Looking for a jam packed day of recreation or just a nice day at the beach? Then Albion Hills is the place for you. Ontario’s first Conservation Area, Albion Hills is set in the Caledon Hills on the banks of the Humber River. The 446-hectare park is the outdoor enthusiast’s dream! You can do it all at Albion Hills.
For a leg-stretching walk, park near the ski chalet. From behind the chalet, pick up the red trail and follow it as it meanders through a reforested area. At the various trail junctions, continue to follow the red trail, which eventually crosses Centreville Creek and then follows the creek past an outdoor education centre. The centre is set in a pleasant meadow that, in fall, is bright with the purple and yellow flowers of asters and goldenrod. Look for pheasants and white-tailed deer in the meadow, as well. Just after red trail once again meets the blue trail, you’ll come to a spot where the red trail makes a ninety-degree turn. From this corner, there is a great view of the Caledon Hills and of the outdoor school tucked in the meadow below.
After a couple more turns, the red trail follows almost a straight line back to the chalet, passing through a well-equipped picnic area that might be a good place to stop for lunch. Information provided by the Albion Hills Conservation Area website.
