Ridges and Gullies

By Linda Tancs

Designated an Area of Natural and Scientific Interest, the Cheltenham Badlands is a geological treasure in Ontario, Canada. Its distinctive feature are the ridges and gullies formed from weather-related erosion of the Queenston shale underlying the shallow topsoil, resulting in a moonscape-like topography. Enjoy the view from an accessible boardwalk or take to the trails. The Badlands Trail connects the Bruce Trail to the viewing platform and takes you through a slow-growth forest.
