Shortcut

From here, catch the most breathtaking views of the Niagara Escarpment. And the good news is, if you're with little ones or with a stroller, there's a wide gravel path (Bruce Side Trail) which is a shortcut leading to the Brock Harris observation point in 10 minutes. From behind a solid, safe low wall, this belvedere offers a superb panorama. On a clear day, we can make out the CN Tower, 60 kilometres to the right. If you take young adventurers a bit left of the belvedere, you'll be able to access a few crevices. The two we explored were about 30 metres from the cliff. Their narrow opening sloped gently. Five metres down, their bottom was lined with large stones. Natural footbridges cross over these crevices and give access to the edge of the cliff (not for younger kids!). With children 7 years and older, I recommend you take the 2.3 km North Loop (the first trail to the left when you walk on the gravel path by the parking lot). Kids will love to spot the Bruce Trail's white blazes (two blazes on a tree means that there's a turn, the highest mark indicating which way to turn).
