This Ontario hike comes with some incredible views, and you can wander right over a rushing waterfall. Pukaskwa National Park, located on Lake Superior, has tons of rugged landscape to explore, and it makes for a beautiful fall road trip.
The park is open until October 15, so you'll be able to catch some vibrant fall colours. One incredible adventure to take in the park is the White River Suspension Bridge Trail, which leads to a towering suspension bridge over a waterfall.
The hike is no easy feat; be prepared to journey 18 kilometres on this rugged route. Along the way, you'll travel across boardwalks, shorelines, wetlands, and colourful forests. There are rocky and muddy sections, so be sure to wear appropriate shoes.
Eventually you'll reach the White River Suspension Bridge, which crosses right over Chigamiwinigum Falls. The "swaying" bridge hangs 23 metres above the cascade and spans about 30 metres across it.
You'll be suspended above misty water, and you can take in incredible views of the rocky gorge and fall colours.
If you're looking for other beautiful suspension bridges around the province, the Scenic Caves Nature Adventures bridge stretches over a colourful fall forest with views of Georgian Bay. You can also cross another, smaller waterfall at the Belfountain Conservation Area's bridge.
