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.

Very nice trails, kids friendly. This is our second time, we enjoyed the north to south loops, good 2.25hrs exercise and looking forward to have this over and over.

Did this walk/hike about 4/5 weeks ago and there was a lot of mud (to be expected)! It was still exhilarating and fabulous! Caves, a quarry, lovely look-out area and little brooks. Can’t wait to do it over and over again and of course to experience it now in the spring. My watch said we did 9km in total.

We went mid January, during one of the unseasonably warm weekends. It was muddy but the trail was still fine to do. We did the loop to the summit. Not a hard trail, some interesting elevation and nice views. great quick hike close to Toronto.

Great trail

Amazing trails, the app worked very well. Address is 5317 Guelph Line, Burlington and on weekends you must pay to get in, (they accept debit) weekdays the pay booth is unmanned but payment via honour system is still expected. Check website for fees www.conservationhalton.ca. Beautiful cliff views, sometimes the paths near the cliff are very rocky and kind of close to the edge so make sure you keep your dog on-leash (if not exceptionally well trained). Note to dog owners there is only one main large garbage bin in the middle of the parking lot for waste. Parking is cramped on weekends and exit is from the middle lot (not well marked) ...you can’t exit where you entered via vehicle.

Fun trail for a hot day because of all the shady trees! Great look out points. Saw many climbers with gear headed out on the trail. Connection to Bruce Trail is good for getting more km's in.

Great trail. Did the whole loop in 3 hours. Perfect for humid days as you are mostly inside the forest so lots of shade. No bugs either. We went on a Saturday between 2pm and 5pm and it was not busy at all. Very peaceful. If you are scared of heights, I would not recommend this trail, as the path is close to the drop, beautiful views up there. Very well taken care of, no garbage anywhere.

A beautiful park, with a relatively short pair of looping trails. The views are clear and far, but I prefer the cliff side views from Rattlesnake Point. Rather busy trails are why this is a 3/5 and not a 4/5 rating.

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.

Best hike all summer

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.

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.
