Victoria Day in Spencer Gorge / by Ted Kaiser

We’ve had a wet, cool spring in the Toronto area, so it was nice to have a gentler forecast for the Victoria Day weekend. Though the weather didn’t quite match up to the prediction, Victoria Day was still a nice day for a hike. We decided to do a little hike that we’ve previously only done once before, in the winter. This hike is a side trail (currently not officially open, but there were dozens of people along the trail the day we were there) off the Bruce Trail along the Spencer Creek gorge. The gorge itself has many nice rapids on the Spencer Creek; however, the big payoff is Webster’s Falls, dropping a height of 22 meters across a 24 meter wide crest.
