Suspension bridge hike over Ranney Gorge in Ferris Provincial Park, Ontario.

When you're craving an adventure with stunning nature views, but don't want to hike all day, you might want to check out this Ontario trail. This easy hike will take you past a stunning forest and a waterfall lookout to a giant suspension bridge that crosses a blue water gorge.

Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge is in Ferris Provincial Park right in the small Ontario town of Campbellford. There are tons of trails to choose from, but the 3.5-kilometre River Gorge Trail loop will lead you right to this picturesque suspension bridge.

You can check out this 300-foot-long suspension bridge all throughout the year and admire the scenery in all four seasons. It hovers about 30 feet above the water and is just south of a waterfall lookout. Plus, you don't need to be in the best shape to be able to enjoy these stunning panoramic views.

The other trails in the provincial park are interconnected loops, so you can follow the same trail back to your starting point. So you could add some activity to your day with these other hikes and admire the towering suspension bridge from a distance.

If you're still up for an adventure you can swing by Campbellford afterwards where you'll find Canada's Giant Toonie.
