rockway c. a.


Rockway Conservation Area is part of the Niagara Escarpment and offers history and beauty in a remote setting. Hike the trail into the Fifteen Mile Creek valley amongst the majestic mature Basswood, Sugar Maple, Black Walnut and Sycamore trees.

View two waterfalls,  the larger of which plunges from a height of 19.5 meters (63 ft), and the smaller from a height of 12.2 meters. The watercourse continues downriver, surging over a series of rapids.

Experience history at the remnant salt spring dating as far back as 1792. This trail side site contained some of the best quality and quantity of salt in Ontario. Site facilities include limited parking off 9th Avenue on escarpment tablelands.
