Note: While local parks, shops, and events are reopening, Toronto Public Health is reminding individuals to monitor their health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. And if you’re not feeling well, they recommend staying home at this time. If you decide to go out, maintain the six-feet physical distancing guidelines.

If you’re looking for some gorgeous summer views just around the corner from Toronto, the Scenic Caves suspension bridge is an absolute must-visit this season.

At 82 feet high in the air, you’ll feel like you’re levitating above the lush forests of the Blue Mountain valley, as you take in the incredible panoramic views of Georgian Bay. And don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of room to move around — at 420 feet long, it is southern Ontario’s longest suspension footbridge.

You can get to the bridge via a self-guided walk that’ll run you about 45 minutes, and if you’re feeling lazy, the Scenic Caves Nature Adventures park offers tractor and wagon rides that’ll get you there in 10 minutes.

Access to the bridge comes included with your general admission to the park, which is a two hour drive from Toronto, just outside of Collingwood.

Once you’ve taken in the spectacular views, the park offers you plenty of additional things to do, like exploring its unique caves and caverns and getting your adrenaline fix with a zip line that reaches speeds of 70 km/h.

This season, Scenic Caves Nature Adventures will be managing the number of people entering the park to allow for social distancing. Note that once the park reaches capacity, they will be closing the park entrance.

Additionally, masks / face coverings are recommended for guests and there will be hand sanitizing stations throughout the parks.

“We are operating a new environment with new procedures so there may be some waiting required during your experience, we ask for your patience as we are doing this for you and for our staff,” said the adventure company.
