Sports and Outdoor Recreation

The beauty of the Niagara Escarpment beckons millions of visitors—in every season. Its cliffs and caves draw rock climbers and spelunkers from all over North America. Hillsides, creeks, lakes and rivers make a perfect setting for more than a dozen golf courses — public and private. Lakes and streams are a perfect place to cast a fishing line on a warm summer’s day… or for more of a sure thing, you can try fishing with the family at a trout farm.

Escarpment Country™ is blessed with over 10,000 acres of parklands, carefully tended by Conservation Halton, and featuring over 100 kilometres of hiking and biking trails in six separate conservation areas. On Town of Milton trails, you can bike, stroll or hike through woodlots, ravines and parklands.


Conservation Halton

Your neighbourhood conservation authority, Conservation Halton, works to protect, restore and manage natural resources in your watershed from lake to escarpment. Our vision is to sustain a healthy watershed with clean streams, vigorous forests, abundant green space and balanced growth that results in strong livable communities.

A place like no other. How many parks within an hour of Toronto boast a meromictic lake surrounded by a boardwalk and a 15th century reconstructed Iroquoian village? (Hint: it’s just us!) Take a step back in time in an Iroquoian longhouse or charge up the ol’ DSLR camera to catch the dragonflies as they skim the surface of the tranquil lake.

Hilton Falls wears well in any season. Like a chameleon, Hilton Falls blooms bright in spring with boundless wildflowers, envelopes its landscape in rich greens in the summer, blazes firey ambers and hues of red in the autumn and as the icy air tickles its way through barren branches and frozen waterfalls in the winter, you realize that all this is just minutes away from home. 645 hectares of bliss.
