MacAuley Mountain Conservation Area features a steep east-west escarpment rising some 40 metres above the local terrain. Macaulay Mountain is a favourite destination for hikers and picnickers. There is plenty to see here from famed Birdhouse City with its over 100 miniature reproductions of local buildings, to the
Whattam’s Memorial Walkway. This walkway is maintained by Whattam’s Funeral home. There are 20 km of trails on this 178 hectare (440 acre) property, including biking trails.
