Indian Falls Conservation Area

Indian Falls Conservation Area offers a horseshoe shaped waterfall named after a Nawash Indian tribe who once lived in the area. The 15 metre high waterfall is spectacular in the spring and early summer. In late summer little water flows over the soft shale escarpment. Hiking a rigorous 1 kilometre trail will reward you with a view of this scenic waterfall.

The Ganaraska Millennium Conservation Area

Travel the trails within the Ganaraska Millennium Conservation Area during any season; however, hiking in the warmer weather truly showcases nature’s beauty.

In the spring, marsh marigolds cast a golden glow on the forest floor and Rainbow Trout are making their journey up the Ganaraska River to their spawning grounds.

The shade from the willow, ash, and maples provide relief from the lazy days of summer. Orange and Yellow Jewel Weed, and Moneywort along the trail provide hiding grounds for cicadas that sing their buzzy thrill.

Fall provides a beautiful pallet of colours: purple asters, yellow goldenrod, and the multitude of colours from the migrating warblers, and the glints of red from spawning Coho and Chinook salmon in the Ganaraska River.
