Wander between waterfalls. Spelunk in hidden sinkholes. Marvel at a rare meromictic lake. Crawl into a historic limestone kiln. Search for fossils in the rocky crevices on the Niagara Escarpment. Watch turkey vultures drift effortlessly on wind currents for hours. If it’s been a while since you’ve heard yourself say, “You will not believe what I saw today,” it’s time to spend a few hours exploring in Hamilton Halton Brant.

When exploring our region’s trails, waterfalls and conservation areas, please follow posted safety rules, stay on marked trails and do not climb or bypass fencing. Stay at least a body length away from escarpment and gorge edges and always be alert for potential hazards such as falling rocks and slippery rock surfaces.
