A natural glimpse into the ice age
For the nature-loving tourist lay the Scarborough Bluffs, a geological wonder of sand and clay layers one the eastern edge of Toronto. Unique to North America, the bluffs rise up to 350 feet above Lake Ontario and stretch over 8 miles. Named in 1793, the bluffs have long been a remarkable sight.
The beautiful Scarborough Bluffs offer telling stories about the great ice age, containing fossil plants and animals that were deposited by the advancing Wisconsin Glacier approximately 70,000 years ago.
