Waterdown, Ontario, just north of Hamilton boasts very nice hiking and mountain biking trails.
We went for a hike as it’s too muddy to ride mountain bikes just yet. We actually cut our hike short because of the mud. Parking is free behind Wal-Mart / Lowes off of Dundas Street, Highway 5, in Waterdown.
Here’s a view of what we hiked in red using the AllTrails app. As you can see there’s lots more trails to explore.
