It was still bright enough once we got back to camp for us to keep on exploring! Birthday adventures continued with the short walk around the Historic Site of Sauble Falls Provincial Park.
Our campsite is across the Sauble Falls Parkway, so naturally we walked over, because steps. But there are two parking lots available here. We came across nearer to the southern lot, and then crossed over the bridge towards to the northern lot.
It’s a short trail, but it does offer some pretty views of the falls. You can even stop and have lunch here.
We didn’t, but I of course took a selfie.
Further towards the end of the trail we found the hydro electric plant.
There was still a short, muddy bit of trail left on the north side but we decided to head to the south side instead. Back across the bridge, along the river there is a boardwalk to descend.
This gives you some more really great views of Sauble Falls. I’d guess it’s pretty busy in-season, especially when Sauble Beach is open. But for early May, there’s just about no one here. And that suits me just fine.
It’s too bad it was still too cold to take a dip. Although the current was pretty swift. Maybe down-river some.
I’m pretty sure this is the best view of the entire Sauble Falls area.
One last quick photo of Sauble Falls, with our one lone other visitor way on the other side.
And then we were climbing. There’s always climbing.
The stairs bring you out to a field next to the main camp area. There’s a trail that leads back to the southern parking, which we followed and then crossed the Sauble Falls Parkway back to our camp site.
As you can see in the overview map of the area, there is an additional trail still to be explored. Stay tuned!
