I never tire of walking through Col. Sam Smith Park and now that summer is officially here the paths and walkways are particularly busy with walkers, runners and cyclists. Sometimes I like to veer off onto the many beaches throughout the park and find a log to sit on and just enjoy the shoreline.
Last week after we walked through Grimsby Beach Village we got back in the car and drove for a short distance up the Niagara Escarpment to the Beamer Memorial Conservation Area.
The trail from the parking lot led us to a section of the Bruce Trail which brought us to the edge of the escarpment. From there we had a great view of the town of Grimsby, the highway and Lake Ontario.
We continued hiking west to find the Beamer Waterfall. This area was similar to other parts of the Bruce Trail that we’ve been on. After awhile we could hear the falls but we had to literally walk out onto a road and go around the barriers to see it properly. Luckily the area was dry and we didn’t have to worry about slipping.
Another beautiful day for a hike and when we find a waterfall it’s alway a bonus.
