A Great Hiking Trail Near Toronto

Last Tuesday, a few of us decided to get away from the suburbs and step into nature. A longtime favourite place to go to is the Forks of the Credit Park in Caledon, Ontario – a great hiking trail near Toronto. So that’s where we headed. The weather was great for a hike, and the park was just a short ride away. The spontaneity of our outing paid off with the wildlife we encountered along the way: sunbathing turtles, rare birds, a hungry beaver, and friendly horses.

Here’s a recap of our day out!
