Bracebridge - Ontario
To celebrate my 30th birthday my best friend Krista and I got out of the city to explore a whole new area I had yet to visit called Bracebridge! Normally this area is booming with tourism but during these unique times the town felt almost deserted. The historical architecture of this town is so beautiful it really makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time! With all the rain fall prior to and during our visit it made for a roaring waterfall that could be heard all over town!
Just up the road from Bracebridge lies multiple rivers which meet to form a half coliseum waterfall called Wilson Falls. There are multiple ways to access the waterfall depending on the view you want. You can either enter from the dam and view the falls from the base or you could also travel through the woods to access a view from up above – which I would highly recommend. The network of trails that run through the forest are very beautiful!
Walkers Point Lookout
Located just outside of Bracebirdge in the Muskoka Lake area you can access a quick hiking trail to a hilltop lookout called Walkers Point Look Out. I can only imagine the beauty of this area in the fall. It is a must to visit this trail and see this view – there is a lot of cool plant species in this area too!
Tucked just outside of the main city you can wander to find McCutcheons Falls within the secluded woods. Accessibility of this waterfall is only available from up top as the downstream view is on private property.
