Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area, Milton

4.7
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. Plan my Campbellville trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • After living 10 minutes away for the last year I decided to finally visit Rattlesnake Point. I visited on a Friday afternoon in mid December and it was amazing. I essentially had the park to myself for my entire visit, I saw one person and their dog on the trail and 1 person in the parking lot. The views from the lookouts and quietness of the winter made for an amazing afternoon and the park 100% lived up to the hype. Being mid December I wasn't sure what to expect for maintenance but all of the paths were clearly marked and well maintained. I could easily see myself returning in the future and possibly purchasing a year round pass. Kicking myself for waiting so long to visit.
  • Awesome area for a picnic. If you want a roof shelter for the picnic, you will need to reserve ahead of time. Lots of easy trails you can go on. You can also rock climb. Washrooms are relatively clean. There are BBQs and water taps for you to use. There is a fee to go into the conservation area. I've been going here for 14 years and I have not seen a rattlesnake.
  • Great easy trails with fantastic views, good in the winter and in the summer. Basic outdoor rock climbing in the summer with top rope anchors. It's just about less than $10 per adult for admission fee. Parking included. Part of the Bruce trail network.
  • One of my favourite places. Not too crowded. Camping, trails, rock climbing, caving... so much to do and the most gorgeous views. What more could you ask for?
  • Went there this summer with my fiancee and our puppy who was about 4 months at the time and we had a blast! We all enjoyed it very much, We took the nassagawyea trail and could only get through half before turning around but we want to go back now that it is winter and see how beautiful it is now, as it was back in the summer 😁
