The Lion's Head trail is part of the Bruce Trail. Please note that this trail is not recommended for small children since there are no rails and numerous crags and sinkholes. If you do bring a youngster, keep them on a harness.
If you'd like to hike a loop, follow the forested path into the trail, and you'll emerge onto the stunning 200-foot cliffs. Turn right; the trail leads around two sides and part of the third side of the peninsula before heading into the forested inland trail again.
The main and inland trail loop is approximately 18 km. The inland trail is well marked thanks to the Bruce Trail Club; follow the blue blaze for about four km. At the fork, continue to follow the blue blazes or you'll end up in McKay's Harbour.
Getting to the Trailhead Once in the town of Lion's Head, hang a right on Moore Street and proceed for about two kilometres, until you see the white Bruce Trail blazes on the right.
There is some parking at the trailhead on the roadside, but if it is too busy, park in the schoolyard about one kilometer back and walk to the trailhead.
