It was a beautiful day and it was time to go off on an adventure. We were on the road and hadn’t yet settled on our final destination so I decided to ask a guy at a bike shop where we should go. I’m glad I listened to his advice! We were off to Lynn Valley Suspension Bridge!
When we arrived the kids were kicking up a fuss and being cranky. I don’t remember what it was about I was not interested in their complaining. Time for some nature therapy? Absolutely!
We weren’t 2 minutes into our hike and were turned around and lost. You see there’s a lot of trails off the main parking lot so we headed to the right when we really should have gone to the left (note to self, pay attention to where all the people are coming from) So after a four-minute detour, we were back on the right path.
The decent down to the suspension bridge is an easy walk past picnic tables, a beautiful coffee shop and ecology center. A trail marker stating that we were about to enter the Baden Powell Trail meant we were close. It seemed only appropriate that we were hiking the Baden Powell trail on Thinking Day weekend… my Guiding friends will understand!
