Christie Lake

About This Area

Looking for a place to do it all? Christie Lake has you covered from hiking, swimming, boating and fishing to biking, picnicking and even disc golf! One of the most beautiful lake settings on the Niagara Escarpment, Christie Lake is where you’ll want to spend the day with your family and friends. While visiting, explore the trails that wind for 10 kilometres through peaceful meadows and towering pine forests – you’ll be sure to see a wide range of wildlife that make their home in this 336-hectare conservation area. Trails are accessible by foot, bike, snowshoes or cross-country skis, weather permitting. Both swimmers and sunbathers will enjoy Christie Lake’s 360-metre sandy beach. Please note that our natural swimming areas are not supervised and do not have lifeguards on duty.
