Exploring: This section of Trail starts with a trip through the valley of the Bighead River, then winds along the Escarpment to the expansive Bayview Escarpment Nature Reserve. Spectacular views of Georgian Bay are plentiful in this section. Waterfalls are also a hiker's delight. Near Owen Sound, the Sydenham River tumbles over the famous Inglis Falls. The Sydenham section is home to provincially rare ferns, such as the Hart's Tongue Fern.
Pick up a copy of "Looping through Sydenham" from the Sydenham Bruce Trail Club for ideas and maps of day hikes along the Bruce Trail in the Sydenham section. Check the Club's website for details on this great guide.
