Halton conservation area

The way to the Falls

Last long Thanksgiving weekend was sunny and bright. Probably the Nature presented to people last warm breath of Autumn. Although there are no a lot of colours around for now the beauty of Fall is everywhere. People spent their weekend to visit surrounding Parks and recreation areas. There were numerous events organized in that places. But mostly people enjoyed the weather on hiking and bicycle trails.
In Halton region that is located to the west of Toronto there are seven recriation areas. Each of them has something special to see and enjoy. One of these places is Hilton  Falls. It is situated on the Niagara Escarpment and really good for summer and winter occasions. But the most spectacular part of the Park is small waterfall.
Small but Beautiful


Morning Star Mill

There are a lot of beautiful hidden places in Niagara region where the environment is very quiet and calm. One of them is Morning Star Mill. It is located on the small creek. On the top there is a nice pond with mirror surface and pleasant landscape around. In the lazy summer afternoon when sun is high and hot the deep forest shade and cool water breeze are good things for refreshment.

The trail is pretty rough and steep. Not many people take this journey to the Twelve Mile Creek to enjoy the waterfall in full its beauty.
