Hiking Trail Wildlife Area
Taking its name from the serpent-like path cut by glaciers along the surrounding Niagara Escapement, Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area bursts with life and outdoor excursions. Spanning nearly 100 sq km (38.6 sq mi) of biodiverse landscape, the region is a natural playground for all ages, offering 17 campsites, four developed trails of varying difficulty and for the daredevils, rock climbing across three designated sights. If you're looking for a relaxing ramble, take the Rabbit Run or Vista Adventure for easy inclines and breathtaking panoramic views from Nassagaweya Lookout. For those seeking a challenge, hike the Nassagaweya Canyon Trail, a four hour round trip taking you to Crawford Lake. If hiking, bring plenty of water and a picnic.

  • Wife and I went there May 20/17. We did the Rattlesnake trail from Crawford lake and it was amazing. Great scenery and fantastic people on the trail. There were a fair amount of rock climbers enjoying the day. Certainly recommend the 5-6 hour hike
  • A really nice place for camping, hiking, rock climbing and spending time with friends and family. There's many great spots and areas to explore. There's also hidden caves on the trails. Not recommended for small children as the trails have a lot of holes, rocks, etc.
  • Great place to come and have an easy hike with friends and family. Plenty of picnic areas, and the trails are very clean and tidy. Parking is abundant and the park is typically host of events during the weekends.
  • One of the most beautiful places in Ontario. See the turkey vultures soaring over the escarpment from Buffalo Crag look-out point, and interesting ecological rarities like the thousand year old cedars. The Buffalo Crag Trail can lead you all the way to Crawford Lake Conservation Area (with intermediate difficulty) but need to arrange a return ride from the other side.
  • Beautiful trails. Most are moderate to higher level of difficulty. Bring good running shoes. Recommend planning a full day to explore.
