Hiking along the Grand River – found large animal prints.


After looking at AllTrails for our next adventure, we decided to explore Tutela Heights in Brantford, Ontario. We parked near the Cockshutt Bridge Access Point on Erie Ave near Oxbow Road. There’s lots of parking here as it also allows portage into the Grand River. The trail starts on the other side of the Grand River across Cockshutt Road.

The trail is well marked with lots of foot traffic, even in the winter. Travelling down to the river, the scenery was picturesque. Excited to kayak this part of the river come Spring!

Look at this footprint. I’m not sure what animal made this, but it doesn’t look like a dog print.

When we hiked higher up, we discovered the trail head near Tutela Heights Road.

Grand Valley Trails Association is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the development and maintenance of trails. GVT has done a wonderful job keeping these trails maintained.

As we got to the top of the ridgeline we had an even more spctacular view of the Grand River.

Looks like someone may be climbing down using this rope?! Seems quite unsafe.
