginal culture, marine park, and wildlife. There is also a great look out tower that offers views of the sea of trees that covers the tip of the peninsula. The staff have lots of knowledge to share, and helped the boys and I to identify a leech that we saw at Cyprus lake (did you know that they can stretch out to be almost a foot long, and orange?!?!) and shared our excitement at other wildlife sightings. Here are a few pics.
