Last Sunday I checked off an item on my Brock Bucket List and went for a hike on the Bruce Trail. The website brucetrail.org describes the trail as “Canada’s oldest and longest footpath [which] provides the only continuous public access to the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.  It is one of only fifteen such reserves in all of Canada.” Sounds pretty appealing, right?

I love nature and I love hiking so I thought I’d give it a shot. I will admit, I got lost once, but it was worth it! I got some fresh air, a great workout, and saw lots of wildlife. Here are some pictures I took:



If you love the outdoors as much as I do, you should definitely give the Bruce Trail a try next time you’re at Brock. Word of advice: bring a map!
