WATERFALLS HIKING AND STRAWBERRY PICKING
In 2017, Canada celebrates 150 years as a nation and Travelling Chicken would like to show you the most beautiful places of Eastern Canada! Join the party and celebrate #Canada150 with us - Canada is THE place to be in 2017!
Join us on our day trip to Niagara region for waterfall hiking and strawberry picking.
We will start our day at Tigchelaar Berry Farm in Jordan where you can pick your own strawberries. It's fun and you will support a local farm. After the hardwork you will deserve some little snack so we will just walk to the cheese farm Upper Canada Cheese Company where you can sample hand crafts premium artisanal cheeses from the milk of local Guernsey cows.
Our next stop is Ball's Falls, Ontario, also known as Balls Mills, Louthe Mills and Glen Elgin. It's a historical ghost town located in what is now a part of Jordan in the Niagara region which dates back to the early 19th century. It is now preserved as a conservation area operated by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority.
There are two waterfalls on Twenty Mile Creek. The upper falls are 35 feet high, and the lower falls are 90 feet high.
After this hike we are going to visit Rockway Conservation Area. We will hike the trail into the Fifteen Mile Creek valley amongst the majestic mature Basswood, Sugar Maple, Black Walnut and Sycamore trees.
There are 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.
Our last stop will be at Albion Falls in Hamilton. Albion Falls is a 19 m classical/cascade waterfall flowing down the Niagara Escarpment in Red Hill Valley.
