If looking out over incredible turquoise and ultramarine blue waters from stunning 200-foot cliffs give you a thrill, the main Lion’s Head Trail located in Lion's Head Provincial Nature Preserve is another one to explore. A forested trail leads before emerging onto some of the best views on the Bruce.

On a clear day, look to the south from the cliffs and you'll see Cape Dundas and Barrier Island and to the north, you’ll see the cliffs of White Bluff, Cape Chin, and Cabot Head. The Lion’s Head Trail has two loops – the main trail and inland trail for a total of about 18-kilometres. The trails are marked with blue and white blazes. To start your hike, park your car at the Bruce Trail Parking Lot on McCurdy Drive Parkette and follow the trails outlined on the map provided at the trailhead. There is no parking permitted on Moore Street, and the Moore Street Side Trail is currently closed.

TIP: Bring a walking stick as parts of these trails can be challenging. Some of the trails are not recommended for young children or dogs. Bring a harness if you have a young child. There are crags, sinkholes, and no handrails. An easier hike starts right at Lion’s Head Beach Park. Cross the Promenade to the marina and walk north along Bruin Lane.

The Bruce Trail cuts into the woods at this point. It’s only a ten-minute walk to Chetwynd Lane where you would turn around, but in between are Williams Cave and the Bannister Hill Loop Side Trail which is a pleasant 1-kilometre hike where you’ll discover forest, a variety of lookouts and escarpment views.
