Just outside the town of Elora is the Elora Gorge Conservation Area where 22 metre (72 ft.) limestone cliffs rise up from the Grand River Valley. Three kilometres of trails with scenic lookouts along the gorge provide hikers an opportunity to enjoy the park. Fences protect visitors from steep cliffs but extreme caution must be taken when hiking along the edge of the gorge.
There is no swimming at Elora Gorge Conservation Area but tubing, kayaking and canoeing are popular at the park.
Elora Gorge Conservation Area encompasses an area of 200 hectares and has more than 300 campsites in forested and grassy areas. This park has a strict No Alcohol policy, including campsites.
