I have walked on many, many sections of the Bruce Trail but have never seen the beginning of this 890 kilometre trail which mostly follows the edge of the Niagara Escarpment from the Niagara River to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.
Today I went and had a look.
The trail starts in the Queenston Height Park.
The only other creature I saw using the trail was this black and white mammal:
Several trees in the park display large crown galls:
Eventually the trail enters the woods:
There were several Red-bellied Woodpeckers in the forest:
plus these two:
You will hear the beat of a horse’s feet,
And the swish of a skirt in the dew,
Steadily cantering through
The misty solitudes,
As though they perfectly knew
The old lost road through the woods.
But there is no road through the woods. – Rudyard Kipling
