This challenging 8 km hike was designed with nature lovers in mind. It winds its way past beaver ponds, deer habitat and bird nesting areas. The Cooper’s Falls section is the first installment of Gravenhurst’s contribution to the Trans-Canada Trail system. Town staff and volunteers perform work on the trail to improve and repair different sections of boardwalk. This is the Cooper’s Falls Trail which runs along the Trans-Canada Trail. It offers beautiful scenery with lots of varied terrain. Throughout you will encounter scenic forest, lakes, ponds, rivers, cliffs edges and rocks. There are also two lookout spots with benches. Every once in a while there are some signs to let you know that you are going in the right direction. Some minor climbs add a degree of difficulty, and meadow areas with streams are not properly bridged, so come prepared with proper waterproof footwear. There are also some sections of rough boardwalk and lots of rooty and rocky terrain.
