Perfect season for hiking the outdoors

LIONS HEAD –If you can the handle the wet earth and slush of early spring, now is a great time to go for a drive north, hike and get outside.

Up near Tobermory, Ontario, on the Bruce Peninsula lays Lions Head Provincial Park, a nature reserve near the town of Lion’s Head on Georgian Bay. The park contains portions of the Niagara Escarpment and is noted for its glacial features, especially potholes—deep, cylindrical holes in rock supposedly from the last ice age.

This time of year the ice near the shoreline is beginning to melt, so be sure to avoid stepping offshore on a hike to get a better view, it’s not worth the picture or memory because the ice is very likely to crack. As long as visitors stay on the marked paths and steer clear of the ice they will find awesome views of the bay from high above, or can even enter the valley and check out the broken up ice pans and ice jams caused by the fluctuating temperatures.

Tobermory is known for its crystal clear, blue waters in the summer and even as the seasons are changing you can experience this sight near the shorelines. Water so clear you can see the rocks at the bottom.
