Explore the old mill ruins at Rockwood Conversation Area and take a kayak out along the picturesque Eramosa River. Some natural treasures, such as gigantic limestone cliffs, caves, and glacial potholes are available for you to discover. The forest-filled trails are very well maintained for an easy yet fulfilling hike. If you are looking for an extra challenging hike, this is not the park for you. The two main trails are accessible from the beach or mill ruins but beware of high cliffs and steep slopes.
