Hilton Falls Conservation Area

Ski/Snowshoe/Hike

Wednesday, February 24

Time: Between 9:00 – 11:30 a.m.

This is NOT a guided activity. The plan is to have HOC members come to Hilton Falls on the morning of the 24th. You may arrive anytime between 9:00 and 11:30 and stay for 2 hours. You must book your own time to enter Hilton Falls Conservation Area. You can choose to xc ski, snowshoe, or hike. We ask that you register on our HOC Events Calendar, as this allows all of us to see who else is coming (perhaps you will plan to meet friends there) and it will give us an idea of numbers attending. Think of this as being similar to a ski/snowshoe day trip, where we all arrive at a destination and do our own thing BUT you will see other HOC members on the trail and hopefully find someone to share the trails with. 

Registration: There are 2 steps to registration

STEP 1: Register with HOC on the Events Calendar 

STEP 2:  Register on-line with Conservation Halton to book your visit to Hilton Falls on Feb 24 between 9:00 and 11:30 a.m. Here is what you do:

  • On google search type in parkvisit.ca. Hit Enter.
  • Click on ‘Conservation Halton Reservation’ 
  • Arrow over to make sure the page is on Hilton Falls. Make sure you book the right park! 
  • Choose Wednesday, Feb 24 sometime between 9:00 – 11:30. Time slots are 10 minutes apart and allow you to stay for 2 hours.
  • Follow the prompts to complete registration 
  • The cost is $6.50 per adult or $5.00 per senior or free if you are a member of Conservation Halton. Have your license plate number on hand.
  • Cancellation with Conservation Halton is possible (read the terms and conditions) and you may self-cancel with HOC, if your plans change. 


HOC is not limiting numbers but there may be restrictions for Hilton Falls so we advise you to book as soon as possible.

Upon arrival to the parking lot, just gear up and start your chosen activity and hopefully you will meet others on the trail.  We will not be gathering as a group as we typically do. 

Terrain and Conditions: Trails are relatively wide and smooth and conducive to xc skiing/snowshoeing . The terrain is gently rolling with a bigger ascent at the start (skiers may choose to walk up this section) and a descent at the end. We cannot forecast the actual snow conditions in advance. Hilton Falls has been track setting the main trails, but the tracks may be “skied- in” to varying degrees. 

Notes: If you are hiking, traction devices and poles will be useful. If you plan to ski or snowshoe but conditions are not good, bring hiking boots etc. so you have an alternate activity. Carry water, snacks, extra layers, and a mask.  


The club’s Covid-19 Safety Guidelines will be observed.


You will be able to arrive at Hilton Falls 15 minutes prior to your allotted time and your visit will be limited to 2 hours.
