Dyer's Bay

About the Trail

Moderate | Signed | Gently Sloping | Exposed Rock

Watch for waterfowl at Dyer’s Bay! Juniper thickets are found on the rocky alvar characteristic of the area. The route of this walk is almost entirely on land purchased and managed by the Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC), thanks to the generosity of the BTC’s many members and donors.

From the parking lot, follow the white blazes (trailmarkers) of the main trail north along the Escarpment edge, with occasional views of beautiful Georgian Bay. Walk past the Laird Side Trail to the first intersection with the blue-blazed Juniper Flats Side Trail. Continue along the main trail until it meets the second intersection of the Juniper Flats Side Trail. Turn left and follow this beautiful side trail west and then south, through mixed forest, meadow and rocky alvar. After 2.5 km the side trail meets the main trail again at its southern intersection, and you can retrace your steps back to your car.
