Highlights of Metcalfe Rock
This area is a part of the Bruce Trail and is a haven of ancient white cedars, mixed in with deep caves and crevices and quality rock climbs. You have a choice of climbing to the top on either the main Trail or via a blue-blazed side trail. The adventurous will want to take the latter through a rocky gorge 30 m high. The Trail reaches the summit with splendid views to the west over Kolapore Creek Valley. It is hard to believe that 100 years ago there was a community here thriving on lumbering and other resource industries.
For those with time and energy, you might consider the full 9.3 km of the Chuck Grant Loop, which explores the west side of the valley and Duncan Crevice Caves Nature Reserve.
