Let's spend a day in the fabulous Ontario outdoors, and enjoy a hiking adventure in the company of other outdoor enthusiasts from all over the GTA!
Our scenic adventure will take us along a well-marked section of the world-renowned Bruce Trail, from Rattlesnake Point to picturesque Crawford Lake. This hike along the edge of the escarpment is peaceful and not too challenging. The views are really amazing and add to the enjoyment of the outing. At the beginning of the trail, at the southern most point of Rattlesnake Point, there is a staircase that allows one to climb down to the base of the escarpment.
Further highlights of this excursion include the Crawford Lake Visitors Centre and the 15th-century Iroquoian village near the lake.
