The Highlands offer magnificent scenery including breathtaking waterfalls and 35 kilometres (22 miles) of nature trails. Hundreds of hectares of forests with creeks, lakes and wetlands create the ideal habitat for more than 70 species of birds and 18 species of mammals.
In the winter 35 kilometers of groomed cross-country ski trails wind their way through the Conservation Area. Skiers pay to use these trails in the winter and early spring, there is no charge to hikers the rest of the year.
Other area attractions include Kinsmen Park with a spectacular view of Crystal Falls, Mockingbird Hill pioneer farm, Tarentorous Fish Culture Station and the Crystal Creek Mountain Bike Trail.
