Covering 660 hectares of land, Short Hills Provincial Park is the largest in the Niagara Region. It spans seven trails including the Paleozoic Trail, which offers a spectacular view of Swayze Falls. The park also contains a wide variety of animal and plant life including deer, wild turkeys, and many species of birds.
The park is named for the short hills that appear throughout as a result of glacial erosion more than twelve thousand years ago. If you’re a nature lover, you owe it to yourself to stop here, if only for a brief survey – its biodiversity and scenic beauty is astounding.
