Renowned as the best vantage point in the Niagara Peninsula to observe the annual spring hawk migration, and part of the internationally designated Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve, Beamer Memorial Conservation Area offers one of Niagara’s most breathtaking and panoramic views of the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario. Take a walk along the scenic Lookout and Bruce Trails and soak up the picturesque views of the 40 Mile Creek Valley, the Lake Ontario shoreline and the escarpment ridge from one of our viewing platforms. Bring your camera to capture amazing pictures year round of the Escarpment cliffs and terraces, Lake Ontario, and the Upper and Lower Falls along the trail. As a natural escarpment property this area has a variety of old growth and interior forest offering a linear wildlife and plant corridor, with Sugar Maple and Red Oak predominately throughout the site as well as some Hemlock and White Cedar.
