Saltfleet Conservation Area

Saltfleet Conservation Area is HCA’s newest area to explore and is located south of the Niagara Escarpment in the Upper Stoney Creek and Upper Battlefield Creek watersheds. Saltfleet boasts nearly 316 acres of unique natural features.

At this time, the area offers a single trail, the Heritage Green Community Trust Trail, at the end of the parking lot which connects to the Dofasco 2000 Trail and Devil’s Punchbowl Conservation Area. A Master Plan is currently being prepared and reviewed to identify areas for further trail development and nature appreciation.

The woods here are made up of marshy fields and woodlots and provide a home to 50 species of breeding birds. Nine of these birds are uncommon in the Hamilton area, including a breeding ground for the Sedge Wren, a highly significant species of wren.

No water sports of any kind are permitted in the conservation area. The wetlands are strictly for wildlife habitat and water management. Please do not attempt any water activities and stay on the designated path at all times. You may see HCA staff on or in the water at times- they are performing routine maintenance and ecological work.
