    My daughter suggested we visit this conservation area. Had no Idea such a beautiful area existed so close to Toronto. Took the dogs and had an awesome hike. Some areas are tricky and close to the edge...  more »

    My husband and I went to Belfountain Conservation Area today. We live in the area and have never been. What a lovely spot to walk. There are a few trails that are well marked and have good information...  more »

    Good place for spending half a day with friends and family on a picnic. There is a small Dam across a water stream. The short 0.5 km trail becomes adventurous even with a slight drizzle, making it an exciting hike. Fishing is also allowed. Pet friendly.

    I wont even give this place a single star but I have to because I wouldn't be able to post without it. The management is very immature and waiting for an accident to happen before they implement any safety procedures. When I got there during the afternoon of May 21st/17 the parking lot was full. I had politely asked the attendant to allow me to unload my belongings and let my wife and two little kids come out of the vehicle to enter the park. He told me that the lot is full and there was no place to turn around. I reminded him that I have two little kids and its unsafe for them to walk with me from wherever I would find a parking spot. At that point he suggested that I am holding up the traffic and move along. There aren't any parking lots around the park so you would have to park on the street. It was a busy day so I found a parking spot about a kilometer from the park. My wife and I grabbed our picnic cooler, portable bbq, and asked both our kids to hang on to our pants pockets since both our hands were full of stuff. My kids are 4 and 6. The 6 year old managed fine but the 4 year old had trouble walking far and hanging on to me while she was walking. The streets are really narrow and to walk on the street with traffic and little kids is very unsafe. My wife was walking ahead of me with my 6 year old son and my daughter was hanging on to my pants and we were both walking behind. My 4 year old daughter decided to jump from my right side to my left side to have a better view of her mother and a vehicle behind us had to slam on the brake to avoid an accident. This incident happened in front of the attendant that did now allow me to have my wife and kids come out of our vehicle in front of the park. He did apologize to me and I was so upset at the moment that I ended up yelling at him for not letting my family out of the vehicle. I really do feel horrible now for yelling at him. I went to the park entrance to complain and I was told that there was nothing that they can do. They are not willing to put any safeguards for toddlers and handicap and if the lot is full you are out of luck. We were fortunate that nothing happened to us but an accident in that place is inevitable!!! I hope that they learn soon and do let families with little kids and handicap enter the park while the drivers go find parking spots elsewhere

    Nice place and good options for pictures. The waterfall experience is nice. You can step on low flow water and it's too chill. But a nice to try.

    The waterfall is 2 minutes from the parking lot but there are several long and short hiking trails after that for those interested. The parking is terrible, barely any space and crowded. The town is cutesy but the residents are not very friendly.

    Anything said is less for this must visit place. A little cloudy day is recommended for a day tour
