A lot of nice hidden gems we’d never heard of before! The cafe was great! We ran into a few issues though. We couldn’t find the trail on stop one so we took a different one & it was rough terrain & muddy. The lookout was blocked off so couldn’t see anything. The trail at stop two wasn’t marked & was extremely unsafe & difficult to do. I fell & was covered in mud. The view was nice though. The farm at stop three was more of a stand with barely anything in it when it was described as a country market! The two beaches at stop three weren’t really beaches, just rocky shorelines. The directions to one of them was wrong so we got lost. The last beach at stop four was beautiful & we went swimming. The restaurant was closed due to no hydro but we found a great bbq place instead. The second brewery at stop four was really nice.
The only issue we had was a fence around the lookout at stop 1. A local told us about a hole in the fence and a path we could take to the lookout. If it wasn't for the local, it would not have been worth it. Overall, a great day with lots of options!
We live near this area and had no idea some of these places existed! Lots of hidden gems. We really enjoyed the trails that overlooked Lake Erie! I would definitely recommend to do this trip in the summer so you can take advantage of the awesome beaches!
Great day had alot of fun and would do it again but in warmer weather to take advantage of the beach, we went in early May so not warm enough to take a plunge
