Iroquoia Heights Conservation Area is a fairytale crossroads to many of the natural areas in the Hamilton community. Its leisurely 3 km loop featuring waterfalls and beautiful grasslands, intersecting with the Bruce Trail, West Iroquoia Falls, Dundas Valley Conservation Area, Tiffany Falls, Tiffany Falls Conservation Area, Chedoke Radial Trail, and the Chedoke Golf Course. 

Fun fact! The Iroquoia Heights Conservation Area is known for its large population of White Tail Deer by which many studies and population control projects have grown around. An article publish by the Hamilton Spectator addressed the issue saying, "It is a biological fact there are too many deer in near-urban green-spaces surrounding Hamilton. This new deer overabundance is the cause of dangerous and increasing deer-car collisions, damage to crops, private property and forest ecosystems and rare species -- the very things conservation areas are mandated to conserve." To the great stress of the deer, this is a popular opinion held by the Hamilton community that has caused a swell in authorized and illegal culling of 'Bambi's' throughout the park.
