Homestead Trail


An open country trail with a pretty waterfall view. The valley's 1,200 hectares of Carolinian forests, fields, cold-water streams and stunning geological formations are home to an array of rare plants, birds and wildlife. More about Carolinian forests. The Dundas Valley is part of the Niagara Escarpment which has been designated a World Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The 40-kilometre trail system is organized around a main loop with five linear trails providing visitors with access to almost every part of the valley. The conservation area is bisected by one of the region's most important walking, cycling and equestrian routes - the West Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail, which stretches 32 kilometres (20 miles), from Ewen Road in Hamilton to Mohawk Park in Brantford. Links to Cambridge and Paris extend the trail another 50 kilometres.
