Macaulay Mountain Conservation Area
Featuring a steep east-west escarpment rising some 40 metres above the local terrain, Macaulay Mountain is a favourite destination for hikers and picnickers. There is plenty to see here from famed Birdhouse City with its over 100 miniature reproductions of local buildings, to the Whattam’s Memorial Walkway. This walkway is maintained by Whattam’s Funeral home. There are 20 km of trails on this 178 hectare (440 acre) property, including mountain biking trails.
A Little History
The conservation area is named after the late William Macaulay, the son of a United Empire Loyalist, who donated much of the land where Picton is located today.
In Picton, take Bridge Street, then Union Street to 224 County Road 8 on the eastern outskirts of Picton.
