Second day of hiking in Bruce Peninsula.

 

As we were still bit tired from the hike the day before, we picked a relatively easy and flat trail.

Off to the Pease Side trail first, Push Cove Side Trail then will walk along the shore to Jakson’s cove in Hope Bay.

As soon as we walked into the trail, we were welcomed by so many full bloomed Trilliums.

We gently scrolled down the trail and found ourselves at Rush Cove in no time.

We came across another hiker and she told me that we will find a real treat at Rush Cove.

She was hesitant to tell us what it is but this really got us excited to find out.

 

Along on the rocky beach, we continued on the main BT enjoying the beautiful color of the water.

As soon as we come across the little cliff, we found the surprise the other hiker mentioned.

Streams of water from melted snow were coming down along the cliff, which made little waterfalls.

What a beautiful site! This could only happen early spring when all the snow melts on the ground.

Compared to yesterday’s hike, this trail brings you really close to the beach so you get to enjoy the color right in front of your eyes.

We continued on the path through Cape Dundas passing by nice meadows and forests with lot of birding opportunities.

Now on to the Jackson’s Cove side trail. This is highly recommended and guarantee you a gorgeous view of the Bay.

There is some flat surface so we had a lunch here overlooking this view.

After lunch, we walked further a bit more on main trail and made a loop to come back to the parking lot.

This section of the trail was also filled with Trilliums.

We were lucky to see so many Trilliums that year since having a cold winter/spring pushed back almost 2 weeks for Trilliums to bloom.

We stopped by to say hi to cows on the farm after the hike.

That day, we went to check out the local famous fish and chips restaurant (DNA Fish and Chips) north of Lion’s Head.

It is basically a food truck parked in the parking lot.

There are a few picnic tables that you can sit and eat there.

Well….. I must say this was the best fish and ships I’ve ever had.

We were there based on our B&B owner’s recommendation.

All the fish they serve is from the morning catch from Georgian Bay so the fish is super fresh!

It is a bit of run down place but it is so worth the visit.

Happy Hiking!
