Located less than an hour from the city, you can discover a serene winter wonderland with soaring views.

Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area is nestled along the Niagara Escarpment in Milton, and it’s a gorgeous place for a snowy hike.

The area is full of trails and has five towering lookout points where you can gaze across the world below.

The Buffalo Crag trail is the path to take if you want to find the best views. The vantage points boast views of a snow-filled valley, and you can watch the "escarpment glitter" in the sun.
