Sunny Day at Wilder Forest in Uxbridge

The first time in visiting Wilder Forest was so enjoyable, we took the time to visit again (see our first visit to Wilder Forest here). Wilder Forest is just under an hour drive from Toronto, to the north-east.

Being the first sunny and warm day of March, we wanted to revisit the forest!

The terrain of Wilder Forest features rolling hills and valleys, in which the trail weaves around and over. If you are looking for a good leg workout, head here!

This time we were able to visit the Lookout Point, not far from a trailhead entrance off the road. Here, you can enjoy views of Durham Region and Toronto.
