Dundas Valley Conservation Area
The Dundas Valley's 40-kilometre trail system is open to hikers, dog-walkers, cyclists and equestrians. Enjoyment and safety among such a diverse group begins with every individual. The Dundas Valley Trail Centre, a replica of a Victorian train station, is the hub of the valley's trail network. The centre has a food concession, interpretive displays, brochures and maps detailing the Dundas Valley. It is also the starting point for numerous guided hikes and nature-oriented workshops. The trail system is organized around a main loop with five linear trails providing visitors with access to almost every part of the valley. The conservation area is bisected by one of the region's most important walking, cycling and equestrian routes - the West Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail, which stretches 32 kilometres (20 miles), from Ewen Road in Hamilton to Mohawk Park in Brantford. Links to Cambridge and Paris extend the trail another 50 kilometres.
Visitors can enter the Discovery Centre and learn all about the Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve. Enjoy works on display from our Artist of the Month, examine fossils found along the Escarpment, and our volunteers can help the kids make fossil crafts! The Giant's Rib Discovery Centre is open weekends from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
