If home is really where the heart is, then I guess we live in the woods. And if you crave outdoor adventure as much as us, then you need to add this charming Ontario conservation area to your bucket list immediately. Filled with whimsical stone bridges and rocky hallways, there’s so much for you to explore here.
Limehouse Conservation Area is located in the Halton Hills area less than an hour away from the 6ix, making it an ideal day trip destination for Torontonians.
Sections of the famous Bruce Trail run through this natural gem and lead you to an area known as the “hole in the wall.”
Here, you’ll see giant fissures in the escarpment rock that look like little stone hallways.
For those daring enough, there are even ladders so you can crawl down and explore further.
You’ll also find a little stone bridge that crosses over Black Creek, and honestly, it looks like something straight out of a fairytale.
So if you’re looking to add some truly magical spots to your list of outdoor escapades this summer, Limehouse is one you won’t want to miss.
Now it’s time to strap on those hiking boots.
As you wander through the natural beauty here, you’ll also stumble upon past remnants of the Lime industry from the 1800s.
The abandoned lime kilns and an old powderhouse give this beautiful spot a unique touch of history.
Admission to the conservation area is free and you can even bring your doggo along for the journey.
As long as they’re on a leash, that is.
This spot just keeps getting better.
In fact, this little oasis isn't just great in the warmer months, it also turns into a total winter wonderland when it gets cold.
At the time of writing Limehouse Conservation Area is open, but there are a number of rules and restrictions in place.
For example, the trails are open but the bathrooms and parking lots are still closed, so it's pedestrian visitors only.
Be sure to check their website before you visit for the most up-to-date rules.
So, go on, cave into that explorer's urge!
