Blockhouse Sunset

Wake up a little earlier than usual and head down to Blockhouse Island to view a jaw dropping winter sunrise. As the steam rises from the river, watch the vibrant yellows, oranges and pinks emerge from the south.

Gorgeous views of the Islands make this location a little piece of paradise! Step out onto the dock, or walk the along the top of the rocks for some lovely lookout views. Don’t forget to bring your pup along for a photoshoot!

The Brock Trail
This 7km trail runs from Brockville’s waterfront, all the way up to Mac Johnson Wildlife Area. Along the way you’ll follow Buell’s Creek, cross cute bridges, walk through a railway tunnel underpass, and much more! You really never know what you’ll come across, that will create the perfect winter scene… like the photo above!
