The area is closed off by a fence, but you can Park beside the road and walk on the side and enjoy the view. If you are in Caledon, this beautiful land is a must see!

We made a trip to see the badlands from Brampton. Upon reaching the site there was nowhere that we could see to park and get a better look. There was extensive construction in the area both at the site and on the roads surrounding it...More

If you treat it with respect, it will be here for a long time. This place is so neat and unusual, it is worth a stop. It's small though.

Because of vandalism and erosion of the area due to negligent visitors, the area is closed until a suitable path and viewing area can be established.

It's still pretty cool to see, but considering you can't walk around the area, it's a drive by, so don't go too far out of your way. Parking is on the side of the road, but watch out for no parking areas.
