The Elora Gorge Conservation Area includes a large campground and various hiking trails. The gates are closed in the winter, howver the area is open to snowshoeing and cross country skiing. You can explore the campground or take on some of the trails along the gorge itself. Some of the hills along the gorge are tricky, we ended up taking off our skis at some parts. There is a spiderweb of trails winding through the campground so it's easy to detour around any hairy spots. The trails along the gorge are well travelled and are suitable for walking. There's some good opportunities to see the ice-covered rocks in the river and even some frozen waterfalls.
From Guelph, take Hwy. 6 North to Fergus. Take County road 18 to Elora then Follow the signs to the Racetrack Slots. The conservation area is on County road 21 south of Elora just across from the racetrack. Parking is along the roadside in the winter. This is one of two conservation areas in Elora, the other one is not open in winter.
