Rockwood Conservation Area Trails


Towering limestone cliffs, caves and glacial potholes, including one of the world's largest, are a few of the natural wonders at the Rockwood Conservation Area. You can view them from hiking trails on both sides of the Eramosa River or in a rented canoe. The conservation area has over 65,000 visitors a year from near and far and offers excellent recreational opportunities only a short distance from major metropolitan areas.

The scenic remains of an old mill have been preserved and are available for rent for weddings and other special events. Two large ponds in the park once supplied waterpower for a woolen mill and grist mill. Today, non-motorized boating is allowed on these ponds, where you can fish for rainbow trout and smallmouth bass.

Directions: Go North on the Guelph Line. Stay on Guelph line until Hwy. 7 Go east on Hwy. 7 to Fall St. Turn South on Fall St. to the front gate. Information provided by the Grand River Conservation website. http://www.grandriver.ca/index/document.cfm?Sec=27&Sub1=130&Sub2=0
