Waterfall Chasing – Interactive Map

Waterfall Chasing – Interactive Map

There’s something pretty magical about waterfalls – they make us feel happy, and peaceful, and good about being out in nature.  In fact, a quick google search shows many articles talking about negative ions, found in abundance at waterfalls, boost our seratonin, create positive vibes and lift our spirits.  Check out WebMD here.  And so, since we live close to so many waterfalls, we started Waterfall Chasing.  And have created this Interactive Map of all the waterfalls we have visited.

There is a great website that we use for reference, to discover all the waterfalls, and to decide on which one to visit next:  http://waterfallsofontario.com/

The map below shows the locations of the waterfalls that we have visited.  Each red marker links to the video along that trail.  Check back often as we’ll be keeping it up to date.

Bike Cam Videos along the Waterfront Trail

Bike Cam Videos along the Waterfront Trail

If you know us a little bit, you will know that we have ordered a van so that we can turn it into a camper.  We should have had it by now (May 2021), but alas, due to parts shortages, we don’t have it yet.  While we wait, we have taken to the bike trails and are recording Bike Cam Videos along the Waterfront Trail.

The Great Lakes Waterfront Trail stretches 3600 km along the Canadian shores of the Great Lakes Region.  Click here  for more information on the Waterfront Trail.

The map below shows that spots with bike trails that we have visited.  Each red marker links to the video along that trail.  Check back often as we’ll be keeping it up to date.

Forks of the Credit Road

Forks of the Credit Road

If you’re looking for a short scenic drive near Toronto, look up Forks of the Credit Road. It’s located in Caledon, Ontario near a pretty little town called Belfountain.

We took a little drive in the winter to break up the winter blahs – it was just what the doctor ordered. Windy roads, babbling creek and beautiful sunny shadows as we drove through just before sunset.

It’s a popular spot in the summer months to go for a drive and stop for ice cream in the town of Belfountain. It’s also very popular in autumn to drive though and see the reds, yellows and oranges of the trees.

Forks of the Credit Road

Forks of the Credit Road is about a 40 minute drive from Toronto.  If you’re looking for a quick driving destination, this is it!

 

 Thanks for visiting!
