Great Falls/Grindstone Falls

We did not do this whole trail. Good size parking lot. Parking was free. Very busy.
I want to go back and get in closer to the falls. 
There were lots of families on this trail.

Directions from Hwy 403:  From Hwy 403 take the Hwy 6 N (Guelph) exit and travel approximately 3 km to Hwy 5 E. (Dundas St. E.). Turn right on Hwy 5 E. and then turn right onto Mill St. before the railway tracks. After the overhead railway bridge the Smokey Hollow Resource Management Area parking lot will be on the right. This waterfall is next to the parking lot.

Progreston Falls

                                                         Town of Carlisle

Says private property on sites I have read. We went to it and there was a little spot that is not really for parking and we parked there and got out of the car. We saw some kids going on the property and followed not to far behind. There was a big black gate that you could walk around a path to get to the area. Lots of trees were down in the area. Not smooth to get around.

To get there  Directions from Hwy 403:  From Hwy 403 take the Hwy 6 N (Guelph) exit and travel approximately 13 km to Carlisle Rd. Turn right on Carlisle Rd. and then turn right onto Progreston Rd. The waterfall is beneath the overhead railway bridge.

                                              I went down the stairs to the bottom to get closer

                                               The way I came up I should not have done
                                went across a pipe and climbed up the ladder on the wall

North Shore Trails RBG

This was a nice simple trail. My Husband and I and our youngest son did this today. Very nice scenery around. You will see deer in this one but have your camera ready better than we did. :)
This trail was well marked with even maps.

                          We saw deer through out this trail but we finally got a picture of one.  :)

Borer's Falls/Rock Chapel Falls on Easter Sunday

Thought we would do a trail with the kids as it is Easter Sunday and spend time together in the morning before preparing for Easter Dinner. We had a very nice morning together.

                                       I think this was made for our youngest to sit and take a rest

                It was cool but sweater weather. What a great day to spend together when we have the time.

                                                                          HAPPY EASTER
