Stoney Creek is a community within Hamilton that offers residents, day travellers and tourists alike vast opportunities to explore the endless supply of jaw-dropping nature views, including that of Eramosa Karst Conservation Area located on Upper Mt Albian Rd. There are 7+ kilometres of recreational trails filled with underground caves to explore, peaceful streams, and meadows and forests filled with Canada’s fascinating native plants.
Best Place for Recreational Activities
If you’re planning on doing more than just hiking, Eramosa Karst Conservation Area allows for all kinds of activities for your family to enjoy such as biking, cross country skiing, geocaching, picnics, and more. Karst is a topography that’s formed by dissolving rock found in limestone just like along the Niagara Escarpment. This is why you’ll find a wide array of different cave formations, passages and underground drainage (which originated approximately 13,000 years ago). The cave is also the tenth-largest cave in Ontario.
If you have a Hamilton Conservation Authority membership pass, you’ll have access to this conservation area, as well as eight others, without paying the parking fee. If you just wish to use the park for the day, there are no entrance fees, but a daily parking fee will apply at $10.
