  • We’ve hiked in the Conservation area a number of times recently. It is a good, moderate in difficulty (hills!) series of picturesque groomed trails.  more »
  • Live within minutes of this natural wonder. With it's many trails and nature experiences, I wouldn't live anyplace else.  more »
  • This is a nice place for a tame hike. Most of the various trails through this area are wide, and many are gravel. They are wide enough (generally) to walk side-by-side - this is different from many spots on the nearby Bruce Trail where, if you're hiking with a partner, you need to hike one in front of the other. There are places where the area can be accessed from residential streets if you want to avoid a parking fee. Near the main parking lot (Parking Lot C) there is an old railway station/interpretive area/building with a concession stand and indoor washrooms.
  • Dundas Valley....great park, riding, hiking, jogging, birding,etc. Bruce trail crosses through the park. Good for all year round outdoors. Enjoy.
