St. Johns

Recreational Activities Available

Description

Nestled within the Niagara Escarpment and Twelve Mile Creek valley, this natural area provides a tranquil setting for wildlife and visitors. Renown as a hot spot for seasonal trout fishing, this site is also known for birdwatching and nature education.

The Tulip Tree, Sassafras, Horseshoe, and St. Johns Ridge Trails wind there way through this large interior forest, allowing visitors to experience the spectacular ‘old growth’ trees, the largest stand of tulip trees in the Niagara Peninsula, groundwater seeps, a variety of magnificent song birds and pond ducks. Hiking trails are of varying lengths and difficulty, and some have wheelchair and stroller accessibility, making this a place for everyone to connect with nature at their own pace.

St. Johns is a unique and fragile ecosystem. Help us protect it by keeping to the trails and refraining from removing any plants or animals (including minnows, tadpoles and frogs).
