Two Great Lakes and the Niagara Escarpment surround the Niagara Peninsula, making its cross-country skiing and snowshoeing season extremely short. It rarely gets any significant snow cover and some years, there’s no snow cover at all. The Niagara Peninsula includes Burlington, Grimsby, Hamilton, Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the- Lake, St. Catharines, Stoney Creek and Welland. This area is sheltered by the Niagara Escarpment and includes the Welland Canal, Carolinian forests and an unusually rich variety of bird species. This Trail Guide includes descriptions of Ball's Falls Heritage Conservation Area, Beamer Memorial Conservation Area, Binbrook Conservation Area, Bronte Creek Provincial Park, Chippawa Creek Conservation Area, Christie Lake Conservation Area, Dundas Valley Conservation Area, Fifty Point Conservation Area, Long Beach, Niagara River Recreation Trail, Rockway Conservation Area, St. Catherines Trail System, St. Johns Conservation Area, Short HIlls Provincial Park, Steve Bauer Trail, and Valens Conservation Area.
