Hiking Trails & Lookouts

Regular price $0.00


Perched atop the Niagara Escarpment our hiking centre has 15 kms of trails meandering through 370 unspoiled acres of natural beauty. These incredible places, that we usually reserve for our winter adventures, will allow space for everyone to safely distance as well as provide unique and new views of our 200 year old forest.

Our well-marked trails offer something for everyone.  Choose the length of trails that suit your abilities. Easy, Moderate and Advanced all trails are marked by signs, designating their degree of difficulty and distance to assist you in safely exploring this wonderful world of nature.  Travel along our terrain, featuring gentle rolling slopes to steep climbs, and expansive, world class views for an adventure suited to your ability. 

Lookout points will surprise you on most of our trails with vast panoramic vistas, perfect for picture-taking or just soaking in the beauty of Mother Nature. The Lookout Point and Lookout Trail is aptly named for its breathtaking views and is well worth the effort on this moderate trail.
