  • Been going for years. There are not too many areas around to go hiking, running or off road biking with your dog. Many challenging hills to run. Fun in nature setting.  more »

  • Short Hills is a fantastic, beautiful park that has diverse terrain, flora, and fauna. The trails are well maintained and have lots of scenic locations, like Swayze Falls. The signage marking the locations can be a little confusing, but it was a good experience exploring all the scenery. Considering the size and location, Short Hills can be a much more personal hiking spot compared to the much busier Niagara Gorge.
  • A beautiful reserve that offers many different trails. Lots of kilometers to be covered and access for horses as well.
  • Hike the Bruce Trail instead. The natural heritage of this place is amazing, but I was so disappointed in the design and layout of the trails. Rather than having them narrate the different micro environments and the geomorphological history of the space, the trails just kind of muddle around and give you the least interesting experience of the place. Also, google maps points you to the Scouts Canada entrance of the place; DO NOT enter here.
  • Great working out. Walking and biking trails and nature.
  • Lovely woods with fairly well kept trails. A nice little break from the noise and business of a city.
