Weekend Outdoor Inspiration January 8, 2021

Here’s your Weekend Inspiration to get out and stay out

Snowshoeing at Kelso
Kelso has launched a new experience! Snowshoeing! You can rent them onsite with a reservation or bring your own, they’ve got campfires going and you get a complimentary hot drink

Bronte Creek Adventure Lab
Have you tried the Adventure Lab geocaching app at Bronte Creek yet? The Adventure Lab app guides players through the process of finding clues, solving puzzles, and completing Adventures, one location at a time. Click on the link for all the info

Lakeside Festival of Lights, Spencer Smith Park
The Festival of Lights has been extended until the end of January, so you still have time to check it out. Walk the Burlington waterfront to see over 60 festive light installations.


Fifty Point Conservation Area
The trail through Fifty Point is about 3kms, it’s an easy, flat, paved trail that’s perfect for little ones. Great views of Lake Ontario (try for an early morning sunrise or an evening sunset for best views). Located in Winona.

Hidden Valley Trail, Hidden Valley Park, Lemonville Rd, Aldershot
This is an easy, in/out trail, that starts at Hidden Valley Park and goes all the way through to Royal Botanical Gardens if you want to go that far, it meanders along Grindstone Creek, there’s little bridge crossings and bird watching platforms. Go as far as you want and turn back when you’re ready.

If you’re looking to stay in town, in Halton you can find trails at Westbrook Park (Mississauga St, Oakville), Sherwood Forest (Fairview St, Burlington), Mill Pond (Margaret St, Milton). In Hamilton some options are the McMaster Forest Trail (Lions Club Rd), Trenholmes Park (Milkyway Dr), Valley Park (Paramount Dr).

Don’t forget if you’re staying inside but still want to get your nature fill – Hamilton Conservation Area website has a Nature At Home page for a ton of fun, nature based kid stuff that you can do right in your own backyard or out on a trail or even inside, like scavenger hunts, challenges, nature games, activity and colouring pages.


I love the outdoors and I hike a lot. Sometimes I bring my kids. I love to inspire others to get outside and explore too! I post trail reviews, outdoor events and tips and tricks for getting out more. Join the chat on Facebook for even more inspiration.
