Scientists trust that millions of years ago, the park looked more like the Great Barrier Reef of Australia before the forces of nature gave it a makeover.
Today, black bears roam free in its thick forests, but they are not alone.
Snowshoe hares, chipmunks, foxes, and snakes are just about a few of the fauna that calls this park their home.
The park welcomed its first-visitor in 1987, and it’s 156 square kilometers from a big part of the UNESCO Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve.
Nature and Wildlife
Bruce Peninsula national park has an extremely strange collection of ancient trees and wildflowers.
Trust it or not the park hosts more than forty orchid species in spite of the fact that these flower varieties are largely tropical.
As you see the park, you may also come across some dwarf Lake iris, northern holly fern, and Indian Plantain.
Also, keep an eye out for cliff vegetation. Some of the cliff-hanging trees have been around for 1000s of years.
Frogs, chipmunks, skunks, porcupines, squirrels, snowshoe hares, snakes, and white-tailed deer are quite simple to spot as you tour the park.
But you never know, you may just come across a fox, black bear, marten, fisher, or the Massasauga rattlesnake.
Cyprus lake trail that skirts the Cyprus lake is the best place for birding, both for breeding species and migrants species, including Tanager, over 15 warbler species, Sandhill crane, and Upland sandpiper, and more.
Given that the Bruce trail ends at Tobermory, you can guess nothing but great paths for all levels of hikers.
Discover the hidden treasures of this park at your own pace.
Break a sweat on the Cyprus lake trail, Marr Lake Trail, Georgian Bay, Singing sands, or Horse lake.
