Petun Conservation Area


Named for the Indigenous peoples that lived in the area in the 1600’s, the 100-acre Petun Conservation Area is full of heritage and natural wonder. One of the highest elevations on the Niagara Escarpment, it offers a beautiful lookout with a view of Georgian Bay. Enjoy a stimulating day of exploration, walking the Petun Trail and connecting to the Bruce Trail. You can follow the meandering path through cliffs, rock faces, and natural habitat that is best seen in early summer or fall. Nature enthusiasts will appreciate the unique moss and fern communities — it is also a great place to view migrating Monarch butterflies! Hikers can camp here on a first-come, first-served basis. Winters are marvelous for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. At Petun Conservation Area, the possibilities are endless!
