Long Description:
To reach this waypoint, you can park at Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area (Fee Required!) and hike about 300 metres. Alternatively you can park elsewhere and hike in on the Bruce Trail - but you're looking at a much longer hike.

This waypoint is for the Trafalgar Lookout. This lookout is atop the Niagara Escarpment at a point where it forms a cliff 80 feet high. Standing here, you will see the rural farms of Halton, the City of Mississauga, Burlington and Toronto, and the Town of Oakville.

There is a memorial bench at the lookout. Washrooms and picnic tables are at the conservation area.
