Kerncliff Park

Overlooking Kerncliff Park wetlands
This park in North-Central Burlington is great for anyone who likes nature and/or hiking. Just south of the new city park being built at Kerns Rd. and Dundas (Hwy 5), on the edge of the Bruce Trail, there are quite a few kilometres of trails to hike, in addition to the Bruce Trail itself.
Situated on the site of the old Nelson quarry, now transformed into a wetland with boardwalk, and encompassing land south and east of the quarry it is a popular site with locals who enjoy the natural setting.

Parking and washrooms are available at the entrance, but once you are on the trails you are on your own so come prepared.

If you found our geocaching article interesting then you'll like the park as there are several caches contained therein.

Do not attempt to get to the park from Hwy 5 as the Kerns Road southbound lanes end before the park and the street becomes one way for about a kilometre.  Instead drive north on Kerns Road either from South Service Road west off Brant Street, or via Tyandaga Park Drive, two lights north of the 407 bridge on Brant Street.

The following three pictures show more detail from the first picture.  Can you find where on that picture these come from?
