Friday Favourites-- Lion's Head!

Happy Friday, lovelies. Back at the beginning of Covid, D was sthinking we should explore something local this summer. I was a bit hesitant but a few weeks ago I caved, a bit last minute as so many people had the same plan. Thankfully, we were able to find a cottage in Lion's Head and we headed there for several days. Lots of hikes,exploring, beach time and ice cream ensued!! Here are a few pics of the first couple days. 

First stop after checking in--- Lions Head Lookout.

Colder than expected, muddy, very slippery and looong... this was not my family's favourite. I think it would have been different on another day.

The lookout from up top was beautiful though.

We brought a lot of our own stuff so here were some not so well plated fish tacos that we had for dinner. Sidenote, I had to buy my family ice cream before dinner to compensate for the hike before LOL.

The owner of the cottage met up with us that night and she gave us the very best ideas for the next day's hike as it was chilly. Here we are at Spirit Rock Conservation Area.

A walk along the beautiful Bruce Trail but along water... Less slippery and beautiful water all along, my fam were in it to win it!!!

A spiral staircase right in the middle of all this vegetation to the water's edge-- it was so cool!! 

We packed a picnic lunch, had it by the water and the next stop was ice cream in the middle of Wierton

Then onto the Bruce Caves which we just happened upon. A certain eight-year old's legs were tired at that point-- good thing she is only 45 pounds.

We loved the Bruce Caves. Formed by the wave action of post glacial Lake Algonquin and some extreme weathering after it was like a beautiful natural playground. A was hopping around on all the different rocks.

After this, we just drove around a bit and just enjoyed some of the beautiful sights of this area.

So much beauty, so close to us!

Have a wonderful weekend, loves!!

Linking up with Andrea. 


  1. Yes! So many lovely spots in Ontario. It's a bit of a drive but would love to check out some of those hikes in the fall.

  2. What a fabulous little getaway! We often have to buy our kids ice cream or a meal after hiking too. It's the only thing that keeps them going in the end.

  3. It's nice that you were able to get away for a couple of days. My kids are not into my hikes as much as I am either! But ice cream always makes things better! Have a great weekend!

  4. How gorgeous is that lookout view! I haven't been hiking in forever, and need to go when it cools off a little <3
