Minus the ticks (all part of being out in nature though) and the odd idiot with an offleash dog, Eramosa Karst is a very special place. There are a number of trails to check out with little caves to check out along the way. Once, while I was out on the trail, I happened upon some turkeys! Keep your eye... More

The reviews and naming of the geological features can set you up for disappointment here. Sinkholes, caves and natural amphitheatres invoke images of dramatic landscape. But if you bare in mind there is nothing deeper than 10 feet to be seen here you will no doubt have a pleasant hike in the woods. Just bare in mind you will not... More

Thank goodness Hamilton finally made a good decision to protect these lands. The caves are fascinating. Don't expect huge caves, they're not huge but it's their accessibility that makes them wonderful. You can actually climb down into them and see the lay of the land. It is a beautiful area. There is a small parking fee now which is annoying... More

There are coyotes in the area that are being crowded in by development and are hungry. There have been warnings about taking dogs in to the conservation area because the coyotes view them as a threat. I once saw a coyote in the middle of the afternoon walking down a driveway nearby. I avoid the karst now. It's better for... More

A wonderful place to escape the bustle of the city. Great place to walk or ride your bike. Pay parking sucks though. It should be free!

It was lovely surprise to find small caves & hidden streams in that park. Good for the families with kids. I was surprised by the parking charge.

This is a nice outing on a warm day. The trails take you through a relatively unspoiled area of the Niagara escarpment above Hamilton. If you've any notion of what a true karst is (i.e. you've seen some of the massive underground caves in Europe), then this might disappoint as the scale of it all is very modest. It's interesting,...
