A Magical landscape

The Hills of Headwaters is the highest elevation in southern Ontario. From here, clear, cold springs bubble up from the earth, pick up rain and melting snow and gather into rivers that flow north, east, south and west into the Great Lakes. On their way, rivers have carved valleys deep and wide that cleave the Niagara Escarpment, creating slopes for skiers, and breathtaking vistas for sightseers. Hike into the high country, along the world-renowned Bruce Trail or a hundred other paths that meander through the trees and along railway rights-of-way. Anytime of year, experience the best nature has to offer in the Hills of Headwaters.
