We thoroughly enjoyed our day... we were familiar with the area but discovered new places to hike and to grab a bite and a beer!

Yesterday's Trip

We did this trip on a beautiful sunny day in December (a Friday). We did in reverse to what was recommended since we really wanted to reach and enjoy the last destination. It worked really well for us living in the Guelph area.
The destination town was lovely and we ate at one of the recommended restaurants for lunch. Lovely atmosphere and service. Great burgers, not so great fish and chips.
We did one of the short hikes which was lovely. We found we didn't have time for several other things on the route but did finish at a great brewery and bought two types of wine. Highly recommended.
