Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area, located in Burlington, Ontario, is a fan favourite among local hikers because its trails guide you along the edge of the escarpment offering beautiful lookouts and scenic views of Burlington and beyond.

Rattlesnake Point has two closed-loop trails that total about 5km in distance. You can also hike along the Bruce Trail or the Nassagaweya Canyon Trail which leads into Crawford Lake Conservation Area. Rattlesnake Point is also popular with rock climbers and offers the opportunity to scale the cliffs of this unique ecosystem that includes cedar trees that are over 800 years old! Plus, if you're thru-hiking, Rattlesnake also offers camping year-round which makes it the perfect pitstop.
