The boardwalk around the lake is a very pleasant and easy hike, and the reconstructed Native village is informative and authentic. The visitor centre is not great, not very informative, and a cruddy gift shop. Fortunately it's largely irrelevant to the experience.

Since first going here on a school field trip I have always enjoyed returning. The boardwalk around the lake is beautiful and the last time we came we got to see a bunch of turtles that were up close to the path. Great place to go for a summer walk.

Just off Guelph Line, North of Derry road in the area of Burlington and Milton is a gem-like little lake. surrounded by fragrant cedars and bordered by limestone outcrops it is easy to forget one is a short drive from the Queen Elizabeth Way or the 401. But this secret little lake on the escarpmet holds a secret of its... More

We were nicely surprised by the historical content at this location, once we found it. The kids enjoyed looking at the exhibits before our peaceful walk around the lake.

I took my 9-year old daughter and my dog here last winter. We rented snowshoes and went for a hike on the trails reaching as far as the cliffs near the Niagara Escarpment. We had a great time. Even my dog loved it. Be careful of the cliffs as they are quite high and the snow can be deceiving. There... More

We love this place just up from Milton, on the Niagara Escarpment. The day we were there, they had fires burning in the great longhouse, and we got a good idea of how smoky it must have been when the First Nations survived the harsh winters up there. I was amazed at the bunks made of cedar branches and at... More

This conservation is another one of the finest in the Niagara escarpment. It has a little tribal village and when you enter that place you feel so much back in time. Nice to see how the aborginals lived their lives back in the years. This place has different trails as well. The lake is very close from the parking and... More

Great! easy! Lovely walk on boardwalk. Quiet and enjoyable. Will go back in spring. Unfortunate that payment is required to see natural environment.

Great hikes here but it gets very crowded on weekends.Try to go early in the morning to beat the crowds as it is also popular for rock climbing. Trails are well-maintained and there is lots of parking available. It's a nice hike to Crawford Lake as well.
