Devils Glen Provincial Hike Bruce Trail

Situated on the Niagara Escarpment 518 m above sea level, this park features rock outcrops, forested slopes and wetlands, and protects a geologically significant incised river valley. Meltwater from the last retreating glacier carved the steep gorge of Devil’s Glen, where the Mad River now winds its irregular route. Today, I did a 7 km in-and-back hike, meaning I double backed to the beginning point. The first part of the trail is beautiful, the second part is a long, darker forest and can get quite muddy. Be prepared to look for the smallest of life in there, like frogs, snails and caterpillars. Thanks to the Blue Mountain Bruce Trail Club for their care of this section! Happy Hiking Everyone!
