Albion Hills Conservation Area Trails Professional Review and Guide
"Albion Hills was created in 1954, which makes it the oldest conservation area in Ontario. Its location on a part of the Oak Ridges Moraine, locally known as the Caledon Hills, means that hikers can expect hilly terrain. If you appreciate wildflowers, you’ll enjoy forests of trilliums and violets in the spring and meadows of golden rod, scotch thistles and asters in the fall.
Bird-watchers can look for broad-winged and red-shouldered hawks, blackthroated blue and green warblers and wild turkeys. Children particularly enjoy the three trails named after animals because of the many chipmunks and birds they can see. The small furry creatures dodge your steps while blue birds, blue jays, chickadees and robins fly back and forth across the trail, as if trying to lead you on. The small animal signposts are also helpful in that they encourage children to run ahead to discover the correct path."
