Georgetown Hungry Hollow Trail offers beautiful marshes, ponds, meadows, bridges and boardwalks for hikers, and cross country skiers. Riverwood Conservancy Trail is home to Woodlands, meadows and tablelands, ravines and slopes, wetlands, creeks and floodplain, and former agricultural lands and the Credit River.
Learn how to Ski or Snowboard
Mount Chinguacousy offers a bunny hill for skiing and snowboarding in Brampton. This is a great place for kids to learn the basics before tackling bigger ski hills in Ontario like Blue Mountain, or Horse Shoe Valley. If you are looking for a little bit bigger than take a drive to Glen Eden in Milton.
Enjoy Cross Country Sking
As part of the The City of Brampton Winter Wonderland campaign, they have introduced a cross-country skiing recreational trail and a snowshoeing recreational trail, located at Chinguacousy Park. These recreational trails are available for independent use by residents during regular park operating hours and offer additional opportunities for residents to enjoy the outdoors during the winter months while maintaining safe physical distancing. Get Outdoors and enjoy tall trees covered in fresh snow and the quiet sound of crunching snow below your feet. You can find Cross Country Skiing in Halton Hills using the trails at Conservation Halton and Credit Valley Conservation parks which are inviting and exciting.
Visit Treewalk Village
Treewalk Village is geared towards children aged 3-7 years old, however on both visits I saw 2 year olds enjoying the activity with parental support. This activity is available to all ages. This is a 2 hour activity, and timeslots must currently be prebooked. Children can run wild and explore from treehouse to treehouse that are 8ft from the ground. Each treehouse is connected by nets, hammocks and wood bridges that challenge children’s abilities in a fun way. Overcome the obstacles and enjoy a slide ride to the ground. Open on weekends in the Winter!
