Length: 7.7 mi • Est. 4 h 6 m
Note: portions of this trail are reportedly closed certain times of the year. Due to seasonal extremes in temperature and the forces of gravity, large blocks of rock have broken away from the main face of the Niagara Escarpment. The gradual shifting downwards of these huge blocks has produced the crevice caves of the Collingwood-Blue Mountain area. The park's range of microclimates supports interesting cliff face vegetation communities.Show more

Hogg's Falls is a well-travelled, easy trail suitable for all ages. The falls are beautiful but can be tricky to get to a good vantage point. There is a rope and it’s doable but done at your own risk.Show more

This is nice short hike over interesting terrain with good views over the Kolapore Uplands. A significant portion of the trail (from about km 2.5 to km 3.6) is closed during the winter to all users except XC skiers.Show more
