Cool place

If you treat it with respect, it will be here for a long time. This place is so neat and unusual, it is worth a stop. It's small though.

I drove by this land formation not knowing it was going to be there! What a surprise! It was so pretty and even on a cloudy and gloomy day the colours were fairly bright. In summary: Very pretty and unique land form.

The Badlands used to be a great place to view. The Police have Ruined it for everyone. You can't slow down, much less stop to enjoy them.

This area of Caledon, Ontario is very scenic in the spring and during the fall colors, some of the horse farms have, very exceptional architecture, with homes, barns and ridding arenas all in the same stile. In the winter you can admire this through the bear trees.

Too many police and speed bumps patrolling, no parking... you literally can't do anything here now, just drive by. Climbing the badlands was fun and good exercise but now there's a fence, although it doesn't stop some people. Just a money-making opportunity for the cops now.

Badlands are worth a visit when in the Toronto area. Can get crowded on the weekends especially in Fall. Would've given it 5 stars. but they put up a fence that blocks most of the view. Still worth a visit!

A very unique formation - definitely worth taking a camera for some pics. At the moment they have the area fenced off for the protection of it, as tourists had been walking the area for so long it was beginning to erode the land - they're working on putting in a parking lot to control traffic as well.

I believe best time to visit this place is between 12 to 30 October. Too bad that it was closed due to maintenance but you have can have a quick watch while driving along the road.

This natural feature is breathtaking and a photographer's dream. You just have to see it! Best time is summer or fall, while taking in the fall colours!

A very interesting geological formation only a short trip from Toronto. Unfortunately, there is NO parking along the road and a parking area along Creditview Road is no marked and neither is the trail through the woods that takes you to the location. Definitely a stop worth making if you are in the area and can walk a somewhat rugged... More
