Ascent Trip Report

A very pleasant walk on well maintained trail to a first class lookout over the rolling terrain of the Oak Ridges Moraine in So. Ontario. The Primrose Trail takes you to the right of Murphy's Pinnacle and connects with the Bruce Trail. Turn left on the Bruce Trail and within a short distance is a side trail to the summit. There is a direct route from the summit back to the Primrose Trail. Expansive views to the west,south and east from the summit. I imagine it would be especially impressive in the fall.
