Travelling Chicken - Ontario Trips and Activities
38 Russett Ave, Toronto, Ontario M6H3M3
The Elora Gorge is one of the most beautiful and spectacular natural areas in the Grand River valley. The Grand River rushes past 22-metre high cliffs. Riverside trails (with safety barriers) and scenic overlooks provide hikers with stunning views of the water far below where kayakers and tubers make their way through the rapids.
Lets spend a day exploring this natural wonder by tubing, hiking and swimming. Tubing down the river is a fun and exciting way to see the wonders of the Elora Gorge. From the rushing white water to the towering cliffs, tubing offers more than just a refreshing ride on a hot summer day.
Elora Quarry Swimming
The cliffs that surround the two acre swimming area reach 12 metres (40 feet) high and provide a stunning backdrop for those sunbathing on the sandy beach that was built when the area was opened to the public.
On occasion, people jump into the swimming hole from the surrounding cliffs, but this practice is strictly forbidden and will get you tossed from the park. Besides, the beach is actually really nice here.
NOTE: Elora Quarry is usualy very busy and there is 50/50 chance to get in. If we won't be able to get in after tubing we will go hiking. There is very nice hiking trail along the waterfalls and Grand River in Elora.
