Plan a Hike

Trail Centre, Dundas Valley Conservation Area

GeoTrails continue to amaze with their online mapping tools. We've talked them up here before more than once, but the layers of mapping have steadily encompassed more of the kind of things hikers, cyclists and nature lovers will appreciate.

Looking for a great hike to one of Hamilton's 100 plus waterfalls? Start right here and then keep going to see detailed trail routes, trail head images, and plenty more.

I'm not sure if the trails mapped have been specifically contracted to the GeoTrails team to create, since I notice that the Spencer Creek Trail in Dundas is not marked, and likely others as well. Still, even with the gaps, an amazing local resource, and the mapping extends well beyond our municipal borders and across the country for those looking for adventures further afield.
