Bruce Trail Northern Terminus Cairn
June 14, 2006
We have hiked portions of the Bruce Trail mainly between Tobermory, Ontario and Lion's Head, Ontario on the Bruce Peninsula several times. We tend to focus on the trail portion that wanders through Bruce Peninsula National Park near the Cypress Lake Campground. The trail can be rather challenging in this area. The guys with kids in tow have hiked the trail from Tobermory to Cypress Lake Campground which is about a 15 km challenging hike that takes a good portion of the day. The Bruce Trail Northern Terminus Cairn is located on Bay Street overlooking Little Tug Harbour in the Village of Tobermory. The Bruce Trail is a hiking trail that follows Niagara Escarpment from Queenston to Tobermory in Ontario. The trail is approximately 800 km long and traverses in some spots over privately owned land and farmland in central and southern Ontario. The trail itself ranges from being quite challenging with a fair amount of climbing to areas of low, flat terrain. The southern terminus cairn is located in the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake in Queenston Heights Park.
