ACCESS

Climbing is "tolerated" as a non-conforming use of the park. Highly sensitive area. Strive for minimal impact and low profile. Approach via Bruce Trail entrance at the McCurdy Parking Lot. Please do not sling the cedar trees as anchors. The Cedars are a very touchy specimen in Ontario, many of these trees are over 1000 years old and access can be severely hindered if climbers are found damaging trees.
