I recently visited the Limehouse Conservation Area for a family hike along a short stretch of the Truce Trail. Limehouse is a not-far drive north of Toronto and is part of the conservation areas under jurisdiction of Credit Valley Conservation.
This was our first visit to this hiking trail. We much enjoyed the opportunity to do a little climbing and to see the Niagara Escarpment outcrops that can be found in this area. When you’re within the outcrops, the air is so much cooler than in the surrounding forest. The contrast is remarkable.
I was also interested to learn a bit about the history of the limestone kilns that are embedded in the landscape.
The warning signs in the area are beautifully written – a hallmark of all of the communications associated with Credit Valley Conservation (CVA).
Hikers are responsible, as a sign by the trail notes, for their own safety. What a great concept!
I’ve written extensively about the impressive, high-quality work that CVA is doing in Mississauga. I was delighted to learn that Limehouse is also connected with CVA. I highly recommend Limehouse as a place for a great hike, on a warm, sunny day in September. It’s a great place to visit, most any time of year.
