Let’s start with what seems to be the most popular spot at Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area, known for it’s beautiful views. Buffalo Crag Lookout Point.

This hike is scenic and not too difficult, taking you to beautiful lookout points overlooking the Nassagaweya Canyon.

Don’t forget to snap some photos before you move on to the other trails.

Next up, the Nassagaweya Trail. This trail connects Rattlesnake Point to the nearby Crawford Lake, which has a boardwalk around a beautiful blue-green lake.

When you loop back around you’ll notice something pretty cool as you pass by the escarpment. Along the escarpment you’ll see cedars that date back more than 800 years. The cedars are as beautiful as they are delicate and special so be sure to treat the area with respect as you pass through.

You can book a day pass ahead of time or pay at the gate, which has gate attendants from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Monday – Friday.

Day passes cost $10.50 per adult.

Take in the views and have a great time at Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area.
