Robert Edmonsdon Conservation Area, Milton ON
Hidden gem alert! Robert Edmonsdon CA is a small conservation area but worth it. It’s perfect for smaller kids as it’s not a long trail and it’s relatively flat but still has some great views! There’s a frozen pond, a boardwalk through a marsh area, and a beautiful forest to walk through.

Bulls Point Loop, Royal Botanical Gardens, Old Guelph Rd Entrance
Bulls Point Loop trail is about 5km long, steep elevations at times (but short lived) boardwalks & stairs. Part of it runs along the water with views of Cootes Paradise, a bunch of look out points, lots of wildlife to see.

If you’re looking to stay in town, in Halton you can find trails at Millcroft Park (Millcroft Park Dr), Orchard Woodlot Central (Orchard Rd) and Village Wood Park (Chalmers St Oakville). In Hamilton some options are the Randall Park (Robson Cres), William Connell Park – which also has a really fun playground (West 5th), Bayfront Park (Harbour Front Dr).


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.
