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.

  • Rattlesnake Point is one of our go-to hikes with our family. Usually our three teens go with us but today it was just my husband, our dog and I. It was a gorgeous 22C and sunny. Rattlesnake is a busy ...  read more »
  • This is a fantastic place for a hike this time of year to get some fresh air and see the fall colors. 
  • The views of Mt Nemo, farms, colourful trees, escarpment, cedars, and limestone are wonderful. Popular walking place for people and dogs. 
  • Awesome hiking. Rock climbing is good, though the routes are a bit worn. Beginner friendly as all routes are all top rope accessible however without the need to rappel.
  • My default hiking spot. It has a bit of everything. There are amazing views and different terrains. Many trails connect. Easy or difficult, long or short. Choose your type of hike. The only problem is it gets busy.
  • You get a shut-off time that you need, with nature to soothe your mind. Good trail with good view points. Rock climbing and picnic areas are available here. A worthy place to explore and relax.
  • If you want a family hike that offers beautiful look outs right away, this is the place for you. Dramatic look outs are only minutes away and can be accomplished by anyone. If you want to spend hours hiking, the trail connects to Crawford Lake and is approx. 7 km one direction.
  • Hiking here is a lot of fun. The blazed trail is well kept. But if you like to sweat a bit more, you can always choose to go down a wilder alternative path or take the part of the Bruce Trail that runs through the park. There is a good parking space available here as well.
