Hiking the Bruce Trails
The Bruce Trails is an 800 km hike that follows the Niagara escarpment from Niagara to the Bruce Peninsula.
I've only hiked a fraction of it but what I saw in a few miles convinced me to do the whole trail bit by bit. I felt like I was in a rain forest and all of a sudden, I'm on top of a cliff looking down at what looked like the Carribean!
There's 300 km of additional side trails - the main trail is marked by white blazes and the side trails are marked by the blue but go off the trail whenever you can - just don't get lost. =)

Historical connection to South England
Christ Anglican Church in Meaford has stained glass windows created from fragments of glass from the churches bombed in WW2 England. The pieces were salvaged by Reverend Harold Appleyard from Meaford who served as a Military Chaplain during the war years. The glass was re-leaded and returned to Christ Church as a memorial for Canadian men and women who served overseas.
