Spring adventure at Hilton Falls

“That is my favourite sound,” I said.

“What is?”

“Just listen,” I explained and as we stopped talking the sound of frogs calling through the forest became clear.

For me their chirping is a reminder of summer camping trips deep in the bush, paddling down winding rivers under the hot sun or hikes on a crisp spring morning as the sun warms the forest.  It is the dawning of a new season.

Although temperatures in Canada have been up and down, this past Sunday was a balmy 15 degrees, which encouraged us to go on a hike at Hilton Falls. It is a favourite of mine as it is close to where I live and has a beautiful waterfall.

The downside is that the weather brought out a lot of tourists. I think it is great that so many city people are exploring nature, but if you want to avoid crowds at Hilton Falls stick to the Bruce trail side trails for a peaceful hike. Either way it felt great to be outside enjoying the warm weather.

What is your favourite spot for a short hike?

  1. Our favorite spot is one of two places: Red River Gorge in my home state of KY or Pisgah National Forest in my wife’s home state of NC. 😃
