Vista Adventure Trail


This trail begins on a forest path that leads to the edge of the escarpment where the Pinnacle Lookout and staircase are located. The trail includes the Trafalgar and Nelson lookouts where great views of Mount Nemo and Lake Ontario can be seen. The trail returns to the starting point by way of the Rabbits Run Trail.

The limestone cliffs of Rattlesnake Point are part of Ontario’s Niagara Escarpment. This well-known landform winds 725 km from Queenston near Niagara Falls to the islands off Tobermory at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.The escarpment was formed over 400 million years ago when a vast tropical sea covered much of North America. The erosive power of preglacial rivers and glacial meltwaters sculpted this geological masterpiece. Rattlesnake Point is located on an isolated rock outlier separated from the escarpment and overlooking the Lowville Valley.
