Gorge – Wander Text
It’s hard to believe that in less than 5 minutes from any main street or neighbourhood, you can be totally immersed in nothing but nature right in our backyard, but feel as far away as your mind will wander.
The Elora Gorge is one of the most beautiful and spectacular natural areas in the Grand River valley. The Grand River rushes past 22-metre high cliffs. Riverside trails (with safety barriers) and scenic overlooks provide hikers with stunning views of the water far below where kayakers and tubers make their way through the rapids.

Gorge – Tooth of Time Text
The Tooth of Time: In 1927 the “Islet Rock” was secured with a steel rail at the point and the rock was faced with cement, with hope that it would last forever in the middle of the Grand River. This is the starting point of the famous “Elora Gorge”.
