Limehouse Conservation Area – An 1890s Educational Hike


Limehouse Conservation Area, part of Credit Valley Conservation, in Limehouse, Ontario is a short educational hike dating back to 1890.

With nine sites to see along the way, climbing a set of steep stairs to explore crevasses, a walk along pretty Credit River, THIS WAS A “WOW” HIKE!
