Explore forests, marshlands, and glacial erratics at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area. The variety of facilities and programs offered at this site, as well as its natural setting and size, make it a great place to visit all year long.
A trail system runs throughout the conservation area, providing hikers with a chance to explore 282 hectares of woodlands and meadows. In the spring, wildflowers and migrating birds are plentiful, and the fall colours are spectacular. During summer months picnicking, or fishing in the four hectare reservoir make Scanlon a great place to spend a few hours or an entire day.
