As one of southern Ontario’s last glaciers slowly began to melt about 13,000 years ago, the impact of the dissolving ice on stone created a series of fascinating geological features that include sinkholes, disappearing streams, caves and valleys known today as the Eramosa Karst.

Home to what’s believed to be the largest number of unique karst features in any protected area in the province, Eramosa Karst Conservation Area features trails, boardwalks and bridges to encourage exploration of these unique geological formations that include a natural dolomitic limestone bridge and Ontario’s tenth largest cave.

Be sure to bring your binoculars! Eramosa Karst Conservation Area is also a feeding area for threatened bird species, including the bobolink and the chimney swift.
