Best of The Bruce – Highest Point

trip report by best hike editor Rick McCharles

For no good reason other than it was the highest point on the Bruce Trail, I headed for the John Haigh Side Trail via Pretty River Valley Provincial Nature Reserve.

I stopped at tourist information in Collingwood and got a good map to find the trailhead.

There were several choices. Best looked to be Pretty River Access Trail. I could make a bit of loop with Pretty River Side Trail.

As a trail run, it was a pleasure. Lots of soft footing.

On the other hand, Pretty River Side Trail turned out to end in a bog. I had to backtrack uphill.

I was bitten by a small dog on a leash. (Actually it bit a hole in my running shorts, missing the skin.)

Later in the day I managed to lose my camera. Including the photos from this hike.

Rats. 😦
