The Oak Ridges Moraine is an important bio-region for the communities and rural areas that live along its border. Aside from providing a rolling hilly landscape with forests, fields, wetlands and lakes, the Moraine supplies drinking water and is the source of 30 rivers and streams.
Albion Hills plays an important role in the Humber River Valley, a water system that links Lake Ontario to the Oak Ridges Moraine and the Niagara Escarpment.
Visit the Conservation Area's 516 hectares (1,275 acres) in late fall, when meadows bloom with Asters and Goldenrod, and views across the rolling Caledon Hills are most colourful. From the nature centre, walk down the hill toward Taylor's Pond.
From the docks, a Conservation Area trail leads through a Pine plantation and follows the south edge of the pond. You're bound to see a variety of migratory waterfowl here during the fall. The trail continues to an old railway bed and follows the Caledon Trailway. Near Patterson Side Road, the Bruce Trail leaves the Trailway bed; descend the stairs at the railway bridge and look for the blazes on the trees. For more information on this and other Bruce trails please purchase the Bruce Trail map and trail guidebook.
