Woodend Conservation Area is a 111 km acre region along the Niagara Escarpment. Sweeping cliffs line either side of the park with stunning views of Lake Ontario. Down below, vineyards and orchards line the escarpment. The popular 3.2 km trail will take you through meadows and woodlands filled with Carolinian Black Cherry, Black Oak, and Sugar Maple trees. This trail also connects to the famous Bruce Trail and provides incredible opportunities to view songbirds and a historic limestone kiln. In fact, the region is also steeped in history, as it was thought to have been an important observation point during the War of 1812. This park was at the centre of the action! Today, visitors enjoy hiking, picnicking, cycling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing throughout this stunning region.
