It’s tough to get the awe inspiring nature of the gorge from the trail hiking trail layout. I recommend going early on the weekend during the summer as it gets really busy. Next time I’m taking a tube down the river for a better look.

The Elora Gorge gives you the opportunity to take some beautiful pictures, as well as explore. We loved sitting in the shade along the banks of the gorge.

A must see. A unique water area to swim, fish, hike, bike or tube. We went in August and it was nice to cool off in the shaded areas of the Gorge. There are many areas to view the gorge so bring your camera.

Great place to spend the day. Excellent views of the gorge and Grande River. Beautiful spot. There is a fee to enter the park.

We’ve come to the gorge almost every year with the kids. They love scrambling around the rocks and little creek at the bottom of the gorge, then having lunch in one of the many restaurants. It’s a perfect day trip.

Beautiful paths and view- great place to hike and relax. Free parking close by, and you can enjoy Elora downtown while you are there.

Yes, but go with people who can swim. 90% of the tubing is a lazy river and is slow and relaxing. And the depth of water is from knee to chest high. It is mandatory to wear a life jacket and a helmet which can be rented or... More
