The many slopes on these trails are the result of drainage patterns which undercut the soft sediments left after the last period of glaciation almost 11,000 years ago.
Located in Fonthill near St. Catharines, Short Hills Provincial Park is a 735-hectare day-use park that has six-side trails along with the Bruce Trail, and contains two magnificent waterfalls.
This interesting park had both dense forests and open meadows, and also has meandering creeks and gentle hills that are perfect for strolling on.
Directions: From the QEW exit at Regional Road 24 and head south through Vineland, until you come to Regional Road 69. Head east long 69 until you come to the paring lot. Look for the park sign that is set back from the road, there is ample parking here.
