Today’s hike was at RattlesnakePoint, a great little conservation area, again featuring theNiagara Escarpment. Rattlesnake Point is located in the Halton Region ConservationArea , just North of Dundas on Appleby Line, North ofBurlington, and has trails that attach it to the Bruce Trail (and to otherconservation areas). You can see the satellite map here. If you’re driving North on Appleby to get there you’ll betreated to one of the most interesting roads in the flatlands ofthe GTA (it’svery Italy like, with too narrow of a road twisting and curving atamazing gradations).
The ropes you see there are evidence of the rockclimbers who scale this face, one of the few natural opportunitiesto do so in this region. A couple more pictures from today’souting can be found here. Thisarea is a great little day outing, and is absolutely beautiful asfall rolls around.
