Toronto Zoo

We had a nice day to go to the Toronto zoo with our youngest son and it was a busy day at the zoo.

There is quite a bit of walking to do so make sure you are prepared.
We spent a few hours walking around and looking at the animals.

Mountview Falls and Princess Falls

The Chedoke Radial Trail
is very nice to walk a long and has a few waterfalls to see or go off the trail to see.
Some of them you can find better to view after rain or snow.
Also to do this trail you do not have to pay for parking. 
It gets well used and is an easy path to walk.
But to see some of the waterfalls can be harder to do.
We have walked this trail many times and have never seen water come off the Mountview falls till this time we went which was February 7 2016

  Mountview Falls

First time seeing water here as it usually has nothing on it.
very easy to find as soon as you get on the bridge you see in the picture here
the waterfall is beside it.



Directions from Hwy 403:  From Hwy 403 take the Aberdeen Ave. exit and turn right onto Queen St. S. Follow Queen St. S. up the Escarpment, where it will turn into Beckett Dr. and then Garth St. Turn right onto Denlow Dr. Follow road until it becomes Scenic Dr. and park at the Chedoke Radial Trail parking lot on your right. Follow the Chedoke Radial Trail / Bruce Trail east to the first ravine on the right. The waterfall is located in this ravine.




I think the bridge is kind of neat and for sure different 


Princess Falls

This is a small waterfall but very nice to see 
Always has water and easy to see when you walk a long the trail  

Directions from Hwy 403:  From Hwy 403 take the Aberdeen Ave. exit and turn right onto Queen St. S. Follow Queen St. S. up the Escarpment, where it will turn into Beckett Dr. and then Garth St. Turn right onto Denlow Dr. Follow this road until it becomes Scenic Dr. and park at the Chedoke Radial Trail parking lot on your right. Follow the Chedoke Radial Trail / Bruce Trail east to the waterfall.

You can also see a view fro the top of this which I had never done before so I checked it out

Bottom of Devil's Punchbowl



Weather for February has been quite mild so it has been nice to get out and go for a walk and do some trails and see waterfalls.

We had tried to attempt the bottom of the Devil's Punchbowl last year but we did not make it far as it was very icy and slippery the day we went last year.

But this year we made it to the bottom and it was a workout and well worth it.



















To reach it from the QEW, take Centennial Parkway, turn left onto King St. E, then turn right onto Mountain Ave. S. Follow it to the end. The Bruce Trail begins at the very end of this road. Follow the Bruce Trail to Lower Punchbowl Falls.
