...both showcase the beauty of the gorge in different ways! Go on a weekday, early morning or in the off season to avoid the crowds. We parked in the quaint village of Elora and hiked in and out, exploring the many snow covered trails. The most enjoyable part of the day by far was scrambling down in multiple locations to... More

A great place for a day trip from GTA. We took a great hiking. There's even a little falls. You can take a tubing adventure during hot summer. As a part of admission, we visited Quarry Conservation Area which is really a beautiful gem.

This is a beautiful place to go for a hike. There are lookouts from the top if you don't have good enough footwear to go down into the gorge and explore, or take the path down and check out the water. The view is fantastic from the top or the bottom of the gorge. It's lovely in summer but beautiful... More

What a beautiful place to spend the afternoon. I had been here before in the summer and wanted to see it in winter. It is just as spectacular in the winter as it is in summer.

Had a great time here on Thanksgiving. Weather and colours were absolutely gorgeous. Good spot to bring dogs too.

I was mesmerized by the beauty of this gorge. There was a natural tunnel with stairs in it. Quite attractive! Another view I liked a lot was what I called the Three Sisters. These are three trees and their roots crawl all over the rocks. It’s truly beautiful! There were other trees that grew on rocks, but most of them... More

Had a very pleasant hike in the Conservation Area. It was quiet. The presence of construction only mars it slightly. Would love to come back in the summer and have a longer hike and picnic.

This has something for everyone. Beautiful views of the gorge, wonderful old forests, decent trails for walking. Currently, there is a bit of construction going on around the Elora Mill site right now, so to get to parts west of the Mill, we had to detour onto Price Street via Church Street. It's a beautiful forested area, and well worth... More

Spent the day in Elora which is on the Grand River. The Elora Gorge is dramatic and beautiful. The colours were outstanding.

My wife and I came here to walk the trails on a bit of a time constraint. It's very pretty in the fall but the trails aren't long enough for the price you pay (if longer walks are what you want). Seemed like a good place for a family walk though.
