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.

  • This place is great. Lots of lookout points, a reasonable amount of vertical and the terrain is average. Not too challenging, you shouldn't see strollers here. The one minus is that it's so easy to get to, sometimes a lot of people are on the trail and it begins to feel crowded. Usually this is in the fall when the leaves are turning.
  • Crazy busy at times! Beautiful area for family and nature walks with kids. Recommend to avoid long weekends if avoiding crowds and having a peaceful walk is what your looking for.
  • Offers a variety of hiking trials, rock climbing routes, camping sites and even caves to explore. The day pass admission is very affordable and grants access to other parks and conservation areas. About an hour drive west of Toronto
  • 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.
  • Really nice hiking place. Amazing track and views. Close to Burlington. You got access to another 5 nearby conservation areas with the same ticket. No direct sunlight since it's all covered with trees
