  • 1

    Paddle, tube or raft down the Grand River

    Hike to the top of the Niagara Escarpment or along Canada’s oldest footpath, the Bruce Trail

    Hiking in Hamilton Halton Brant means discovering some of Canada’s most magnificent landscapes. An ancient fossil in the limestone of the Niagara Escarpment, or a Bruce Trail waterfall frozen in time make it easy to forget about the destination and just enjoy the journey. Options include Guided Bruce Trail Waterfall Walks and Self-guided Bruce Trail Conservancy Waterfall Hikes.

    Rock a Niagara Escarpment climbing adventure

    Why be limited by four walls at a climbing gym when you can take in views perched atop the Niagara Escarpment? A number of outfitters provide rock climbing and rappelling lessons along the limestone cliffs of Halton’s Rattlesnake Point. Experienced enough to venture out to climb on your own? Mount Nemo features a number of bolted sport lines.

    Bike the tough terrain in the Dundas Valley
