What you'll do

We'll walk through Birchcliff and then Rosetta McClain Gardens, a gem of the Toronto Park system while we talk about the history of the area. Then we'll go down a steep path to the bottom of the bluff and along the lakeshore toward the Cathedral Bluffs. The clay and sand layers of the Bluffs are a rare and important geological record of the last stages of the great ice age. Once we are down by the lake you will find it hard to believe this quiet wilderness so close to Canada's largest city.
