    Alternate views of the Elora Mill Inn and the Elora Gorge can be had by following the lesser known walking trail on the opposite side of the Grand River from the Elora Mill Inn. From the mill, walk to the Geddes Street Bridge, opposite the gas station, cross it and follow the riverbank to the right. Impressive views such as in the attached photos can be had here. Following the paths further will eventually lead to the Elora Gorge Conservation Area. Beware of the high cliffs along the trail.

    Tubing is the for real adventurers

    Tubers float by as spectators watch them from top.

    Tubing is really off the beaten path adventure. It is more fun when done in company. We had only one tube and Rayyan and Ifrah took turns on it. But there were joint families and groups of 6 members and over, who did tubing and made chains by holding each others' hands.

    We took this picture at the gorge floor. The spectators are watching the tubers from hiking trail on the ridge that we began our trip to the park from.

    Take a chance with kayaking

    Kayaking in the gorge river

    Although we did not go for it, kayaking was actually possible and many adventurers were having fun in the deeper sections of the river.

    Boating, rowing and canoing that we husband and wife enjoy the most was not possible since the river was too rough and full of jagged rocks for us to undertake that activity.

    Do some tubing in the Grand River

    Rayyan enjoys tubing in the gorge river

    We rented the tube at the renting store near the entrance of the park. Suhail decided to drive the car upstream and parked it at the road side. We climbed the stairs down to the gorge where a group of visitors was already enjoying tubing.

    I frah was everready to be the first one to try it. Rayyan was initially scared, but then he let the fear go by taking a plunge. We collected him way down downstream.
