Features -none-

This section of Bruce Trail is on public land and is allowed for multiple uses including biking. Other sections may fall under different rules, and each section need to be carefully researched with respect to trail closures and owner restrictions.

Description

This is the Bruce Trail, a long-distance hiking trail marked with white painted blazes.

This section of the trail travels the Pretty River Provincial Park from end-to-end, and top-to-bottom.

Most parts of the trail are moderately technical and can have a lot of steep sections. The flatter cliff-side section is one of the more rock-strewn pieces of trail in the park. Only true rock fiends will enjoy this section.

Along this trail, you may end up in some hike-a-bike sections, but the views are spectacular. Look for Georgian Bay, The Pretty River, and Wasaga Beach. In summer, watch turkey vultures wheeling in the sky - you can often find yourself almost a wingtip away from a giant bird. But watch the drop!

Note that this trail is multi-use and it sees all kinds of non-bike traffic. Expect to encounter other people. Be on your best behavior and yield to hikers.
