Rattlesnake Point is one of the most beautiful places in Ontario: spend the day there in any season and you’ll see what we mean. You’ll see the turkey vultures soaring over the escarpment from Buffalo Crag look-out point and view interesting ecological rarities, like the thousand-year-old cedars growing throughout the park.

Fun fact! Rattlesnake Point receives its name from the snake-like path cut by glaciers along the edges of the Niagara Escarpment, rather than from the Massassauga Rattlesnake - like commonly thought.

Camp under the stars and find the constellations, get out of the gym and rock climb on a cliff face, stretch out your stress during Yoga in the Park or enjoy a day hike with your family and friends: Rattlesnake Point is your great outdoors close to home. Whatever adventure you find, Rattlesnake Point will surely get you 'slithering' with excitement!
