A beautiful hike with a gorgeous view! You can start the trail from the main entrance or you can drive north on walkers line in Burlington, park beside the picturesque grave yard (usually a few cars parked on the road side) and find a trail where you climb up the escarpment towards the main trail. This route is more challenging but usually not as crowded.

North Loop and South loop are about an hour each. 15 - 20 min up Guelph Line to get to Mount Nemo. Remember to bring $6.75 cash for the entrance fee. The trails are easy enough but some parts are narrow, rocky or have ups and downs. Wear long pants and closed shoes - the poison ivy will grow in between rocks on the trail or in carpets right on the edge of the trails and its easy to brush against. This is a great hike to do if you have a couple hours to spare. Try going on a weeknight after dinner when there are few people. Don't forget to check out the old quarry in the middle of the conservation area. A side trail will bring you right down into it.

Love this trail. Good basic hiking with awesome views from atop the escarpment. Especially pretty with the fall colours.

Great trail with great views from above. If you do all the loops it takes about 1.5 hours with stops. Not challenging but the views are worth it. Also you can explore the Niagara escarpment crevices.

Lots of parking. Good loop for a 1/2hour - 1 hour hike. lots of cliffs and caves.

Not very long, but beautiful. Just make sure you keep walking down the wide path till you see the yellow or orange plastic trail markers. And don't bring little kids unless you plan on worrying the whole way. Very dangerous drops. It was foggy so didn't get to see any of the amazing views, but still got some great photos. Totally accessible even with snow.

Nice trails with a wonderful view off the escarpment. However, the signage for the trails is very poorly done and it is easy to miss turnoffs and continue on the Bruce Trail.
