Did you know there are colossal ruins near Toronto?
You can find them one hour from the city, at Rockwood Conservation Area.
To reach it, head to the Pothole Trail, which starts near the beach.
Following the path will lead you along the serene Eramosa River, across a boardwalk, and next to a damn with cascading water.
When you reach the Harris & Co. Rockwood Woolen Mill ruins, you'll be able to enjoy the view of the impressive exterior walls. But the interior has been blocked off, as they are being repaired.
Along the hike, there is no shortage of breathtaking sights to marvel at. You'll also get to visit glacial potholes that span up to 200 metres wide and were formed in the ice age.
