Admission: $10.00 (including tax)
Maple Syrup: $7.00 (small bottle)
Maple fudge treats: $1.00 (very stale)

There's not a whole lot to do. Each station isn't very exciting. The only "exciting" part was the taffy which costed $2.00 each after you paid $10.00 to get in.

They give you no samples and you basically pay to walk around and see nothing.

Would not recommend anyone to waste their beautiful afternoon on an expensive festival with no entertainment. It's not worth it!

Nostalgia brought me back here after many years. It remains a serene place; nature at it's best, reminding us of it's beauty. This conservation area is managed by the Credit Valley Conservation Authority and they do a masterful job. There's all kinds of activities for all ages and interests. Recently, they concluded their Fall Festival that I attended. There were food trucks, wagon rides and a great musical group - still playing alongside the rain outside their tent. In another area there was face-painting, pumpkin decorating, and a selection of honey, maple syrups, preserves and other gourmet items.. Beer was also available for this event. In the main tent were stalls selling many unique items.
We did one of the intermediate difficulty trails. There are many different kinds here with various levels of difficulty, lengths or scenery. Ours went up gradually and we were treated to fall foliage at its finest. In winter there are groomed and non-groomed trails, ideal for snow-shoeing. There's lots to see and do here all year round. Check their events calendar to see what's happening and plan a day out. You would not regret it...

I am an annual pass holder but fees are reasonable. Saturday’s in October they have a Fall Festival with face painting and games for the younger children. Food trucks and wagon rides. Walk on a choice of trails through the trees. Fishing and picnicking . Small shop on site too.

This site offers a combination of lakes and forested trails. When we were there in July the water lies were in bloom and the small vistas, framed by tall trees against cerulean skies, and accompanied by the pulsating grunts of frogs, were delightful. The gated entrance may not be manned but there are instructions about leaving fees in envelopes and tearing off receipts for car window display, that are easy to follow. Be forewarned that it may be difficult to pay by credit card, so bring some cash. Given the relative scarcity of similar places in southern Ontario, this area is worth more than a casual stop but it is not possessed of great visual grandeur.

Friends recommended Terra Cotta to us as we're from out of town. We visited at the beginning of June, just after a heavy rain shower. We walked around Wolf Lake expecting to enjoy the scenery etc but were eaten alive by mosquitos. Didn't dare to stop walking to take any pictures because of the mosquitos. Actually, we walked as fast as possible, flapping our arms trying to get outta there as quickly as possible.
