The 735-hectare day-use park is the largest in Niagara Region. The “short hills” refers to the carved-out peaks and valleys that make the pathways of this park a hikers paradise. The park offers stunning scenery of the Niagara Escarpment including Swazye Falls.
The park also contains a number of excellent trails popular with mountain bikers and equestrian riders.
The Carolinian Forest brings common and unique wildlife species to Short Hills including wolves, deer and fox. The park is also home to many significant bird and reptile species. Plant and animal species are protected so visitors are asked to obey signs and minimize their impact on the delicate environment.
