Boyne Valley Provincial Park
The Hike to Murphy’s Pinnacle –
From Hwy 89, travel north on Prince of Wales Road. About 1 km north of Primrose, in the valley of the Boyne River, you will see a widening of the road with room for six to eight cars to park.
On the east side of Prince of Wales Road you will see blue blazes heading north and climbing to Murphy’s Pinnacle, one of the highest points on the Primrose Moraine, a relic of the last period of glaciation. To complete your hike, take the same trail back to your car. If you are feeling adventurous, you can head east from the Pinnacle to reach the main Bruce Trail (white blazes). Follow the Bruce Trail eastward until you reach the Boyne Valley Side Trail. Follow it south and west back to the Bruce Trail. Turn left, and head north across the Boyne to reach the Primrose Loop and then head back, west via Murphy’s Pinnacle.
This hike will take about one hour and is about 2 km long. If you continue to the Boyne Valley Side Trail you will be up to four or five hours on the Trail and it is 8 to 9 km long.
