Petroglyphs Provincial Park features hiking trails, and the largest known collection of aboriginal rock carvings in Canada.
These directions are from Google Maps.
The Google Maps directions seems to vary from day to day. It might be worth checking them Saturday morning.
Petroglyphs has 14 kilometers of hiking trails of moderate difficulty.
The petroglyphs themselves are in an enclosed area near the visitor's centre. Native people have requested that photographing and videotaping the rock carvings not be permitted for spiritual reasons. You can photograph and video everywhere else.
Dinner in Peterborough.
On the way home, we will stop somewhere to check out the Perseid meteor showers. Out in the country, it will be dark, so we will have a good view of the stars. Bring binoculars.
