Sightseeing

Minimum half day required for this trip but could work with a late afternoon/dinner visit to Tobermory. The Grotto is about a 1km walk with a very smooth trail from parking. The Grotto is a very “Mediterranean-like” rock beach with high and low points for jumping into Georgian Bay. There is absolutely beautiful and great hiking along Georgian Bay. Really worth the visit; better is it is a sunny and warm day. Tip – if Cyprus Lake is too busy and you can not get in, drive back to Half-Way Log Dump access – this area on the Bruce Trail / Georgian Bay has some of the most beautiful rock formations and is great for swimming. You might need to reverse a spot online before heading to the provincial park on their website.
