Belfountain Conservation Area

If you are ever planning to have a relaxing day, just to sit down and enjoy the beauty of nature with a view of a waterfall... then Belfountain Conservation Area is for you.

 There is plenty to see and do at Belfountain. A nature trail spans the river gorge using a suspension bridge and then winds along the steep sides of the Escarpment requiring steady feet and approximately 30 minutes to walk.

History behind Belfountain - From

Close to the picturesque village of Belfountain, this 8 ha site once belonged to Charles Mack, inventor of the cushion-back rubber stamp. 

Mack and his wife Addie purchased the property in 1908, where he developed his version of a miniature Niagara Falls and Yellowstone Cave. Mr. Mack had a suspension bridge built downstream from the dam and created a fountain topped with a bell honouring the town. He also added stone walls, footpaths, scenic lookouts and a guesthouse. The couple lived in a small house deep in the park.

Currently due to Covid-19 safety measures, the Belfountain Conservation Area is closed. However, I just wanted to share this beautiful treasure from Caledon, Ontario. Even if it is not possible to visit this treasure in 2020, please have this place on your bucket list to explore for 2021.
