sf you like spelunking/hiking/caving/crevassing then this is the place in southern Ontario to go. The devils pulpit is somewhere around there too. Lots of good trails, mountain bike trails as well. There's a lot of crevasses to climb in if you like caving. Hole in the wall, and the cartwheel cave are the most fun.

If you like to hike with many trails to choose this a very good park. There is also a spot you canrepel from with a help of a friend. Easy to get to by car.

We live close to this park so we visit often. It's a bit pricey like all the Halton Conservation Parks but that's life. (And this park is larger than the others so you might spend an entire day there.)

Tends to be very crowded on weekends when the weather is nice but not bad in the morning, or during the week, of course.

You can hike for miles along the Niagara Escarpment with great views. Some years, the fall colors can be fabulous (but they were not in 2011, a bad year around here.) Some of the paths are fine but others are very rugged. (I certainly would not go with someone in a wheel chair since many of the paths are too rough.)

The restrooms are outhouses; kept clean but certainly not fancy.

Many people come for picnics or barbecues in groups. You do need to bring your own food and water since that's not available for purchase.

Great for families but watch your children AND dogs! There are holes along some of the paths that can be dangerous. (We always joke that if this were in the U.S. they would have paved paths and guard rails.)

On weekends, rock climbing groups practice here and they can be interesting to watch. You can go down some metal stairs to a lower area for a better perspective.
