    (Off Topic) Hiking Killarney PP [o]

    My Dad and I had a great week camping, paddling, and hiking around Killarney Provincial Park. I thought I'd share some photos, since you all like trails in the woods and such.

    We traveled and arrived at the George Lake Campground on Sunday. After setting up, we hiked the Chikanishing Trail. Nice introduction to the terrain.
    On Monday, we drove to the Bell Access Point. We paddled Bell Lake, and then hiked to Silver Peak, the highest point in the park. This was a full day with great views.
    Tuesday we drove into Killarney, and with a lift from the Killarney Lodge, did the George Island Trail.
    Wednesday was a day to rest the feet a bit. We did the Granite Ridge Trail in the morning, and canoed around George Lake in the Afternoon.
    Thursday, we hiked "The Crack." We started the hike in light rain, but the rain stopped shortly after. This trail offered some nice challenging terrain, and probably the best view in the park.
    Friday, we hiked the Cranberry Bog trail in the morning, and then departed.

    We then spent the long weekend at Earl Rowe Provincial Park in Alliston with my whole family. Not as "epic" as Killarney, but not a bad place to hang out either. (not pictured)

    I had a great trip!

    Looks like it was a great trip!

    Interesting to see that the trees that far north are about the same stage as down here!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    Looks like you had a rare day. Silver Peak and 'the Crack' all to yourselves. Great Timing!
    If you happen to see my lungs back there, tell them I've gone on ahead.

    Sweet!

    Great way to spend time with Dad, and some cool pics too!
    I have to admit I have not been to Killarney, always choosing other destinations for canoe tripping. Pathetic really, considering how close to home it is for me!

    I noticed that too, last week travelling through Niagara region, New York State, and Pennsylvania I thought in some instances the leaves were same as or even ahead of Muskoka!! I wonder if the drought this summer in Muskoka followed by very wet autumn so far influenced this? Leaves have been falling dramatically last few days, it soon will be all over!

    Almost! There was another pair of hikers at the top of Silver Peak, and we did see a couple descending the Crack when we were going up, but overall, it was a very peaceful and quiet trip.

    The colours were pretty close to peak. There was still plenty of green, because of the evergreens.

    Also, a lot of leaves fell during the week we were there.

    Thanks for posting, great pictures, I'm the same as old blackcanoe live close but I've hiked more on the east coast than central Ontario.
    Looks like a fun trip.
