One of Halton Hills’ greatest assets is its natural beauty. Luckily, this is easy for anyone to enjoy, as our town is home to many great conservation areas.
Credit Valley Conservation has three beautiful conservation areas for you to explore within Halton Hills. All three offer access to a section of the Bruce Trail running through the Niagara Escarpment.
Limehouse Conservation Area is not only home to beautiful trails, but also features the unique ruins of old lime kilns.
Terra Cotta Conservation Area and Silver Creek Conservation Area offer trails that are perfect locations to go bird watching, or simply enjoy the outdoors.
More information on these three conservation areas can be found at their website .
Just outside of Halton Hills’ borders, Conservation Halton offers many conservation areas that are both beautiful and informative. You can stroll through a recreated Indian Village at Crawford Lake, or scale challenging cliffs at Rattlesnake Point.
You can enjoy some great skiing at Kelso in the winter, and come face-to-face with a great horned owl at Mountsberg. Both Hilton Falls and Mount Nemo offer numerous hiking trails which will lead you past stunning views.

Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes
with a Foreword by singer-songwriter and Niagara Escarpment admirer Sarah Harmer
Want to reduce stress, spend time with friends and family, feel healthier and have fun? Then lace up a pair of walking shoes and hit the trails.
Building on the success of Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes, Nicola Ross’s latest hiking guide, Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes, expands into new hiking territory.
Nicola describes 37 routes that will appeal to casual walkers as well as seasoned hikers. Her loops all begin and conveniently end at the same location, so there’s no need to drop a car or to retrace one’s footsteps. Ranging in length from 3.6 to 24.8 kilometres, each is accompanied by a detailed map, precise directions, loads of colour photos and a smattering of local lore.
Halton Hikes features routes in Oakville and Burlington, along the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment near Campbellville, Milton, Acton, Georgetown and Glen Williams, and into the rural areas just across the border near Eden Mills, Rockwood, Erin, Cheltenham and Terra Cotta. If you live in or visit the Greater Toronto Area and the Golden Horseshoe, Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes will provide you with days of enjoyment.
