A hidden gem in Southwestern Ontario! Great for hiking and camping. A total ban on alcohol is greatly appreciated. It can be a dangerous place, if one doesn't adhere to the GRCA rules and guidelines. Fences/barriers are up for a reason - stay safe!

If your looking for a nice day outside. Elora Gorge is a great place to visit. The town has a lot of history to read up on along with great pubs and eating establishments. Great destination for a motorcycle ride.

Went with friends during the winter for my first time there. The park is incredibly beautiful. Trails were clean, a few washrooms available along them. Spaces and activities for kids, dogs allowed. Scenic spots for good pictures. The river's water level was higher than usual,...More

Unlike the warm months that bring droves of tourist and sightseers, winter brings out another face of Elora Gorge. Only a handful of people walking their dogs were out on the trails. So really, my friends and I had the place all to ourselves. We...More

Enjoyed healthy hikes on wide trails in fall. Many people with dogs walking off leash. Not officially open with no trespass sign posted for warning to avoid injury. Free parking on road entrance.

Tubing season was over, but still fun for a hike and walk along the water. Lots of young families, a pleasant place to spend a Saturday. The Main town is lovely. Look for other trails if you want a hard core hike.

You may wish to contact the park directly. I'd guess they'd shut the front gates in which case the entire park is inaccessible.
