If you look out your window right now you'll see a seemingly never-ending blue sky, rays of sun shining from above and birds chirping. Spring is here officially and summer is just around the corner!
I think we can all agree that everyone is just happier during the summertime. There's way less to complain about when it's warm and sunny every morning when we wake up. Another great thing about summer is all the amazing outdoor adventures we get to experience!
Canada is full of unreal nature to explore but if you venture just south of the border you'll land in New York State which is full of exciting adventures. One adventure that should be at the top of your list this summer is the High Falls Gorge trail located in the Adirondacks.
High Falls Gorge is a 22 acre nature park featuring a huge wooden staircase that will take you past a rushing waterfall! It's located super close to Lake Placid and is about a 6 hour drive from Toronto, a 3 hour drive from Ottawa, under a 4 hour drive from Kingston and over an 8 hour drive from London.
Depending on where you are in Ontario the length definitely varies but it's totally worth the drive to explore this unique spot in nature! At this spot you'll walk past cascading waterfalls, over suspended bridges, past granite cliffs and even over glass-floor walkways!
There's actual 4 different waterfalls located in High Falls Gorge to see, the Rainbow Falls, Climax Falls, Mini Falls and Main Falls! The entire walk should only take you about 30 minutes but you'll get to see so much in such a short amount of time.
This walk is open all year round but even more frequently during the summer months. There is a price to enter the gorge, it's $11.95 for adults and $8.95 for children from 4-12.
The entire 'Waterfall Walk' is a 0.5 mile loop past all 4 waterfalls, whirlpool spots, natural potholes, and so much more! It's also a stunning spot to take photos.
