Quiet hide-out

Albion Hills Conservation Area's beach is wide in certain sections, and sufficiently long to satisfy those seeking a quiet sandy hide-out at its far end. I suspect fewer people stop in front of that part of the lake because of the muddier bottom in that area. When we visited, our kids spent a while observing the tadpoles. At the edge of that far end, you can take a trail running up the hill bordering the lake. From the highest point, you will get a great view. If you choose to cross the road by the entrance of the trail, you'll reach the narrow Humber River, complete with picnic areas along the way. It eventually leads to the campground. You must take your car to access more hiking trails at Cedar Grove parking lot (1.6 to 5.8 kms long). They're open for mountain bikes. The conservation area rents paddle boats and canoes. They added the Lakeview Splash water-play facility in 2010.
