Nice to spend an afternoon there!

Nice experience!

It was great. I took two kids with me, and they had a ton of fun. The whole trip was about 4km walking. I definitely agree with parking at Tiffany falls and working your way to Sherman Falls.

Amazing views

Beautiful area!! We hiked to the falls and back.
Had lunch at the falls, where fires are kept going.
I would say this is an easy hike & really enjoyable.

Great place to escape the city and explore the Burlington escarpment

Started from Hilton Falls Conservation area. Took the Bruce Side Trail and then the main Bruce Trail up to the bridge. Ok hike, views from the bridge weren’t as nice as I was hoping, but it was still nice to check out a new spot.

At the suggestions of others here, we started the trail at Tiffany Falls and worked our way backwards. Started early in the morning so the it wasn’t super busy and it was a beautiful trail. My only disappointment is part of the trail at Sherman Falls is no longer accessible (closed to hikers) so thankfully we had a map for the Dundas Valley trails to jump on to reach Canterbury Falls

nice trail that's full of mixed levels trails. definitely not for families with young kids. good signage at the start but then trails split and things get confusing due to lack of signage. certain parts definitely require skill and proper gear.

Great easy trail with wide pathways if you have a larger group. The overall hike was short but if you prefer waterfalls then it's a great place to go.

Great trail but we accessed trail from walkers line and the climb up and down the escarpment was a bit tricky.

Started at Tiffany falls and went backwards. Took my 12yr old daughter or her first hike and it was challenging but for for her. Well maintained and not a lot of traffic. Views were great.

Did 12.5km today! Such a beautiful place to relax and get much needed scenery in!

I did Beaver Dam Trail and Red Oak Trail.

Beware of very limited parking on Sundays as they lock the gates at the front. There is a small lot and parking is not allowed on the road.
This seems to be a conservation area geared towards families picnicking, using the boat launch, etc. so not a good fit if you're looking for a more remote hiking experience. We walked on a lot of pavement.
To be fair we didn't end up really exploring the hiking trails, we started down one and it was muddy to the point of slipping and sliding. We were already turned off enough to just turn back and head home.

Nice trail in a forest with great look out in the middle.

start from Hilton falls for this trail. beautiful views

went to go see this trail it doesn't exist anymore it's a quarry with no trespassing signs all over

Beautiful trail and while I would definitely hike it again I would not recommend it for someone who isn’t used to hiking. My mom had a really hard time with how hilly and rocky the trail got in some places. Next time I would also agree with others who suggested parking at Tiffany Falls and taking the trail backwards. The parking near Sherman falls is pretty far from the trailhead and is uphill on the way back and after a hike on a humid day, that hill was not fun.

beautiful view.

Beautiful trail! It's rocky, but mostly level so over all a pretty easy hike. Also, lots of other great trails in the conservation area at the end of the trail where I parked.

Highly recommended trail we had a wonderful experience

Awesome hike

Kelso reminds me of a smaller Blue mountain but with a man made lake and beach. The hiking trails and great, some made for biking but really nice and mainly inside a dense forest. We walked 13 km all around the trails and will come back again soon.

It was ok for boating not for hiking

Good sights at 500m, both Mississauga and Toronto downtown are visible. Binocular views of birds that fly so near are definitely an attraction. Easy trail with young children. Watch for deep cave openings at walking level once you reach the summit. Kids should be kept close and not on the loose over there.

great place not busy was able to get over 10 k hike in. will likely go again. maybe try MTB.
