Know Before You Go
From Toronto take Hwy 427 to Hwy 401-W then 410 towards Brampton. Exit onto Hurontario-N and continue 9.6km. Turn left on Old Baseline Road and go 3.8km until you see the Badlands on your left. The Cheltenham Badlands northwest of Toronto is now closed to visitors likely for several years while a long-term conservation plan for the ecologically sensitive site is developed, says the Ontario Heritage Trust. A fence will be erected along the road to keep people off the badlands and an environmental consultant will begin work on the conservation plan.
