Halton Hills

Halton Hills

Comprised by two urban centres, rural countryside and natural attractions, including portions of the Niagara Escarpment and the Bruce Trail, the area of Halton Hills is the perfect blend of country and small town.

Halton Hills is a short distance from Toronto and serves as a great getaway trip, with hiking, fishing and golf opportunities, farmers’ markets and boutique shopping.
