The Dutch Mill Market is this place people from all over Southern Ontario come to visit when they are looking for a taste of country within arm's reach of the city! But there is so much more to experience when you visit the beautiful Waterdown and Dundas areas!
Nicknamed the “Valley Town” Dundas is situated at the base of the escarpment in the Dundas Valley. Surrounded by an abundance of trees and greenspace, Dundas is known as one of the prettiest towns in Ontario.
For decades it’s had a population of about 20,000 people, meaning there’s not much new development, mainly because the town can only expand so far due to the protected green spaces and the Dundas Valley Conservation Area taking up a large landmass. Free from the urban sprawl that exists in many surrounding towns and communities, there are so many outdoor adventures waiting to be had here!
Boasting so many gorgeous and preserved conservation areas and parks, if you love waterfalls, hiking trails, and wandering around the great outdoors, you’ll love your trip to Dundas.
Dundas Valley Conservation Area
The Dundas Peak
The trails at the Dundas Valley Conservation Area are very scenic, not terribly challenging, and you’ll be right in the middle of nature. You might witness some deer or other wildlife, and the trees extend far overhead. If you can visit in the fall, it’s one of the best spots to witness the beautiful fall colours.
