  • Beautiful place to visit. Lots of trails, scenery and water! There is also (albeit small) lighthouse which isn't open to the public, but is great to look at. Definitely a great place for photographers. Public washrooms are near the "pebble" beach. No food shops.
  • I spent part of an afternoon with my children (aged 5 and 14) hiking along the trail that led to the potholes and scenic overlook. The trail was more challenging than many as you had to carefully step over bumpy rocks and tree roots. It's not the kind of path where you can look at the scenery while you walk. If you do that, you'll fall on your face. That said, I enjoyed taking some moments to stop and look at the beautiful surroundings and feel totally immersed in nature. The trail map that is posted is not great as it is missing a lot of detail and doesn't show any of the little side trails. That made it a bit tricky trying to figure which way to go to see the bluffs. Apart from that, we really enjoyed the experience and seeing Georgian Bay from waaay up high--it was truly amazing. It's definitely worth the hike. For a less challenging and quicker walk to the potholes and lookout, walk down Moore Drive and take the dirt road/path.
  • Lion's Head Provincial Nature Reserve features stunning panoramic views from the lookout and interesting geologic features of potholes and a cauldrons. This year (2016) is my family's second trip to this location. Should you have smaller children or not up to a more challenging hike to the lookouts, use the Moore Street Side Trail. Recommendation to Province (and municipality) - either create a small parking lot at the Moore Street gate or ban parking along Moore Street to McCurdy Drive Parkette.
  • Breathtaking views of the Georgian Bay along the Bruce Trail, amazing lakefront backcountry camping at MacKay's Harbor, and world-class rock climbing. Lion's Head has it all! Even staying for just a weekend, it's well worth the trip out here. There are few nearby campsites, so book ahead, or plan to hike out to MacKay's harbor for amazing night sky views.
  • Beautiful scenery. Lovely and easy hike
