Overhanging Point – A Breathtaking View

The Cyprus Campground site at Bruce Peninsula offers a lot of things to do and see. Campers are within walking distance to hiking trails, lakes, Dragon Head Cove, the Grotto and Georgian Bay, of course—where the clearest of all water is waiting for you to get wet. Thirty minutes walk from these sites, is the Overhanging Point where it can be reached via the Bruce Trail.

Advise to those who want to go hiking: wear shoes that would hold and last on rocky/craggy trails.

On your way to the Overhanging Point, you won’t miss this gravel part of the lakeshore.

I was told that these loads of gravel are used to build railways and other infrastructure.

This is the entrance, a tiny hole, to the bottom of the Overhanging Point.

Slowly, I went down through the hole but this is where I could only manage to do.

I could go down there but I wasn’t sure if I could climb back.

It was too risky for me—and there was no cellphone signal there—just in case I’d be stuck. I don’t wanna be the guy in the movie, “Into The Wild.” LOL…

So, I climbed back out of the hole….

…..and roamed around—-desperate to find another way. “There must be another path,” I thought.

But, such search was futile. So I sat on this Overhanging Point….
