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.

  • It's a 40-minute commute to get here from the city above Toronto and it's definitely worth the trek down to experience this park. Absolutely beautiful coming here during the Fall and it's worth the ad...  more »

  • YES, this is the one. One of the better trails I've been on, definitely coming back in the future. It goes on and on, don't really think it is necessary to do the whole thing to get the best out of it. Some of the views are amazing, but as you get further in, it's just a forest pretty much.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful place to spend the day hiking, picnicking, and laying on the grass. The trails are perfect for all levels of fitness. Very well kept and clean.
