Interesting part of Hamilton: worthwhile to see

Spend a good 1.5-3 hours here and take your time having a look around. It's quite the underrated conservation area. BUT it's true, the caves may be underwhelming if you're... read more

I have never seen or heard of karsts before and I was happy to be able to visit Eramosa Karst. My friends and I went there for a photo hike on a very cold day. The place itself is small and the hiking trails are not even 3 kms. in total. There is a parking fee, as well as washroom... More

With an easy trail to walk and such a peaceful space so close to the city this is a great destination for a family afternoon. Good for all levels of abilities and attention span as it won't take too long to see.

We went for the caves. Because of that, it was disappointing because the one we found was closed up with large boulders and we couldn't find any others. Many of the trail markers were missing as well. The walk through the woods was pleasant and easy. You could even have a stroller through there. Perfectly suitable for a trek through... More

I suppose we had our expectations set higher than there was need for. We were the only ones there which kinda surprised us, but half way back we did run into another young couple. We found the trail path to the cave nothing special it felt more like walking in a field with a path made through. The path wasn't... More

Great hiking and interesting natural formations all around the area. A few of the caves were just large enough to squeeze into (if you dared) and there were a mix of shady areas and open fields full of thistle and wild flowers. Parking was by the hour and cost around $4 for 4-5 hours. The welcome area was very new... More

I was staying with family in the area so we walked to the Eramosa Karst Conservation Area. It was a nice refuge in the middle of typical suburban sprawl; you almost forget about all the houses and traffic in the area, and the Karst features are interesting. HOWEVER, there was a lot of litter on the property. And since we... More

Spend a good 1.5-3 hours here and take your time having a look around. It's quite the underrated conservation area. BUT it's true, the caves may be underwhelming if you're expecting something you can walk around in and explore: they're not very deep. I still highly recommend it for solo or family hiking. :)

I live only a few miles from this spectacular place it is a nice walk and interesting things to see. It is best to go on a nice day so you can explore, take a snack and water with you. Once you start your adventure you will soon forget you are surrounded by surveys. Have fun.
