Nice and easy
Apr. 2021
We originally intended to go to one of the more popular parks in the area but after discovering that it was at capacity, the ranger suggested we try Terra Cotta.
Very glad he did.

The girl at the admissions gate was very friendly and helpful and we couldn't resist buying some maple lollipops and maple cookies from her.

Despite it being a beautiful day on Easter weekend, it wasn't crowded.

The trails were relatively short, not strenuous and very well marked.

We tried four of the trails, all quite lovely, but my favourite was A.F. Coventry Nature Trail as it offers a bit more terrain and includes some nice sections by the rushing clay-coloured stream.

The park includes a little store and clean washrooms all next to a large picnic area. It even has a large covered picnic space in case of rain.

If you're a hiker looking for a challenge, this may not be the place for you. But if you want a leisurely day out in nature, I'd recommend this park. Great for families with kids. Dogs will love it too (must be on-leash as in most conservation areas).

Stunning Scenery
Aug. 2020
The Terra Cotta Conservation Area offers several scenic trails surrounding a few smaller lakes and ponds. With the trails being relatively short, you can get through several in a day. This park is perfect for all types of visits, providing a peaceful escape into nature. Even though our visit was in the summer, I imagine there will be beautiful colours during the autumn. I recommend a visit for anyone seeking an easier, simple hiking experience.

Lovely trail to the pond!
Aug. 2020 • Family
My 7-yr old nephew rode his bike while we hiked.

We enjoyed the MacGregor Spring Pond trail and will definitely come back to explore the other trails of Terra Cotta.

Snowshoeing
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Trying to find different spots for snowshoeing. This is a lovely place with a variety of trails for cross country skiing or snowshoeing. It was a self serve day when we went and we were a little unsure of the trail layouts. It took us a bit to figure out our directions and with a little help from a seasoned trail blazer we got started on the trail for which we were looking. Lovely in through the forest on a very windy day as the wind whistled above the tall trees. This is one of the trails that is left natural which we thoroughly enjoyed blazing our way. We will be back.

perfect place for easy walks with most beautiful scenery
Oct. 2019
Went to this place with a group of close friends in October to see fall colours. Very easy walking with no hills to climb, no rocks to climb. Still offered most beautiful scenes the nature can offer. I would recommend this place for families with elderly or younger members who cannot do high level hiking trails.

Hidden Gem

I cannot venue begin to describe how gorgeous this setting is! It’s a great area to hike and run and walk your dog too. On leash of course!
It’s so peaceful. Parking is easy and there is plenty! I cannot believe I didn’t know if this location before!

Fall colors in full bloom
Oct. 2019
It was an awesome drive from Cheltenham Badlands (Caledon) to Terra Cotta Conservation Area. We enjoyed the full bloom of fall colors on our way and in the conservation also. A must visit to enjoy the fall colors. There is a shuttle bus service from Terra Cotta to Badlands which makes it possible to park in the conservation and enjoy the fall colors to Badlands.

Day Hike
Sep. 2019
Terra Cotta Conservations has several hiking trails and you can easily make a day out of hiking this area. For the most part the trails are easily marked. I did get turned around a few times, on one of the trails. Most of the paths easily walkable and fairly wide, so you arent too crowded.
I found the yellow trail more challenging with more incline. Its a shorter trail, but make sure you have proper hiking shoes on this trail.
Another bonus, was the bathrooms have been one of the cleanest I have seen at some conservation areas. So, bonus points for this.
Throughout the trail you will see different landscapes and marshes. There are benches for resting and I also seen picnic tables.

What an oasis!
Jul. 2018 • Couples
We hadn't dined at Terra Cotta Inn for about seven or eight years, but have stopped in there three times in the past six months, and have enjoyed it immensely. The food may not be the cheapest, but is sure worth the money. The patio is gorgeous and spacious, so if you are travelling in the Caledon/Georgetown area in the summer, you could do worse that stopping at Terra Cotta Inn to dine.

Nice maple syrup festival
Mar. 2018 • Friends
First time, we went to this place and it was for the maple syrup festival.
It was nice to go there and you know more how they make maple syrup.

We ate some pancakes and it was good !

Overall, it was a good experience.

I recommend this place.
