Jones Falls in Owen Sound Ontario

Jones Falls in Owen Sound Ontario

If you’re looking for a day trip in Southern Ontario, a visit to a waterfall is a perfect getaway. Just head to Jones Falls in Owen Sound Ontario for some nature therapy.  From the parking lot, it’s just about a 15 minute easy walk to the waterfall. You’ll walk over a bridge and through a very well maintained wooded trail.

The waterfall is absolutely gorgeous. If you take your time you could carefully make it to the base of the falls. We didn’t go but saw others down at the bottom waving back to us. The sound of the water is so therapeutic – it’s a beautiful place to relax.

There are lots of trees and rocks to step through and explore. It is located in the Pottawatomi Conservation Area and there are many longer trails to explore if you’re up for the hikes.

The Cliffs and Caves in Tobermory

The Cliffs and Caves in Tobermory

Date visited: September 2015

We took a short weekend trip to explore The Cliffs and Caves in Tobermory. Tobermory is about a 4 hour drive north of Toronto.  It’s a little village on the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula, dividing Lake Huron and the Georgian Bay.

 

Little Tub Harbour is the focal point of the town.  It’s a pretty stroll around the harbour, with a few little shops and cafes closeby. 

Just a 5 minute drive from Little Tub Harbour is Big Tub Harbour, and the home of Big Tub Lighthouse.  We visited a couple of times – the nighttime visit was very peaceful.

We took a glass-bottom boat cruise on the Tobermory Explorer.  We found out that Tobermory is a very popular destination for scuba divers because there are many shipwrecks in the area to explore underwater.

It was cool and windy that day, but the sun was shining brightly.  We cruised around the little islands – the most famous one being Flowerpot Island.  The rock pillars on the island were something to see!  We also took a little ride by the Big Tub Lighthouse.

One of the most popular destinations in the Tobermory area is The Grotto in the Bruce Peninsula National Park.  The caves are fun to explore, and we could not get enough of looking at the turquoise water.

Although short, our weekend getaway to Tobermory was memorable.  We will definitely go back and explore more in Bruce Peninsula National Park.

Thanks for reading!

boondockVerb

To stay in a recreational vehicle in a remote location, without connections to water, power, or sewer services.

I have to say I was skeptical at first about travelling this way, but what a wonderful discovery!  Nothing comes close to watching the sunset every evening, and the sunrise every morning.   We used apps such as iOverlander, freecampsites.net and park4night to find our location.  The map below shows where we settled each evening.
