About the Trail
Relish in the crystal blue waters of Little Cove! Dazzling beaches, amazing rock formations, and water so clear you can see every stone; these sights and more await you on this lovely hike. You may even catch a glimpse of the sunken ship at Driftwood Cove -- a scuba diving hotspot!
From the parking area follow the white blazes (trailmarkers) on the main trail down the dirt road to the water. The trail then turns right and passes parallel to the rocky shoreline before ascending steeply up the Escarpment. Follow the white blazes along the twisting, rugged route and you’ll be rewarded with several lookouts over beautiful Georgian Bay. After about an hour you’ll arrive at a magnificent lookout at the northern end of Driftwood Cove. From here you can retrace your steps back to the parking area.
The Bruce Trail, Canada’s oldest and longest footpath, provides the only continuous public access to the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The Bruce Trail Conservancy is a charitable organization committed to establishing a conservation corridor containing a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment, in order to protect its natural ecosystems and to promote environmentally responsible public access.
