For Paul's birthday, we went for a hike to a place we've never visited before - Hilton Falls in Milton, Ontario. Paul and I both come from towns with plenty of forested areas to hike and explore, and we had been looking for that kind of special place nearby since moving to Mississauga. We have definitely found that place in Hilton Falls and I'm sure we will return many more times in the future.
It was the perfect sunny day to walk amongst the trees and explore the area. There were many trails for walking, hiking, and biking that would please anyone who loves nature and the outdoors. We saw chipmunks, squirrels, birds, wildflowers, and an incredibly green landscape during our walk.
There was a beautiful waterfall that we visited partway through our hike. Hilton Falls is a 10-metre waterfall that flows over the Niagara Escarpment down below. We also saw the ruins of an old mill at the site of the waterfall.

Along the path, there were many openings in the ground to watch for and tons of caves beneath. It would be interesting to be able to explore the depths of some of these caves. We just watched our steps and admired these caves from a safe distance!
