Spirit Rock Conservation Area draws people from afar for its local history, legends and remarkable view of Colpoy's Bay. Encompassing 87 hectares, the site features the historical "Corran" the home of Alexander McNeill, a Federal member of Parliament from 1881-1901. The Corran was a 17 room mansion lavished with oriental carvings, ancient weapons, tapestries and book-lined walls. As known as the McNeill Estate, there are many things to see: an impressive view from the top of the Niagara Escarpment, a spiral staircase to the water's edge, and access to the Bruce Trail.
